It’s been a long, long week.

Didn’t realize it until Saturday, but I’ve been busy basically all day, every day from Thursday through Saturday. On Thursday, I met with one of Otherspace’s artists, the character designer for our Cartoon Network pitch. She had some screenplay material that we went over, after I got lost and wandered around for an hour. On Friday, my parents came over and we watched The Magnificent Butcher, plus random videos from Google Video. On Saturday, I made a key lime pie, granola bars, and cinnamon blackberry muffins, attended a weekly Otherspace meeting, and went to Guy’s Night Out (Die Hard, the MST3K episode Hobgoblins, and two episodes of Ghost Stories). Got home around 11:15.

So I took today off. Off from my personal responsibilities as well as my more public ones. The only chore I did today was two loads of laundry. I filled the rest of my time by re-watching The Critic.

And…it feels so good. I really needed some time to just relax and do nothing of any consequence. To recharge. To refill.

This week, I’ve really realized how important it is for a person to have some “off” time. Some time to recharge. Most of the folks I know spend too much time goofing off and too little time feeding their dreams (as far as I can see, at least), so it’s been very hard for me to recognize this need. But it’s there.


Animom :o)
Anonymous As far as you can see they spend too much time goofing off? What folks do you see but don’t talk to are you talking about here? Their slacking off has made you not realize that relaxing once in a while is good? Also, “I really needed some time to […] do nothing of any consequence.” I don’t think you need to worry about that.
Stephen Nice. Anyhoo, despite what some anonymous say, relaxing is all well and good. But what happened with eHarmony?
Animom Key lime pie sounds delicious. Also, lemon poppy seed muffins are a favorite of mine. Glad you’re getting some much needed R&R. I also think you should eliminate anonymous comments. You don’t deserve to be a target.
Brent I’ve been going out with a young woman from eHarmony, so I haven’t really gone back there for a while. I’m pleased with it so far.
