Let me explain something here.

This week everyone kept asking: "So any fun plans this weekend?"

And my response was: "No"

And what people mostly presumed was that while I did have plans, they weren't fun.

I should have explained that I have no plans of any kind. I was invited to go "down Cape", to go camping, sailing, zombie marching, picnicking, canoing, and while I will admit that I would have probably have said yes to oakie-noodling, I just did not want to have to do anything this whole weekend.


The luxury of my life is that I am only answerable to myself. I don't have to check in with anyone if I want to do something or go somewhere, I don't have to feed a kid or a pet, I don't feel bad if I drink the last beer or eat the last piece of toast - all things I don't mind having to do if I were in a situation that required it. But since I am not, I like to enjoy not having to.

Like right now, I am catching up on my blog and my emails and listening to Alice Cooper Nights on WZLX (the last few tunes included Dokken, Van Halen, Yardbirds...)

I got up when I woke up this morning, went to the gym, cleaned the house a little, had lunch with my sister, went shoe shopping, popped over to see the folksters, half cleaned the bathroom, purged out a desk drawer, talked to a friend for a little while, had a nap....

And you know what? I might do more of the same tomorrow. But then again I might not! Depends on how I feel.

Ah sweet nothing, I love it.

Man, I went to this dinner for these newly weds and spent a lot of time talking to this guy I sort of know. He and I were seemingly the only people there who were single and still living a fairly carefree, selfish life. We were definitely the smartest people there.

I'm sure there's something to be said for marriage and that whole "I know I'm not dying alone" thing, but eh.

Worse is when people are like "oh, you are SOOO lucky you don't have to get up at 7 on a Saturday to deal with kids n'stuff...."

And I am like "lucky? heck no! I am smart! I know how babies are made."
