Have we stopped doing stuff?

I had breakfast at Irene’s with GC, Robin, XUP and Hella Stella this morning. It was a do-over breakfast since our previous attempt to get together was thwarted by XUP’s child’s delicate bones.

During the course of breakfast, XUP inquired as to whether GC and I have stopped doing things, since I apparently have not been blogging about us doing things lately.

GC and I looked at each other. Have we stopped doing things? Have we gradually lapsed into a complacent routine of watching re-runs on television?

Well, not exactly. I sold my TV a few weeks ago, since it was just sitting there taking up valuable living room real estate. (The going price, by the way, for a four-year-old 27″ RCA television is $40.)

But if TV isn’t eating up our time and keeping us from doing stuff, what is? There’s art class on Monday nights and the soup kitchen on Wednesday nights. But the rest of the time, well, time just seems to take care of itself. For example, today we went out for breakfast and I didn’t get home until 4:00. A whole day, shot, just eating breakfast. And sometimes I just sit down at the computer to catch up on my Facebook games and the next thing I know it’s bedtime.

The Big Picture. And Duncan.

When I got home from breakfast this evening, I realized that my living room reflects, fairly accurately, how GC and I have been spending our non-work, non-computer time. [If you click on the pictures, they'll get bigger.]
