Things You Can Do When You're Home Alone

  • Eat whatever you want, so long as you're willing to cook it yourself, eat by yourself, and clean it up when you're done.
  • Watch 5 (or more) episodes of Lost. Per day.
  • Blog, but only if your daily to-do list is done (mine currently run to three Post-It notes long, in roughly 9 point Arial)
  • Realize that the couch your wife bought on, while not something you would ever have considered (or even looked at twice), is actually very nice and a good deal.
  • Not talk for hours. Then talk to yourself (or to the TV, it's perfectly normal), realize that you're not too fond of the sound of your own voice, and so not talk again for hours.
  • Make and eat too many french fries. Excellent.
  • Wash your own clothes, fold them, and put them away.
  • Play the video games that you can't play when the kids are home (Syphon Filter, Star Wars: Battlefront).
  • Wonder what games your kids are playing, and realize you'd rather play those.
  • Drink way more Cokes than usual. Don't ask how many.
  • Go shopping for unmentionables and nail clippers. Look at a really cool messenger bag, and then realize you're too old. Same with hats.
  • Set the alarm clock to wake you up at 5 AM with Smashing Pumkins (Siamese Dream, ftw).
  • Eat ice cream at night, and complain all you want with the cramps that inevitably come.
  • Eat yogurt the next night.
  • Call your wife, every hour, on the hour.
  • Remember to never, ever, miss being single.

Whew. I found my Smashing Pumpkins CD. For a while there, I thought we had packed it along with the rest of the CD's. I can't wait to get those all back.

This is good news, because if I hadn't found Siamese Dream, I would have been waking up to The Stone Roses, which isn't nearly sufficient to get me out of bed after the 3 hours or so of sleep I'll be getting tonight.

Okay. 6 episodes of Lost.
