Laziest. Weekend. Ever.

It’s not that I’ve been sooo busy that I couldn’t find the time to update my blog. I’ve just been too lazy to do it. I’ve also been too lazy to do most anything else outside of keeping up with daily chores. And I’ve barely done that. Here it is, Tuesday, and I’m still recovering from the Laziest. Weekend. Ever.

It all started on Saturday morning. James and I were up bright and early to head to Collinsville for some kind of home show thing. I wish I had a better description of the event, but we never even made it out of St. Louis. We stopped for a yummy breakfast at our favorite dive, Courtesy Diner. Over eggs, biscuits and gravy we decided to make a quick stop at Sports Authority… which is conveniently located next to James’ favorite store: Best Buy.

It was here that we took advantage of every sale and special Best Buy had to offer, walking out with more movies than we needed. I’m not even sure if we made it outside of the building when we decided that we just HAD to get home to start a movie marathon. It wasn’t even 10:30 in the morning.

We raced home and popped in Trainspotting followed immediately by Knocked Up. (Dear Jeremy, Knocked Up did not suck. It is your movie critiquing skills that S. U. C. K. suck.) After that we started the Roast of William Shatner, the extended and uncensored version. It turns out that the uncensored part was way cool while the extended part way sucked. We totally lost steam after a half-baked Farrah Fawcett took the podium and fumbled every joke. Our excitement ended and so did the marathon.

First thing the next morning (albeit, a later start than the previous day) we watched The Illusionist. Feeling guilty for wasting the weekend away, we began to dust, vacuum and mop. While the floor was drying we pondered our waiting yard work. Pull weeds? Mow grass? Nah, let’s watch Back to School. And so we did.

What’s the moral of this story? There is no moral or lesson to be learned. We’ve been working like maniacs, burning the candle at both ends and needed a break. No work. No house projects. No plans to go here and there. We just needed to participate in some good, old-fashioned laziness.
