Lazy beyond all belief

There's not much that can beat the pleasure of turning the alarm off and not going to work on a snow day. Yesterday, though, something better happened.

An unexpected snow day. Teachers in the south moonlight as meteorologists, because it's really important to know if there's the slightest hint of a shorter workday, or in a perfect scenario, no workday. As a result, so far every snowday this winter has been glorious, yes, but anticipated. Until this week.

We've had a ton of snow this winter. There's not many times where my life choices of being a poor teacher and a lowly renter are validated. Snow days are really all I have. While others have to worry about shoveling the driveway they own to get to the job that gives them periodic pay raises,  I have no worries. I'm free to stay in bed until 5pm, which is exactly what I did.

I spent the whole, entire day with my best friend.

My body pillow. Close second: my electric blanket.

I did get up briefly for Raisin Bran and Kelly and Michael, but other than that, bed. Reading, dozing, repeating. I began to rewatch Orange is the New Black, because if there's one thing I hate, it's broadening my horizons with new experiences when I already know what I like.

I even ate my second bowl of Raisin Bran (for lunch, because cooking is hard. So is putting together a sandwich) in bed. I did grad work in bed. Basically this whole post is that fortune cookie joke.

While I did have to return to work today, it wasn't so bad, because I have future laziness to look forward to. My weekend is wide open, with no plans, other than meeting Lily for a run. So I intend to replicate yesterday's wonderful experience. I might get slightly more motivated though and return to my crocheting. I haven't made much (any) progress so far.

That's about it in my life so far. Except that my random act of kindness pal at work left me three Lindor Truffles in my mailbox. That made today only slightly less amazing than yesterday. I probably spelled that wrong but they are long gone and so are the wrappers.

What other TV shows are good for binge watching? It basically needs to hook me within 5 seconds, and not be something that Eric would like, because then we could watch together (he's working/doing grad work this weekend).



  1. I'm going to assume you have watched "Weeds". I don't know why but it cracks me up.

  2. You ate mailbox candy?

    RIP Alyssa

  3. TV is pretty personal...but I actually got really hooked into The Good Wife earlier this year.

    Enjoy your resting, relaxing, and NOT stressing about the foot. A cold, snowy Jan/Feb is a great time for hibernation. out for that mailbox candy. Really now!!!

  4. This post is my dream. Lounging in bed is my favorite activity of all time.

    I haven't been watching much tv regularly other than Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant. I'm not proud of it. I just can't stop.

  5. Hahaha this is awesome! Start Fire Study!

    I'm big into Law and Order:SVU and am ashamed to say I've seen every single episode until Stabler left (because once he left, what's the point?) Because I've seen them all, I watch them while I'm working or cleaning bc I only have to pay partial attention. And Will thinks I'm a wreck bc he doesn't understand why I like such a twisted show. Sigh.

    1. Oh my gosh, Stabler leaving was tragic, IMO! And Capt Kragen just left recent too. :(

      I vote for New Girl...that show is awesome and there's no way Eric would want to watch it with you :) Also, I am jealous of your snow days. It snows here, but I'm expected to work at home instead or fight my way through the snow if we have meetings. Snow is not fun for me.

  6. All of the show suggestions I have for you are either HBO or Showtime and those are not options for you at the moment. Sorry.

  7. I'm not a big rewatcher of shows unless it's Buffy or Veronica Mars. Right now, I'm super loving Justified. Just finished season 3 last night. Pretty crazy little Friday.


Thanks for commenting! Comments make me probably more happy than they should.
