Houston, We Have Extreme Boredom!

Or ground control or whoever is out there that can make it different!

I'm definitely in a pickle and even I cringe to read that in writing.

I have lost any interest in reading. I mean, it's completely gone. Wiped out! I'm killer bored and I look at a book and think, nope.

Who am I?

If I had competing interests going on I could see the problem but I finished all the movies I rented last night, there's nothing on TV that is remotely appealing to me, shopping is blah and I'm in that 'killing time' mode again!

There's this saying that pops up every once in a while on my screen saver. I use Paperquote and everyday you can download a new picture and saying but they have been recycling something fierce lately.


Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Susan Ertz, Anger in the Sky

I used to get mad when I saw that saying thinking she didn't know jack. Well, she's friggin' intimate with jack.

The not so good news, although there is comfort in the knowledge for me at least, is that I'm not the only one sucking on fumes. I've done the rounds tonight and I'm not the only one trying to fight off a slump or even boredom and exhaustion.

That said, my brain acts weird anyways so I know I have one of my best buds coming on Thursday so there is this need to get the house cleaned. Then my birthday is on Saturday so it's family day here and then because we left the whole summer blocked we have to go to our friends for a visit on the Sunday.

Stressful? Yeah!

I don't do well when our weekends are packed and poor Bob is feeling the brunt of this one. 'Had to do the stupid shed all summer and now we're booking the end of the summer solid!'

Oh yes, Pleasant Cindy was out earlier tonight.

Poor Bob.

You know how I know when I'm in a real honest to goodness slump?

When I buy a bunch of books online (like I did last night) and then look at the list the next day and think 'meh'.

I'll share what I bought next post and maybe I'll be able to scratch up some enthusiasm.

Wonder if I can buy that online?

I've heard that you can buy just about anything on Ebay! Have you tried there? ;-)

hey Cindy...

I'm so sorry you're bored. Trust me, I know what you mean... being bored sucks :( you know what I don't like about summer... yeah, you have vacation and good weather, but it seriously screws up your schedule and routine... hopefully, you'll go through week-end with success and fun :P

I would just force it. It's like writing when you have writer's block. Just read something or watch a movie, even if you are not in the mood. I usually have a favorite movie I watch when I get in this kinda mood. (For me, it's JUST ONE OF THE GUYS -- never fails to make me laugh -- or TOP HAT -- the dancing always fires my imagination).

And tell us what you bought so that I can lem possibly. . .

I'm right there with you Cindy! I have a whole bunch of books from the library I've borrowed...a month ago! They are just sitting there mocking me. :-(

Boredom = devil's playground. God knows what sort of trouble you'll get into now. ;)

I've been reading the same book since the beginning of the month. The same, freakin', normal-sized book!

I thought it was just me, but I guess not...

ames said...

sorry you're bored. :( What movies did you watch?

I have babies up the wazoo, so no time for boredom. Ugh. LOL

(you're word verification is being naughty-that's all I'm gonna say *shudder*)

Yeah, boredom seems to be in the air. I have been bored out of my mind so much lately; just completely unable to find anything simulating to do. I don’t know what it is but reading is just not appealing to me right now, and even manga isn’t holding my interest as firmly as it usually does. *sigh* Guess I’ll just have to keep filling my time with music and movies until I can find something to do that truly interests me.

Yup - bored, bored, bored. FON was a small bright spot and now I'm back to the doldrums. I'm not even gonna say how long I've had my latest Netflix movie sitting on my coffee table. I'm not inspired. Blah.

(I am, however, extremely curious about Ames' spamanator word.)

Oh, new TV season starts in about a month. That's something.
