Boy swallows toy horn, makes hilarious party favor sound when he inhales.

No, seriously, go watch the video. It’s ten seconds of mild amusement.

As a side note, that’s the exact sound Mapp Chicken makes when she sneezes. Cracks me up.

Yes, it’s another lazy, low-effort post from Weasel, and it’ll only get worse this week. I have a lecture to go to tomorrow night, and an all day work-related field trip on Friday. I’m dreading both more than I can say.

Oh, I’ll undoubtedly enjoy myself, but it is in my nature to dread unusual activities. I don’t think people realize what a debilitating handicap it is to be temperamentally low energy and bone idle.

I shoulda been aristocracy. Or one of those maiden aunties who took to her bed with a chill and never got out again.

Perhaps I’ll apply for benefits.

“temperamentally low energy and bone idle.’

That is my goal in life. I’m 3 years from retirement and I salivate at the idea of bone idle. My work life is anything but that, leading me to desire that even more.

Well at least you don’t have to go to Federal jury duty.

“…I’m 3 years from retirement and I salivate at the idea of bone idle.”

Be a bit careful what you wish for –

If, in fact, you’re ordinarily a busy/busily-productive person…you could easily find that, very shortly, actually being “bone-idle”, will get boring as H*ll…and give you either a case of “ants-in-the-pants” agitation, or some serious degree of depression – or some of both.

Most folks DO need at least SOME reason to get up in the morning, and get rolling…and even the most fab of “hobbies” won’t necessarily “git ‘er done” –

I’m only semi-retired – and I sometimes find a need to “work-up” reasons to get up-‘n-attem on some days.

World of Warcraft is not the answer either( though you wouldn’t know it judging by the people you “meet”).

Idle got very very old after a mere month and a half.

I have several ideas for volunteer stuff I want to do someday when all my time isn’t taken up with work and small children. Plus, I promised Mitch a painting like 3 yrs ago and still haven’t delivered. I am the worst.

Benefits? You need to apply for a Grant to study this alternate lifestyle for the Bone Idle community. And, of course, those that identify as bone idle, regardless of their actual acumen at idleness.

I’m pretty bone idle, too, mostly enforced by health issues. I used to be really active, but these days I can barely get out of bed!

But I get not want to go do something new. I’m like that, too. Even things that aren’t new but might have something new happen. I get myself all worked up, even, like Stoaty, I know I’m going to like it once I get there. Weirdo.

Mark Twain- “I am by nature lazy and indolent.”

Said the man who learned four languages and worked on his craft for sixty years.

A compliment from my mother: “Deborah is so lazy that she always figures out the most efficient way to do any chore.”

My mother used to sing the praises of the lazy man and his clever hacks. My mother was honestly the laziest person I’ve ever known.

I enjoyed about five years of complete unemployment before I started to wind down like a cheap alarm clock. Partial employment is the reason there’s not literal moss growing on me.

The right combination is lazy + responsible + smart.
When I was hiring people, I specifically sought out those who would take responsibility for a project or function, and wanted to do the work quickly and efficiently and applied their intelligence to do that so that they could then either take on more work or go out and play.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
