What to do with all of this free time when the good TV is on hiatus…………………….

I feel like I am in a reality show/melodramatic sitcom limbo where I am without outlet for all of my evening feelings.

What do those with lives do in the evenings?

I tried Cloroxing some stuff and I followed Felix (my Roomba) around for a while. I called my mom and talked her ear off for a half hour. I stared at my massive pores for a bit and daydreamed of what a button nose would look like on my face. I’d like to take a walk but I live in Antarctica and Topanga can barely make it to the mailbox without wheezing. The book I’m reading has bored me to tears so I can barely get through three pages a day, but I am not a quitter!!!!!! I have simply run out of activities.

    Try online shopping for false noses (affordable) so that you can try them on and see if button really would change your life to the good. If they don’t make try-on noses then this is a gap in the market and could be your fortune … then you can online shop for anything you want with no holds barred. Or employ someone to shop for you. The world would be your oyster. This is my wisdom and I am sage. Really. I am ….

    Anyone ever tell you that you are super talented? And I’m not even talking about your cooking as that’s a given. By the way, tacos are always the right answer.
