What Should I Do Today?

I may have mentioned that I'm off this summer, and it's pretty sweet, but I got kind of used to not having as much free time this winter, so now that I have lots of it I have all kinds of projects I want to get done, and I don't know what I'm in the mood for today.

My choices:
a) Put together my quilt.
b) Sew up a pillow for the little batch of circles I sewed together that my mom had made which she never made into anything which I found out are called yo-yos:











c) Sew up the pieces of the gingham top I cut out the other day.
d) Finish throwing a bunch of crap out from the attic.
e) Bitch-blog about the asshole who ruined a perfectly good time at the dog beach yesterday.
f) Go back to sleep.
g) Read one of the dozen books I planned to read this summer.
h) Wash my hair. (Longtime bert readers, you know this is letter h for a reason.)
i) Dick around on the internets for a while longer just to make sure I know where Rosie and Elisabeth stand today.
j) Write 200 more haikus so I can finally catch up on my myspace promise.
k) Um, start a new story?

Start a new story! My reasoning is selfish, of course, because I enjoy reading your stories.

(I decided that this was as good a time as any to make my first comment on your blog, even though I've been reading it semi-regularly for many months now. I swear I'm not a stalker...)

I think you should spend the whole day on the internet stalking Rosie O'Donnell.

Why limit your celebrity stalking to the internet? Sounds to me like you need to get out of the house and take a road trip.

You know what's kinda adorable? The look on a famous person's face when they open their curtains and realize that some stranger is camped outside and appears to be spelling "The voices in my head think we should get married" on their front lawn with rose petals and butter knives.

Hi Greg! Nice to see you here. I hope life is treating you well, and that you're writing.
Because I know you're all eager to know, I finished my yo yo pillow, which is adorable, I read half of a great book, and I worked on my quilt a bit too. I did no stalking whatsoever. But when I do, Eric, I'll take your advice... who could resist an effort like that indeed? Stalking is so misunderstood...

Ooh, a fellow quilter! I haven't yet gotten up the nerve to work with yo-yos... my efforts at sewing anything in a circle have thus far proven worthless.

How about:

Go back to bed for a few days so when you wake up, you can give me a sleep transfusion.

Then you can go about your writing and crafting with a clear conscience, for you have done your charitable act of the summer.

Everybody wins!

I was bored today. That was me who left the message BETSY'S PURE GOLD spelled out on your lawn in goldfish. Please put them in water when you are done admiring the message. I like the hat you wore today when you looked out your window.
