The Pros and Cons

Saturday, February 16, 2008
One of the greatest things about being a self-sufficient adult with a day job that doesn't usually involve weekend work and your own sweet home is that there is no one who can tell you that it's a poor use of time to sit on the couch all Saturday afternoon, eating peanut butter toast and watching season one of How I Met Your Mother.

On the otherside of the equation, however, is the fact that the only person who can tell you to get your ass off the couch because you get two days off a week to do useful things like laundry, dusting, grocery shopping, bill paying, cleaning and seizing your freedom for 48 blissful hours-

is yourself.

So conflicted.

Hand me the remote, would you?

Season One was good, but it pales in comparison to any season where there is the ever looming presence of the Slap Bet.
to the point where holding a new Slap Bet party is something sacred.
