What do you do with a B.A. in English?

Ever have one of those days where you just don’t want to do anything? When you think of what you have to get done vs your strong desire to just curl up next to someone you love with hot tea, a blanket, and a good book the latter thing wins every time. Yeah, that’s where I am today. Unfortunately, I haven’t been doing too much of that lately and the house is a mess, I have nothing to wear, and I’m falling further and further behind. So I’m sitting here, procrastinating, while the laundry is going, but at least I’ve cleaned up the kitchen and all I have left is vacuuming. My excuse for not vacuuming is that the Husband is sleeping and I don’t want to wake him. When in doubt, blame your spouse. Maybe I will bake some cookies while he sleeps in my never ending quest to find the ultimate sugar cookies.

Last night we went to see Avenue Q and loved it. I think more musicals should have puppets since puppets can say and do things, normal humans can’t on stage. Like the racist song or the porn song or have sex on stage. Let me just say, puppets, like cartoons, should not have sex. It’s breaks your brain. And I admit I wasn’t bothered by the puppet sex scene in Team America, but that may be because I wasn’t sitting next to an older gentleman in the middle of a packed theater watching two puppets get it on in various positions while Gary Coleman (not the real Gary Coleman) sang along. I wonder how many random google hits I will now have with the phrase puppet sex in this post…I imagine they will be very disappointed. Avenue Q. Hysterical. A little embarrassing to watch, but go see it.

Okay, enough procrastinating. I need to get cleaning done or something so I feel productive. Can curling up under a blanket to read or knit be considered productive? What if you have a pile of books to read or a metric ton of yarn to knit? Then could it considered being productive?

    ABSOLUTELY! :)

    Avenue Q is an amazing show! My favorites were the Bad Idea Bears! “But you’re on a budget! You’re wasting money in the long run if you don’t buy in bulk!”
