I’m watching TV and typing again, as I did last night. It means I can talk to Julia, watch TV, blog and save money on heating. And they say men can’t multi-task…
We were busy in the shop today with a combination of eBay and retail customers. We also loaded quite a lot of medallions onto eBay. However, though busy, it wasn’t the sort of day that provided much in the way of interest or insight.
Watching TV all evening has had a similar result, passing before my eyes and leaving no mark. I’ve laughed a few times, but learnt nothing and not been provoked into any thought other than “TV is really rubbish tonight.” I would like to report something more profound, but that’s as good as it gets.
Julia outdid herself tonight, producing a roast dinner as I slept in front of the fire with a quiz on TV. This is not really how I imagine the home life of a poet. I can’t imagine Byron or Wordsworth, or even Larkin or Carol Ann Duffy, snoozing in front of the TV. Well, maybe Larkin…
I might have to change my artistic ambitions away from poetry and move towards art. That way I can tell people that I’m installation art, and the snoring is meant ironically. The gravy on my shirt will also be incorporated into the work, as will a regular supply of tea, which will then become tax-deductible. If I’m going to be able to claim for tea I can probably pay a butler to serve it. It seems to have worked for Jack Vettriano.
I like the idea of you acting as a piece of installation art but I am afraid that it will won’t work, You always make sense and installation art rarely does. Also modern art is excessively overvalued and you are undervalued.
I am blushing now. Undervalued… 🙂
Saturday night TV is the pits – unless you have recorded something in the week
I really should stop watching TV and do something more useful, but it draws me in and hypnotises me…
Laurie is right, naps are good. Cats learned this long ago, and exercise the fine art of napping daily.
A cat is, to be fair, a great role model.
A little nap never hurt anyone.
🙂 I may have that put on a mug.
