It’s Pie Chart Friday, but more importantly, it’s Friday. After an absolutely insane work week, I am all fired up to do apparently nothing tonight. I guess I should be at that age where not having something to do on a Friday night doesn’t get my panties in a bundle but my panties are bundled—end scene. Thankfully, I am mostly past the age where these situations spark a dramatic lamentation over my absent social life, although come to think of it … no, nevermind.
I tend to be creative and can usually have a pretty good time by myself so I’ll approach this evening with that attitude. Besides, there are a ton of stay-at-home things to do on a Friday night: the Friday night Lifetime Original Network Movie; Law & Order re-runs on at least two channels (one showing SVU, the other Criminal Intent); Criminal Minds re-runs starting at 8 p.m.; Comcast’s OnDemand selection of free movies which includes Species 1, 2, 3, and 4; half-assed Pilates on a yoga mat in front of the TV; the obligatory once-a-month clean; the more thorough I’m-trying-to-keep-occupied rearranging of all your hard copy photos from the last two decades; reorganizing the closet and shoe collection by color this time, including a pathetic attempt to give away items; and myriad other activities that I’m sure exist but that I’ve never had to think of because I’m usually not at home on a Friday night.
Back to thinking positively—a new trick I am trying out after reading about its benefits in Oprah’s monthly magazine O—there are a few things that I can look forward to on my Friday-night in.
Jealous? Probably not but Happy Pie Chart Friday anyway!
