Doing Nothing (except writing a blog entry)

25 October 2008

I watched the film office space again while sitting on the train between Birmingham and Nottingham for the third time on Thursday. By the third trip, my enthusiasm for train travel was flagging considerably, and it’s a good thing I had my wonderful netbook along with a few films on the hard drive.

I’d forgotten how good that film is (different from The Office, but still funny), and I had to laugh out loud at the following quote:

“Michael, I did nothing. I did absolutely nothing, and it was everything that I thought it could be”.

I have to agree that the occasional Saturday of doing absolutely nothing is quite nice. But I reckon I’d go crazy if I tried to bum around for more than that. I’d get a hobby or something, I’m sure. I suppose that’s why I’m writing this entry in the first place. Maybe I’ll go chop wood or build a house or something.

PS – ‘Learn to Fly’ by the Foo Fighters is amazing!
