Sunday, June 15
 
You know, I evaluate every day of the weekend by what I accomplish.
I think of myself as a lazy good-for-nothing that wastes all his time. So, to push myself out of that default state of slobbishness I sit around and worry if I'm being productive enough every Saturday and Sunday.
Take yesterday, a lovely day for the lazing. And I would say I was pretty lazy that day. But if I tick off my activities for the day, it's pretty fricking full.
I did the dishes, baked zucchini bread, downloaded five of the ten remaining Prom songs, edited the list down to 80 (not that list, pervert), bought Mix-Meister, watched Snatch, took a five-mile bikeride, and discussed Prom logistics with the Joneses, I don't think I came out too badly when I think of it. But if you'd asked me I would have been upset I didn't get more done.
So, I'm a little crazy. Of course, you all know that already.

More stuff on my mind:

1. When did Denny's East End become a hangout for the teenies?

2. If some nice pretty girl were to mysteriously stop by at my house, I think she would totally get the wrong idea about me from the music blasting from the PC. It's not for me, I swear!

3. While discussing the hilarious yakity-sax cat video mentioned yesterday with Velveteen, we naturally got talking a bit about Benny Hill. You know, both our dad's love Benny Hill, and I wouldn't be surprised if some of yours do, too. It made me realize that there's a, say, 50-50 chance that our kids will think of Monty Python the way we think of Benny Hill. I mean, I'll get my kids a DVD of Dead Parrot Sketch Not Included and they'll humor me at the Christmas morning but then put the thing away and occasionally get weirded out that I got them that musty boring stuff that really isn't even funny. Things like that give me the shakes.

4. My zucchini bread was sort of a disaster, I didn't hear the timer go off and it's a mite crunchy. It still tastes good, but the crust is much more literally an exoskeleton. I will try to rectify the situation this afternoon by baking another loaf with my leftover zucchini.
