Slacker Day - cellophane — LiveJournal
the story of an invisible girl
Slacker Day
Most productive thing I've done so far this weekend: I made a new icon. It's SuperDuke! Pretty fun...although I'm not convinced that I like his cape. I re-did it several times. Drawing capes is not my specialty. Still, I like him anyway.

I took yesterday off. Literally, I took the day off from everything. I was a total slacker; it was lovely. I spent most of the day in my jammies, reading. I finished my first Palm-book (Black Ice, by Michael Connelly). I watched some television. I slept. I cuddled with my cats.

I didn't even leave the house until about 6pm, when I put on some shorts and sandals and went for Mexican takeout. (I had to. A lot of the book took place in Mexico, and they were eating Mexican food all the time, making me hungry!) I left my jammie shirt on, and I didn't put on a bra (ooh, so scandalous). But really, so what? At least I brushed my hair -- I almost didn't. Hee!

Much later that evening I went on a walk to 7-11 for ice cream. Yep, still wearing the same clothes, with the addition of a denim jacket. After I came home I did a few knee-exercises. But I couldn't do anything too bouncy because, by that time, I felt it would be the ruin of a great thing to put a bra on at the end of the day. (Note to any disappointed guys reading this last sentence: I realize that some guys really like braless bounciness, but too much bounciness is actually uncomfortable and somwhat painful. So deal.) Anyway, hooray for slackerdom! It was a really good break from the world.

Today has started out much the same, but I'm about to go out and try to be productive. I'm going to Home Depot, then my parents' house, and hopefully in those places I'll amass the right equipment to get some stuff done around and outside my house. Goals for today and tomorrow:
install dimmer switch in dining room
fix porch light (again)
trim hedge!!! (it is literally taking over my backyard)
mow lawn
do laundry
deposit fsa check
go through bills and such

umm....I know there were others. I'll have to update this list if/when I remember them.

Tonight I'm hopefully playing Euchre with the girls. Much yayness. (:

Renni El,

Glad to see that the Kryptonite that weakened your knee is wearing off ... I'm looking forward to taking you out for some longer walks!

do you feel more self-conscious without one?

Well personally I feel way more self-conscious when I am wearing one.

I don't have any photographic evidence to back this up, but you're pretty much a spitting image of me. Well, apart from the fact that you have more hair ::lol::

But still. Pretty frightening...

You lucky bastard!

I know, really !! The stars were properly aligned or something ::lol::

I feel more self-conscious if I'm walking around, moving enough that I think it'll show. It doesn't bother me at all when I just sitting or standing.

As far as when people look....it kind of depends on the person and the "creepiness factor" how much it bothers me. So it's hard to say. I don't mind a glance or two, but blatent staring is rude.

Feel free to ask questions anytime!

aahh, what a lovely way to spend the day! I was quite lazy yesterday as well, but it was due to the fact that I just felt tired. I tried to shake it and couldn't, so I gave in. I just sat in different rooms of the house. haha.

I try to not wear a bra around the house and sometimes I will go out without one on. No biggie, I think, but I probably think that because my mom burned her bra in the 60s and hasn't worn one since. :D

Wow, I can't imagine not wearing a bra ever. At least a sports bra sometimes! But a lot of it is what you're used to. I'm small enough that I can go without, but I feel self-conscious doing so.

People sometimes stare, which can make a woman feel weird. I could never go to work or any place like that without one! It's too bad because I don't need one either. (My Grandma insisted that I would some day get my boobs, but I never really did, hahaha!)

...I'm small enough that I can go without...

A D-cup friend of mine in college decided to go without for an extended period of time.

It was not a good thing.

As for staring: I think it depends on what else you're wearing. Over the weekend in Chicago there were a couple of women on the street with no bra, and wearing tight, thin, white shirts. IMO, there was a big sign over their heads that said, "Look at my breasts!"

So, I did.

While I understand that the bouncy-ness factor of being energetic while bra-less can be uncomfortable, I still find it fun to look at ;)

Sounds like a nice day!

You play Eucher? Kewl.

Last weekend, I went alone on Right-Left off Ace-King Ace -- and got away with it. Har!

That's not hard to believe; you're just gambling that no three of the remaining five trump are in a single opponent's hand. If you weren't the dealer, you'd know where one of them was already.

Sweet! That's such a good feeling. (:

Next time we are together I'll have to remember that you both play euchre.
