There are many productive things one could do with one's free time. Wash the dishes, pay the bills, get the taxes done, write/paint/crochet/whittle something.
There are also those busywork things one could do, such as organize the CD collection (alphabetically by artist or title?), re-arrange the furniture, clean out the junk drawer. I could spend half a day just cleaning out and arranging all the makeup and toiletries I have collected and then stashed away in drawers and in boxes under the sink.
Then there are the silly things. For example, this person has created an interesting menagerie - from stockings and other things one can find around the home (apparently this person was into sports - I'm still trying to figure out what I'd use for elephant ears since I don't have any tennis racquet covers around here). Best I ever did along those lines was put cellophane tape over my nose and make it look snoutish.
Ever draw two eyes on the side of your hand just above your thumb (and maybe some lips) and create a little hand puppet right on your hand? Some of you are probably old enough to remember Senor Wences...anyway someone has taken this to a new height and created some lovely "Hand Painting Art" I love the giraffe and the painstaking detail on the alligator!
Well, that's what I've been doing this evening - web surfing and sniffling (yeah, the cold is still with me but I'm getting better. Just really lethargic.) I leave you with The Daily Kitten
