Point of View

Eager to destroy the vile grass that has invaded his homeworld, Lawnicus Mowerius prepares for battle.

Now that I'm doing less work at work, and feeling quite useless, I am starting to have a different point of view on things, which hardworking CEOs might find to be akin to laziness.

I am the farthest thing from a lazy person. Ask the stairs I use. Ask the weeds I pull. Ask the dust particles that have snuck their way inside the tiniest crack on my model of Deep Space Nine... Nevermind that last one.

I can't sit still. If Suz and I are relaxing on the patio with tasty drinks, within minutes I've pulled the lawnmower out. And if she pointed out that the lawn didn't need cutting, I'd pull out the old Turtle Wax and start doing a 'Karate Kid' on the mower.

The lawnmower wants to cut the lawn. It's its reason for being. If it's sitting idle, its design and engineering are useless and pointless.

I want to work, but I'm on doctor's orders to steer clear of keyboards until my surgical consult in August. But with the combination of a heavy dose of CTS and searing burning in my feet, I am being forced to take a break.

And I hate it. I don't want people to think I'm lazy, but at the same time, I've decided that I don't care if they do. There IS a difference between relaxing and being lazy. And I will never fall into the category of the latter.

Chilling is chilling, that's not being lazy. Screw what people say as long as you are having fun. =)

i'd love to have more time to be lazy, but certainly not at the cost of awful pain. but deep down inside, my goal is sort of like the guy in office space who decided he just didn't want to do anything and had a good time doing it. or not doing it, depending on how you look at the situation.

I'd write a witty comment in reply to your comments, but I'm just too, well, you know.

My friend has Tendonitis in her wrists/hands/arms and even though she's at work every single day, she's still getting crap! It's ridiculous! I hope you feel better soon!!!

Sometimes the cure is worse than the ailment. You will just have to suffer through "chillin' on the patio in nice weather" until your doctor says otherwise. I'd get him to write it on a script pad though.

I don't like it when people think I'm lazy either, but then again, I don't really do anything to make them think otherwise. :P

Being lazy can be fun sometimes :)

"lazy" is a relative term, a judgemental analysis and irrelevant. how do you like them apples?

How can I get a prescription for more time in my hammock?? As for the lawnmower you need to drown out its siren song with some good music.
