What's the most interesting thing you've done today?

I bought a rucksack from Milletts. £12.99. Looks OK. It lacks some of the zipped pockets that make some rucksacks special though.

I'm bored.

I chanted a Buddhist mantra for 40 minutes or so this morning. That was pretty interesting. Bought some coffee from a Portuguese deli. That was not uninteresting. Bought milk and a copy of today's Independent (because they're giving away DVD's of a Bunuel movie) from Tesco's. That was boring.
Watched Velvet Underground video footage on this Forum. That was very thought provoking. Now I may well have to listen to "Unripened" - the bootleg of the acetate of the Velvets "Banana" album.

Oh God, listening to The Velvets whilst reading the Independent. I'm such a middle-class, white, 47 year old woolly liberal...!

So far, the highlight of my day has been reading this thread, although I had hoped, in vain, to see a picture of Des's new rucksack. But the only other competition was cooking and ironing. As a single parent, I had thought that I might qualify for a box of chocolates for Mother's Day. But, sadly, nothing. My kids carefully explained that it doesn't work out that way and, by the way, where was their pocket money? The wee b***ards!

I had hoped to find some diversion on the news. A giant asteroid about to smash into Earth, perhaps. But the BBC newshounds seem to be urging us to get excited about (a) who will win the Russian election? (In a nailbiting finish, will it be Medvedev by a massive landslide, or will it be Medvedev by an ordinary landslide?), and (b) Prince Harry has come back to Britain after we didn't realise or care that he'd been away in the first place. Hurrah! The BBC breathlessly tells us that Harry claims he's no hero, while hinting that's just the sort of thing a hero says.

Roll on Monday morning....

This is interesting.

I got up early & it was 19 degrees outside, with snow still on the ground. I went for a walk at the lake and on the way home, I bought some Claritin for allergies & a Pepperment Patty candy bar.

got up, cooked waffles while eating the box of chocolates that my mom got me for Vday (no shame). Drove behind my son and our friend who went out biking in search of new bike trails, came in to the office to get all the w2s and bankstatements that I've been collecting in manila folders. About to go now to do my taxes, but BEFORE I DO THAT, I am going to watch that VU clip!!

you should have asked me what the most interesting things I did on Fri and Sat. as that involved either playing sax. while keeping watch of traffic, or DJing 80s night for some teenagers. Oh, but the MOST interesting thing I'll do tonight, god willing, is have sex.

Thank you , now where do i collect my prize?

Finally, a topic I can confidently say I know more about than anyone else on the forum...."What I Did Today"....but it has already fizzled out.

Now I guess you'll never know about the exciting life of being a dad in rural Japan.

It's probably best kept as a tantalising mystery.

But thanks for caring!

I went out for my walk at the lake, & it is very nice weather. Warm & windy.

Usually you can expect people out walking their dogs. But today there was a lady walking her goat! It was a white shaggy goat with a collar around its neck & a leash! there was another lady walking along side.
