It’s a sunny day here in Vancouver. Apparently I’m suppose to get out and enjoy it. I don’t see what’s so great about being hot, sweaty and uncomfortable though. When it’s hot and sunny, everyone wants to go somewhere but all they ever do is look for a shaded area and a cold drink.
Fine, whatever, I’ll try this ‘seize the day’ shit for a bit. I drove by a yard sale and thought of the idea to go yard sale shopping. There’s loads of them being advertised on Craigslist so I went to a few. The items displayed at yard sales are very similar to those at a thrift store. It’s mostly old stuff that most people wouldn’t want. The business model is, ‘you never know.’ It’s actually worse than a thrift store because there’s no quality control at all. People will try to sell their 20 year old smelly boots.
One thing I found a bit interesting was an older guy buying VHS movies. It was only interesting because I forgot that there might be some people who still watch VHS videos. I guess I would still watch VHS movies if I had a VHS and couldn’t or didn’t want to download off the internet.
I bought a pot for $2. There’s no reason to spend $10 on a brand new one. When the apocalypse comes I can use it as a helmet after I boil my can of beans.
Seizing the day gets kind of tiring especially when there’s nowhere very stimulating to go. Getting back into the car after it has been sitting there for a few minutes in the sun gets annoying when you’re doing it every 10 minutes. All that hot air gets trapped and the seats start to burn. But it’s worth it right?
With the sun being out it gives me the chance to even out my tan. My job requires me to be outside all day wearing a t-shirt which gives me this..
And summer hasn’t even started! I get the chance to even out my tan but it doesn’t mean that I will. Sitting or laying out under the sun for the purpose of getting a tan is torturous. It’s not just hot but it’s also boring as hell.
So ya, I hate how I’m supposed to feel like a loser for not getting out in the sunshine as much as possible. There’s always a few people at work who will ask,
“Did you get to enjoy the nice weather over the weekend?”
Ya, I enjoyed it at home. So what that you went to the park.
To be honest, sometimes I’d rather have it pouring rain so that I feel better about staying indoors. It’s kind of like being really sick in that you have a great excuse to stay home and watch TV.
My twin brother from another universe would like to say few things..
Summer is here! Everyone loves summer. BBQ’s, camping, beach, drinks on the patio and a chance to work on that tan. So excited! So what do you have planned for this summer? Who cares! Just get out there and enjoy the sunshine!
Hi, I’m back. A lot of women like summer because it gives them an excuse to dress sluttier. A lot of guys like summer because more women dress sluttier.
I’ll enjoy the good weather by opening a window and swallowing some vitamin D pills.
