Let us say you are idle, this day in September. Let us say that to the cars rushing by outside you are a stationary observer, moving backwards in their memory as they disappear. What use can be made of this time?
The deadline for my comic-coloring contest is this Sunday night; surely you can spend a few hours today in pursuit of this, a task that provides distraction from those things you are not doing anyway.
The television provider DirecTV is offering new customers a promotion; if you were considering their (perfectly adequate, in my experience as a customer for the last seven years) service, you could do worse than saving $100, in the form of ten $10 bill credits. By using my account number — 23334574 — as your referral, not only do you obtain the discount, but I am rewarded somewhat as well. This is no particular urging on my part; simply if you were contemplating the service, on this idle day, regardless.
Finally, if you enjoyed the sight of the ridiculous, entirely un-aerodynamic flying contrivance in Tuesday’s strip, and have twenty-odd minutes to spare on a break from your lack of activity, you may enjoy this remarkable and arresting short film, brought to my attention by kind Marksman Kevin S. It is embedded below; or on YouTube here.
