I can do stuff such as saw metal, engrave glass, grind and polish gemstones; all while watching and listening to a movie.
I can generally get the plot line of a movie while listening; I don't have to keep my eyes glued to the screen all the time.
The one thing that I have yet to master (and give me time) is to sing and dance with Julie Andrews in the Sound Of Music while welding without burning my finger off
I am creative. I create artistic clothing and jewelry.
I also use slashdot.
Right now, I am welding together a necklace. I am on slashdot now because I have to let the welds cool down so that I can move the work and then weld another section. If I don't wait for the weld to cool down, I will burn my finger off. And that means 'ouch' and a trip to the emergency room.
So, I use slashdot to kill time until my weld cools off and I can move the work for my next weld.
Well, I guess it's cooled off enough now, so bye bye slashdot.
I have been to house concerts here in Portland, Oregon and they are **far** different that what is alleged here
One house concert was a string quartet in somone's living room that started at 7 PM and ended at 9 PM. You could not hear anything from outside.
The other house concert was a small chorus (un-amplified) with a baby grand piano. It was also in a living room. And you could not even hear it from the front walkway of the home, let alone the neighbors. It was over at about 9:30 PM
The third house concert was a Christmas carol sing along where the family invited many of the neighbors over dessert and singing. It ran from about 8 PM to 10 PM. You could barely hear anything from the front walkway.
And Boston wants to ban these?????
What do you define as work?
Charlie Brown calls work the crab grass of life.
I happen to enjoy what I am doing. I love to solve problems and clean up other people's messes. It gives me a great ego boost.
When I am done with that, I then do more of what you call work to creat my artistic jewelry and clothing.
First thing; they have got to get off the darn donuts!
I just got royally chewed out big time by my doctor to stay off of donuts from now on because of my high LDL.
I have never been reamed out like this before. He told me that I was killing myself by eating donuts!
I suggest that if they stop eating donuts, they just might get more energy to do more than just sit around.
