Borklog: One entry

26 February 2003

indrectly from Billings, Is Boredom bad?. Billings asks "Does being bored mean you're boring, or is it just the world around you?" Maybe neither. I know folks who are bored pretty often, but they themselves are very interesting people. I know I (and the Spousal Overunit) are rarely, if ever, bored. We just have too much stuff on our plate to do, and the occasional down time of just sitting in a chair with a cat is time to enjoyed. We also don't have our TV hooked up to the outside world, so we don't have the constant stimulation of television and television commercials, which also has the nice side effect of not being barraged with advertisements aimed at making us dissatisfied with our current level of consumer consumption.
