couch potato

forget television; laptop laziness is the new theme around here.

unfortunately, my furniture, electrical outlets, and general apartment layout are all conspiring against me in regards to finding a practical place to park the new distraction. the perfect outlet is, of course, wired to the light switch which controls my main lamp in the living room. so unless i want to leave my lights on all day [no], or start turning the lamp on and off manually [no!], that's out. for now i'll just let it charge through the outlet on the other side of the room and pray i don't trip over the power cord on the way to the kitchen one of these groggy mornings and drag the whole thing crashing down from the coffee table.

laptop bag has been ordered and i am certain that it will arrive next monday, after i am out of town for the week. come on, united parcel service, i dare you to surprise me! i'd like this before i take my little vacation!

nice bag! you know, you have a friend that could probably set you up with an outlet...

after he helps you with your car door handle, anyway. :)

That bag is very you.
The ultimate laziness is when you find yourself "watching" TV and doodling on your laptop at the same time ;)

Does this mean you will need to go shoe shopping so you can have a pair to match the new bag?

I thought tripping over power cords was a thing of the past. http://images.apple.com/macbook/images/design_cordanim20061108.gif

The perfect outlet for my laptop is right next to my bed. And the perfect spot for my TV is on my dresser, just at eye-level as I lounge in my bed. And the perfect spot for my remote is on the stand next to my bed. I also often find myself doing both at once.

I know the experts advise insomniacs like yours truly to reserve bed for sleeping only, but I can't help that the layout of my apartment conspires against me.
