Extra time?

Right now, there are some conflicts between my web life, sim life and my real life. Why can't all my persona get along? They're all fighting for the same cause: 30 hour days !

Imagine what you could do with 6 extra hours each day! I know that I would:
  • spend real time with my family (by real, I mean enjoyable, not task-oriented time);
  • write a clever blog entry with real content, every day;
  • go through my reader ( I just started using Google reader; I was just a blog hopper going from one to another to another before. I had maybe 10 blogs that I really loved and never missed. I typed in their address by hand... The rest was whatever I found in the time I had. Now, with the reader, it is easier to follow stories and people but god, I've never seen so much bold numbers... Hey, I could also try to think of something to say and delurk once in a while-- now, I'm just a r.a.p.i.s.t.);
  • finish a book (I started the The Sword of Truth series recently. I'm only at book 3 ; there are 172 of them, or so. This is something that should make me happy as I hate to "leave" characters at the end of a book, movie, tv show... Once a character has a life in my head, I will follow him/her forever. Even if its vessel turns bad. So looong series are a big plus in my book but there are so many words just waiting to be read. It feels almost daunting...);
  • shake those trees and find a third piano ( Blame him. I play Animal crossing now. No, I do not why it's so addictive; I do not understand the goal of this game. Yet, I can't stop);
  • do something other than sitting on a chair ( thank god my ass still fits on a chair... but I really need to get myself moving, or else I'll get stuck...).
6 extra hours, 6 bullets. Oh, and I guess I would want some extra sleep as well... Should I aim for 36-hour days?


  1. I love it when you blame me publicly, but somehow I missed that part of the vows... Silly me. ;-)

    You should definitely aim for 36-hour days.

  2. I'm all for more hours in a day - where do I sign up?

  3. Woohoo for the Sword of Truth series. I can't wait for Lesombre to get done so I can talk about the ending of the series finally.

    Theoretically, longer days should make life easier but with my luck, it'd just be filled with more crap and I still wouldn't have time for the fun stuff.

  4. If we had longer days, I'd probably have to work longer shifts. But, I'm all for sitting on my arse and shaking trees and going fishing:)

  5. I kind of agree with you about the longer days. If you find them on Mars, send me word and I'll catch the next shuttle out.

    Today my class mates (I'm on language training) tired to tell me that I needed a life. Bahhahhhhah. Like that's going to happen soon.
