Everyday Life by Lincøln

September 22nd, 2008 1:18 AM / Location: 34.251388,-118.3570

INSTRUCTIONS: Don't go to work. Don't go to school.

So after a marvelous bonfire to celebrate Insatiability and to kick off Everyday Life, I went back to my theater to enjoy theater entertainment. At just after midnight I saw that there was one task to do, and it was to not go to work or school. OK, school's no problem as I haven't been to one of those in quite some time. But work was going to be another issue, as I was scheduled to work on Sunday. I had put up Christmas Lights (like I do) at somebody's house last Thursday for a wedding on Saturday. I was supposed to take them down on Sunday. Oops.

So I decided that I would do everything in my power to spend Sunday doing as little work as possible. After hanging out and socializing at the theater for quite some time, Lank and I went to get a burrito at the greatest burrito joint ever, El Gran Burrito. Then after getting a ride home, I promptly fell asleep. I was awoken the next morning at 10:31 (fairly early for somebody who went to bed pretty close to sunrise) with a phone call from Peter Garnett. See, he was worried about me because he had a dream that I had a terminal illness and was in the hospital, and he had to call to make sure. I was not in the hospital (this time), so he wished me a good day and I started my day of doing not much.

I spent most of the day watching youtube videos and fucking off on the interwebs (after "calling in sick" for the light takedown gig I was supposed to do). I should point out that I haven't been to school in well over ten years, and I work very rarely (when it's not light season), and I don't have a job, but I will on occasion take the odd handy man job that comes my way, but those are rare. I have been doing some landscaping lately, but we don't have any clients (right now), and I do a lot of charity work, but have little of that going on in my life right now, so to have a day that I had to go to work, and that that day fell on the first day of the era when the only task available was to not go to work is pretty amazing. And fortuitous. So I felt good about completing this task. I also went as far out of my way to not do anything that even remotely looked or felt like work at all. I decided not to write anything, because that felt a little too much like work (being a playwright). I put on a baseball video game and put both players to computer and let it play itself and watched it like a real game. The only thing I did that was remarkable or noteworthy was I took a luxurious hour long bath.

I also talked a little bit on the Skype™ machine, but it got in the way of me watching TV shows on the interwebs, so I didn't really pay much attention most of the day. But I did catch up on last year's Heroes and Sarah Connor Chronicles and Fringe.

I know this isn't a terribly exciting praxis, especially as a first praxis of the era, but the task demands (to me at least) a certain amount of guh. It's hard after all to document not doing something. Which is what this task demands. Sure you could overcompensate and show the inverse (as I tend to do for tasks, but this is Everyday Life, I wanna kick it off with a true slice of my everyday life), like all of the amazing stuff that happened that wasn't going to work, but I decided to do it this this way.

At the end of the night, our sign/logo/heart/badge goes into the flames in a celebratory manner.

I am pleased to see that the vastly powerful new features SSI have been labouring over, such as locations for every picture in a submission, varied strengths of votes, earning the ability to vote, and an exciting new task list have all taken second fiddle to the power of TERMS. Well done SFØ, you have made the internet proud.

Oh man. That last pic is dangerously close to showing just a bit too much.

Well, this praxis only has one term associated with it (thanks Sam)...
