I think I'll keep my sofa, thanks.

I had a very odd day yesterday - I felt massively disassociated from everything, and completely without motivation. I always feel guilty if I'm not working on something creative, so I knitted a custom purse, and started on a silk/alpaca knitted reticule for my purple Victorian outfit (little tiny needles!), but I didn't feel particularly absorbed in either. I even had trouble focusing on watching Tropic Thunder, and that was some funny, funny stuff.

So, I sat on the sofa all day. And though this might seem like I had a downer of a day, I am deeply aware of my blissful ability to waste an entire day on the sofa, with no housekeeping, cooking (we ate warmed up lamb pasanda from our local delivery place for lunch)(yum), or household maintenance that absolutely could not wait until today. And it is this ability to sit on the sofa for an entire day (and watch Dr. Who) that cements my absolute conviction that though I would like to travel back in time for a short while just to look at stuff, there is no way in hell that I would want to spend anything longer than a weekend in the 16th century.
