Hello, Fluffsters! Happy Monday!
Well, I’m not sure about you, but I had a fantastic time last night.
In answer to the unspoken question (for this is, after all, a blog) no, I did not watch the Super Bowl. And from what I’ve heard, it seems as though you might wish you hadn’t either. I’ve heard it described to me as though “if both of the teams had shown up to play, it would have been a better game.”
Oh. That was a bit confusing, wasn’t it?
Basically, I’ve heard it said that one of the teams played so badly, it was as though they never fully showed up to play the game.
Yes. So, in honor of the game probably leaving you wishing to have done something else, I’m going to share with you some things that you might have actually enjoyed doing. Some of these might even have been things I did. You know, just to make you jealous. 🙂
…Did you seriously just use a “Smiley”?
Yes. Yes I did.
What can I say? It fit. But that’s a change of topic. Again. Ok, no more delays!
Things you wish you’d done instead of watching the “Super” Bowl
A) Take a nice, long, relaxing shower. Of course, that only takes up part of the time of the super bowl, in all probability, so you’ll want to combine this with other items from the list.
If you don’t need to combine this with other activities, even I’m a bit concerned for you…
2) Have a nice long dinner / lunch / meal with friends / family. As with the previous one, this might not take you the full time, and should probably be combined with other activities. Maybe you could take a long shower, and then have a nice meal with friends or family?
Ooh, I’ve got a better one:
3) Prove that if 1 > 0, then if x > 1, and n is a positive integer x^(1/n) > 1, Assuming that laws of exponents work. Also, you might want to prove that 1^(1/n) = 1, for any positive integer 1.
…Uh… I don’t know if I even know what that means.
3b) Try to figure out what 3 even means.
Are you happy now?
Uh, not necessarily about that.
Speaking of “happy”, though,
5) Polka through the halls. There are few things quite so cheerful as a nice polka! And it’s certainly got to be more fun that the “super” bowl supposedly was.
5) Discuss whether or not you even exist. Or if you’re just the figment of your imaginary friend’s imagination.
Extra kudos to you if you answer that one without using the “Cogito Ergo Sum” argument. Even more “points” if you solve that answer and present it in mathematical form.
So… Lots of mathsy stuffs from you. Have you been studying Math recently or something?
I needed some way to keep myself entertained…
So you decided to work on learning math. Of course.
Z) Watch the final episode of Sherlock, Season 3 as it came out in the United States. And, possibly, prep for it ahead of time by re-watching all the other episodes.
(If you didn’t end up re-watching all the prior episodes, you could also combine this with any of the other points on this list.)
9) Play Bananagrams. This could easily take you the entire game time!
Last) Research Kant’s perspective on virtue and ethics, and its impact on the world. Maybe also write an essay on the subject. After all, football always seems to take an impossibly long time- you might be able to write an essay in the time it takes for the first quarter!
So, Fluffsters, feeling regretful yet? And any bets on which ones I actually did last night?
And don’t forget, if you’re trying to procrastinate, this list (mostly) works for that, too! I hope you enjoy trying (some of) these suggestions!
