Bored Beyond Belief

There is not much to do here at this hotel and I was just tired and lazy enough to not want to go out and do anything either after work today. And so I find myself in one of those moods where I just don’t know what to do with myself.

I watched an episode of Donny Deutch’s show on CNBC where he did an hour long interview with Billy Joel, and that was interesting. I thought about going to the hotel restaurant for dinner, but nothing on the menu looks good. Instead, I went out and found a chicken salad sandwich and that wasn’t too bad.

I did manage to get in some writing–about 800 more words of “Blind Date”. If all goes well, I should finish it up tomorrow.

I feel like reading now, but I also feeling like listening to some Billy Joel and I can’t do both at the same time. That’s okay, however, because I am also tired and the best option at this time of night, and this level of boredom is to just go to sleep, so that’s what I’m going to do.
