That I should be doing something productive. I am a great procrastinator. Imagine if I used all the time I spend idling for some useful purpose. The thoughts don’t always encourage me to go and work though.

Renovations, me and the house, but I can’t afford the house! and my garden to come.

All sorts of random stuff, including but not limited to:

- The optimal weapons loadout for BattleTech:Firestorm
– What I want for dinner
– Clips from The Daily Show
– “Are hard-core Conservatives, crazy, stupid, misguided, or merely suicidally optimistic?”
– My own mortality
– “My balls itch!”
– Cats are strange little creatures

That is just a sampling of what ran through my head in teh last few minutes. Now, extrapolate that randomness and diversity over the 18 hours (on average) I am awake each day and you can guess what sort of chaotic place the inside of my head is.

Most of my idle time is spent trying to arrange priorities for completing the many tasks I would like to accomplish.

How I miss being close and intimate with my SO.

I want to cuddle, dammit.

How much money do I have this month to splurge.

Think about masturbating.

The thoughts that come to me most often during periods of quiet involve the steps I will take to insure my beloved wife is well cared-for after I die, and what steps I might take that will help my grandchildren thrive after I am gone.

Economic collapse.
Environmental collapse/apocalypse.
Whether or not I could survive the Zombpocalypse.
More food.
What I can build out of spare parts or various other junk.

“I really need some new clothes”
“Where’d my dog go?!”
“Must listen to music!”
“Damn it! I need help on Bioshock!”
“Sex….need sex….”
“Shut up….shut up….focus!”
“Hum…hum I wonder if I’m psychic….”
Haha those are my random thoughts :P
