Sometimes, it's the stupid things.
Like the other night. Chris was away for work, so, after a fairly productive day, I tucked in with some sausage-and-bean stew I had made in the slow cooker, and settled in to watch a DVD.
What did I watch? Roughnecks: The Starship Troopers Chronicles. That's right, a poorly-animated cartoon based on a cheesy movie. But the writing is surprisingly strong (its pedigree overlaps with that of Gargoyles), and it was just good mindless relaxation.
I know, I'm "supposed" to spend my evenings doing semi-productive work, like reading or knitting or, I don't know, clipping coupons. But this was just pleasant. And sometimes, don't you want "just pleasant"?
