I'd think up my own definition but I'm too lazy to do so.

jenn said...

Laziness is my favourite word for it leads to naps. I coulda been first but I'm too lazy.

quilly said...

I want the time to indulge in laziness! There is always something waiting to be done that just won't wait!

Tom & Icy said...

Laziness and procrastination. Great labor saving techniques.

Mo'a said...

Later...I am too Lazy to....

Hobbes said...

For persons of high degree the term is "life of leisure," a warranted repose that stimulates the economy with consumption of comfort-inducing goods and services.

actonbell said...

lazy--please don't get me started. (I'm tired, really)

Nessa said...

Perfect update, Doug.

I like laziness. It calls my name.

Jim said...

Laziness: I might like to while a little while away some time soon.
But right now I'm just too busy.

I'm still thinking about the judges. Is it rehabilitation you're hinting at?

And I haven't been hearing much about Willie lately? Is he ok?
Adi is on five of my YouTube pages.

Indie, that's why I keep a mirror handy.

Jenn, have a nap then.

Quilly, laziness is one of the four freedoms. Like soap-making.

Icy, they work together with microwave ovens well, don't they?

Mo'a, understood. Sculpt?

Hobbes, for executives it's called "work."

Actonbell, take the rest of the week off.

Nessa, I should have put my picture by the definition.

Jim, the idea was that judges are criminals. Willie's pretty well, thanks for asking. The old injured hip kind of puts him through changes when it rains. Actually, he and Walela are in the office with me today.

Lazyness is next to godliness.

Jamie Dawn said...

Laziness: When the laundry needs doin' jest turn yer undershorts inside out, and yer good to go!!

(You were lazy yesterdee mornin', if my recollection is recallin' correctly.)

Minka said...

laziness, n. it just means you started being efficient way too early in life

Omnipotent Poobah said...

I always thought, "person of low degree" was a compliment.

Kyahgirl said...

Doug, I think your update is perfect.
It really leaves laziness as the only sensible path for a person of good moral fibre!

tsduff said...

Laziness is what causes me to comment so late every day. I think it's just my lazy brain... is there help?

cooper said...

laziness: It's always been my excuse, so I like the word. In a confessional I'd have to admit that when I say "I'm too lazy" it just means I'd rather be doing something else.

Doug said...

The big nap, G.

True, Jamie Dawn, but if my drawers were inside out it was from obliviousness.

Exactly right, Minka. You have to get an early start on being a late bloomer.

Poobah, I always hoped so.

Kyah, you think we should start a religion?

Terry, learn to speak first, think later.

Cooper, somehow I find the idea that you fake distraction hysterical and totally you.

Minka said...

Right, I have high hopes to bloom at some point in the later future. If it weren't for paper cuts and sharp scissors, I'd be an origamist by now.

Doug said...

ORIGAMIST, n. The judge, jury and executioner of petty cranes.

puppybrose said...
