Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon

Fridays I go painting in the Louvre.
I’m bound to be proposing on a Saturday night
There he goes again.
I’ll be lazing on a Sunday lazing on a Sunday
Lazing on a Sunday afternoon………………Freddie Mercury

When I got dressed this morning, that song popped into my head. After battling ghost prims last night, I felt I deserved a good lazy day. For you non-lazers out there, lazing is not something you can just do on a whim. It’s an art form and requires mental discipline and proper clothing and equipment. First, you must discipline your mind to ignore unsorted mail, clothes wrinkling in the dryer, cat hair on the carpet and other distractions from a good laze. For equipment, you need some snacks and out of the can food so you can get in and out of the kitchen in two minutes or less – lest you slip and put away some dry dishes or wipe down the counter. Most importantly, you need the right clothes. Comfy, non-binding clothing that let’s you loll around on the couch, the floor, the grass, whither you wander. More importantly, the clothing cannot be too bright and cheery – bright and cheery colors pep you up and pep and lazing are incompatible. Not everyone can do it, but if you approach it with discipline, the proper uniform and a good mental attitude, you too could be lazing on a Sunday afternoon.

Today I wore a comfy, soft cotton cami from Celestial Studios, white shorts with NO BELT (no binding) from Armidi, a loose cropped denim jacket from Ce Cubic, socks from Maitreya and Chucks from Akeyo. All meet the non-binding comfy requirements and are soft, muted, lazing colors, in other words, an ideal lazing uniform. To add some color, I wore the muted Jelly Tots silver jewelry set from Fresh Baked Goods. Incidentally, this is perfect lazing jewelry. You can touch it and the colored jelly tots scramble the colors. If you lack the mental discipline to ignore dust, laundry and dishes without assistance, scrambling the dots on the necklace will assist you in diverting your mind to proper lazing activities.
