at the end of the phantom tollbooth, milo thinks about taking another trip away from his life and reasons to himself: "Well I would like to make another trip," Milo thinks, "but I really don't know when I'll have the time. There's just so much to do right here."

that is how i feel, it's why i don't "go out". "pissing your life away," i think were my sister's words - ahem. i stay at home because there is so much to do right here. now, there may not be a lot of things i do, but there are lots of things to write about - and when i am not writing i can be in my pool and exercising. i'm interested in what i do and that's why i rarely find time to "go out" or even do anything requiring a schedule.

the book begins with "There was once a boy named Milo who didn't know what to do with himself not just sometimes but always". that's how i was...now i don't know what to do with myself, but it's not long before i find something.

like my parody of "i touch myself," i can say that "i psyche myself".
