Wonderduck - Similar To An Octopus

Remember back when I was employment-bereft (...and would you look at that?  It's been three years since I announced my status to The Pond!  Time flies...) I would sometimes spend entire weeks without leaving Pond Central?  Hermitdom suited me in many ways, mostly the "lazy bum" way.  Shortly before I was plucked from the ranks of the jobless, I found a cartoon that described my state of mind perfectly:

I mention this because some vestige of those days still remains within me.  That is, when I return to Pond Central after work on Fridays, it's quite common for me to not leave again until I have to go back to work on Monday.  Sometimes I don't even open the door to the outside world for the entire weekend.

As I briefly mentioned in my last so-called "post", I had myself a little three-day weekend, but something interesting occurred today.  I went out.  I went out!  In public and everything!  I went out to lunch with the folks, then came right back to Pond Central, elapsed time less than two hours, but I was outside.
Yes, very much like that, including all the controllers and the band... and I'd like to thank Pond Scum member Mauser for mentioning Public Service Broadcasting over at Brickmuppet's place.  Instant fan here.

When your life appears to not have much in the way of big triumphs, you take the little ones with enthusiasm, y'know?

1 Yeah, we're having a long run of beautiful weather here in the northwest, but I too barely venture forth on the weekend, if you count grilling a burger on the deck as venturing forth.

2 I found where I first posted the vid on my blog, but it doesn't help me figure out where I found it first.

Annoyingly, the album link is Regional Copyright Blocked, but it's probably been reposted by someone elsewhere.

3 We introverts need our recharging time. Alone and Lonely are not synonymous.

4 While I do look forward to retirement and not having to go anywhere I don't want to, I do worry about becoming as housebound as Steven was.
