Break out of your routine. Do something different this weekend.
Here are some suggestions culled from the blogosphere...
1. The author of Outer Life recommends that you should plan a vacation to a country that could be a "back-up" should you ever need to leave your current country of residence for any reason. He's dead serious. When he's on vacation he doesn't "do sightseeing" and he doesn't like "meeting new people."
Partly this is because I am not a meet-new-people kind of person, but mostly it’s because my view is that people are pretty much the same wherever you go, so if you really want to meet someone new, walk down your street and introduce yourself to the people you meet there. You don’t need to travel halfway around the world to do that.
This anonymous author is the best blogger I have found at documenting the inner life of the "grumpy old guy" persona. Better than me, even. Damn him.
2. The author of my2fish makes a somewhat adventurous suggestion: swim until you can't see land. Yikes. It's a bit cold for that around here right now but it might be fun (if not a bit foolish) on a hot summer's day. Actually, as I always take off my glasses when I swim and I'm as blind as a bat without them, it's not a very difficult feat for me to achieve.
3. My third suggestion for your weekend fun is the most outrageous of all. Make friends with a jet skier! Come on. This guy can't be serious. Can he?
So which one are you going to choose this weekend? Or are you planning something even weirder?
