Ten things I do when I’m alone

1. Belch a lot
2. Talk to myself and the cat interchangeably
3. Listen to incredibly cheesy guilty pleasure music on repeat
4. Eat macaroni & cheese
5. Drink a whole bottle of wine and mumble to myself
6. Chase the cat around the house
7. Invent new recipes in the kitchen and often flush them down the sink
8. Spiral into inexplicable depression and self-hatred for hours
9. Feel an even more inexplicable nostalgia for Kansas City
10. Write and then erase what I wrote

  1. Ok, so I’ve taken your list and narrowed it down to the following and I want to know: Is it bad that I too do these things, only not just when alone but also when with others??

  2. I guess I’m already there
    1. Watch a lot of Mystery Science Theater 3000 on DVD.
    2. Narrate my actions to the cat in real time.
    3. Listen over and over to whatever song I am obsessed with at the moment (right now it’s “This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)” by the Talking Heads).
    4. Perform small acts of tidying or prettifying my apartment.
    5. Pet and nuzzle the cat.
    6. Sink into inexplicable anxiety/depression combo that makes it impossible to do anything but lie facedown on the bed with the covers over me.
    7. Write very detailed to-do lists and general commentary on my whiteboard in several colors.
    8. Look online at food containers, cabinetry, and other storage-related housewares because thinking about buying these things gives me a sense of control over my life.
    9. Drink lots of coffee.
    10. Try really hard to write, often with some success.
