Eat and drink coffee... By myself.

You ate AND drank coffee?

I mean... I know you make your coffee strong, but how strong IS it exactly? Does it challenge you to an arm wrestling match? When you stir it does the spoon dissolve?

Chow down an entire bag of Hot Cheetos with nacho cheese on it!



If I were married, I probably would share with him...or maybe buy him his own bag! :p

I think the chip packet thing is definitely not just a single thing

And the chick movie thing is something even married women watch with their other married and single sisters. What happens is the women go off for their 'girls nights out' while the men do their 'boy toy' thing.

The only difference is they have to coordinate the times to coincide on the same day/night. And if they have children, find a babysitter.

what, dont married people eat chips on the couch, my dad does that, plus goes out and takes pics without telling my mum where hes going...

As far as I know, nothing much changes when you are married. for the men anyway. Women just have to clean up more.
Yeah, you just become a slave.

I did a single guy thing last night. I ate a tin of smoked oysters. There was nobody around to complain about the smell and I was able to enjoy them in peace.

This isn't really a "single" thing to do exactly. Although one would have to be single to do it. It's more of a accomplishment in full self sufficiency.
I moved over a year and a half ago and I had to do it completely on my own. I had no help from even my family. I also do not have a car or know how to drive so I asked the movers if I could bum a ride to the new place with my furniture, lol. God blessed me that they said yes and it was done in less than an hour. I even saved money! This is the first time I've ever done something huge on my own and I'm looking forward to doing many more huge life changing projects on my own. Once I work up the courage, means, and combat my sheer laziness to do so. I know God will help me in due time but right now I'm happy and content being in my new home that I established on my own. Praise the Lord!

Saw three movies this year alone. Know no one here where I'm living now. So, I could say everything I do is the most single thing I've done all year. But, movies in particular are social events. Doing them alone is rare and, for me, not preferable... especially when I see all the dating couples holding their concessions as they walk to their seats.

So you may have noticed that sometimes some guys like to just lie in bed for a while early in the morning. Don't need any more sleep, but no reason to jump up and get on the run just yet...

So you may have noticed that refried beans can sometimes cause gas...

So this morning I woke up, but today is my day off, so I lay in the bed and thought about some things, and pooted, and thought about some more things, and pooted... And nobody in the world was bothered by it. Not a single person was bothered, because I'm single. :cool:

Just riffing off the self-sufficency thing

I once did a whole course on permaculture which really pushed the 'self sufficency' lifestyle i.e you go off the grid and basically do EVERYTHING yourself BUT those who tried it soon learned they couldnt do EVERYTHING by themselves.

Hence hippie style communes or lifestyle blockers who still had jobs in town because they couldnt exactly make ends meet on their own.

What I learned as that self-sufficiency is a myth. Even Jesus had to say I send you a helper. And God will say MY grace is sufficient for you. Thats the thing.

No man (or woman) is an island, and whether you are married or single you need to rely on God.

Also trying to do everything yourself takes a lot of time, energy and learning a lot of stuff... that experts could have done better anyway.

When I eat ice cream I like to eat around the edges as it melts. It doesn't look good when you open the unused portion in the freezer but since there is nobody else around. ;)

I finished watching all of Friends on tv...thankfully nobody died.

At one point I was really getting tired of Rachel and Ross being stupid. That they pretty much have to stop a plane from taking off just because they couldnt sort out their relationship.

But then I thought well they couldnt make more episodes in Paris, like they once did for London as that would just blow the budget. And Joey couldnt speak French, though Phoebe could, yet Rachel didnt even bother to practice for her supposed new job? And she was supposed to take baby Emma with her?

I wanted a giant plot black hole to just swallow them all up.

I dont think a married person could even relate to the TV Friends today.

Yeah, no, they wouldn't have stopped that plane in real life. The AIRLINE may change the schedule but anybody else, never! :giggle:

I watched all the seasons of Endeavour straight through, three times in a row. I'm thinking of starting again.

I also recently watched all the seasons of Grimm straight through, three times in a row. Even though I've watched all the seasons of it many, many times before.

I love rewatching my favorites. Right now I'm rewatching Monarch of the Glen on Tubi. Yes, I've seen it all many, many times before!

Hmm, I just realized it's only been over the past 12 years, since I've been single, that I've turned into a serial binge watcher! So I suppose it's a very Single thing to do! 😎

But if you already know how the story ends, why would...

Oh never mind. That line of inquiry never bears any fruit. :p

I'm kidding of course. I do not understand why you would want to watch it over and over, but I observe many people DO like to watch something over and over, so... *shrug*

I think it could be tolerable for your theoretical spouse though, if you used wireless bluetooth earbuds so he didn't have to hear it through the whole house over and over.

I love when I discover a new series that I'm loving, and I don't know how it turns out. But when I watch it again, I always notice things I missed before. Plus, I can happily knit and crochet without having to pay close attention to the tv.

The third time through is like being with an old friend. And then I'm ready to put it aside and dust it out again after a few years.
