    I Hate Boredom

    Every evening, it comes without warning...that feeling of emptiness, of total lack of interest in anything, that routine that makes your days and nights look alike. After a long day at work (doing the same thing everyday) comes boredom at home. I have nowhere to go, no friends to...

    My Solution

    My solution to boredom is to eat. I makes me feel great to have a very full belly and them I have these wonderful rolls of fat to play with. That keeps me entertained almost endlessly. Of course, the fat cells demand more and more food, so it's a cycle of eating and fattening...
