The house is empty: What should I do?
My baby done gone and left me, took the dogs too.

It's not a country or blues song, she just took my nieces and dogs up to the mountains for the weekend.

How should I entertain myself?

4. Too cold to be naked
I could crank the furnace up but then I'd feel guilty after watching An Inconvenient Truth. No sports on TV at 5:17 PM Eastern Standard Time. Maybe I need to upgrade my cable package.

22. Why not dance around naked?
Nobody would know unless you leave the curtains/blinds open!!! You shouldn't even answer the phone to let anyone know that you are at home. Because if you did that, some uninvited guest will stop by and ruin your weekend!!! Enjoy yourself and here's a toast to you!!! :toast:

6. I think running around naked is obligatory. So is drinking beer...
and watching something really stupid on television.

9. I'm drinking beer
I just don't feel like getting naked because it's too damn cold

I don't feel like turning the TV on because I'm taking advantage of the empty house to listen to really loud music

10. Move everything around.
And then act like you don't know what they are talking about when they get back and start asking questions.

12. That's some good advice! He could make a bunch of reall small changes, too
like reversing the hot/cold faucets or replacing a couple of light switches with dimmers, and then just say "it's always been like that :shrug:" when asked...

16. That would really freak them out
My wife knows I'm lazy and that I've never moved piece of furniture unless she asked me to do it. If you don't hear from me it means she had me committed.

18. Fine. This one's REAL easy.
Do you have a spray hose on your kitchen sink? If you do, right before she gets home, use clear tape and tape the handle so that when she turns it on, she gets squirted.

21. I'd do that but I've got Heaven on my Mind
Not making this up: That's the song that showed up on my MP3 player randomizer.

OTOH: Maybe heaven is filled with Porn and Pizza

15. First, you need to build a sofa cushion fort.
Then you need to put important things, like the TV remote, beer and snacks in the fort. I'm sure you'll get more ideas after you hang out in the fort watching TV for awhile.

23. And the semi-final answer is . . .
Go out, see some great live music, after soaking in the bathtub drinking beer and smoking cigarettes. With inspirational help by the Fishbone song Question of Life

See you guys in a few hours. I'm going out to see some music
