Post Boredom is the alternative name for Post Grape-Nuts.

Ah. The Godspeed You! Black Emperor of boredom. I liked it before it was cool.

Boredom: the ultimate first-world problem.

This reads like what a clueless upper-class twit secondary character in a PG Wodehouse novel would write in his diary, if he was actually self-aware and had 21st century literary criticism tropes crammed into his head.

First heard that from Betty Draper in Mad Men.

Yes, I remember that episode and the shock I experienced when she said it.

Tediologists are already lauding the promise of neo-boredom.

I'd tell you what sort of ennui I'm feeling, but you've probably never heard of it.

I almost envy your boredom.  I'm "essential" and have been working my keister off since this nightmare started.

It's nice to have a paycheck.  Its not nice to have so much unpaid overtime.

Do art. You'll never be bored. Do BAD art...until you are better. Simple things that you have around the house. Pens, paper (or blood and walls....depending on HOW bored you are) and put youtube on. Learn something about art.

Make music.

DO something that can be done within your four walls.

The government should have said something like, "Look, we need to go in a 30 day lockdown. Here's some money. Buy some supplies....buy art supplies, cooking supplies, gym supplies, video gaming supplies, drinking supplies, weed supplies, etc so that you have SOMETHING TO DO during the next 30 days. Make your home more comfortable. Watch videos to learn something new. MAKE videos. Do art. Stay active. God bless you. God bless America! DO YOUR PATRIOTIC DUTY BY DOING STUFF AT HOME!"

I like it. Who should Biden appoint as the nation's Boredom Coordinator during lockdown?

Yes, but are you the chairman of the bored?
 
2020-12-02 10:18:19 AM  
Then why are you posting?

A high school friend's psychologist father said this not infrequently.  I've had one pause during this Pandemic time where I thought I might be bored but I was just taking a break from figuring out what to do next.  I keep the idea of doing a detailed reading of Doctor Zhivago in my back pocket as a project of next to last resort.

Other than the workday being one interminable stretch of complete monotony, I don't remember the last time I was recreationally bored.  I have the opposite problem.  I want the world to farking leave me alone for one damn day.

If all they've done is watched the Sopranos and played Fortnite, then they're the ones who failed lockdown, not the other way around.

You just need to think like this guy (but take better care of your gear):

When my kids would say they were bored, I would give them something to do. Something like sweeping out the garage or scrubbing out the bathtub.
