bait and switch... 

There I was, checking one of my 359 email addresses (okay, I actually have nine that I check on a daily basis - ten, if you want to include work - no, I don't know why, but I assure you that each and every one has its own purpose). This particular email address is through Hotmail. I logged off and was presented with the MSN page, where I spied the following headline: The upside of being lazy.

Ooh, now there's a article I need to read! I thought. I am a fine lazy person. Frankly, I excel at being lazy. In reference to my own fluctuating energy levels, I am frequently reminded of a Sherlock Holmes quote: "I am the most incurably lazy devil that ever stood in shoe leather - that is, when the fit is on me, for I can be spry enough at times."

So opened up the article and what do I find? The Rewards of Relaxation: Why Slowing Down Is Healthy.

Relaxing is not being lazy. Slowing down is not being lazy. To wit:

1 - abatement or relief from bodily or mental work, effort, application, etc.
2 - an activity or recreation that provides such relief; diversion; entertainment.

1. averse or disinclined to work, activity, or exertion; indolent.

I was promised one article and was presented with another. This may be cause for a lawsuit.

Nah, don't feel like it right now...
