The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

Thank goodness it’s only made of air.

No, this isn’t a post about the crashing economy or the failure of the stock markets or the fact that – really – everything is just settling back down to it’s pre overly-inflated status.

Oh, wait, that was a comment about the economy.  Well let’s follow that up with a question:

Since you can’t even turn on the news, or log on to Yahoo, without hearing about the Doom and Gloom that was once our economy (and the world’s economy) and you don’t want to hear my nutter take on the state of spending – you’re probably looking for some mindless entertainment.

In times like these, our entertainment outlets are even more important than ever. We need an escape, however brief. Something to take our thoughts away from that which we cannot control, and give our stress levels a break.

So I’m wondering – what’s your escape route? Do you sit on the couch, grab the remote, and surf the channels – or do you go to your local bookstore and invest in some between-the-pages respite?  What gives you the most bang for your buck when it comes to “Calgon, take me away” moments?

  1. Books always do it best for me. When I took vacation this last week, I made a trip to Barnes and Noble. I spent about four or five hours browsing before spending entirely too much money on some books. It was so relaxing. I browsed the first floor, stopping for a pumpkin spice latte and some pumpkin cheesecake. Then I moved up to the second floor. It was so zen and relaxing for me.

    Too bad I have to go back to work. I really don’t want to.
