Boring Hobbies pt. 1

"People Watching"

Let me tell you something: people watching is not fun. I talked to 3 or 4 different girls at some random party last night, and they all said that "people watching" was among their various hobbies and interests (others included "hanging out," "having fun," "listening to music," etc. etc. ad nauseum). People watching a) is not a hobby, and b) is boring. People are generally boring. Think about it: how many people do you see every day that make you think "Hmmm, I wonder what that person's life is all about and how they got to where they are?" (p.s. if you list a number more than zero, you're a liar.)

People mostly just mill about and try to pass the time until they can do something that requires little effort- sleeping, eating, watching tv, etc. Watching people mull about as they try to pass the time by doing things like shopping or drinking coffee should not be a hobby. If I'm going to be people watching, they better be naked, dancing, fighting, or some combination of the three. Even then, it better be somewhat original, like a naked midget fighting a dancing guy, or I lose interest. People are boring, and apparently they have boring hobbies as well.
