Pants and Entertaining

I'm sleepy from entertaining into the early morning hours. After all that entertaining, I was exhausted and a little sticky. When I woke up this morning, I thought about writing a post but, I could not resist the ease and convenience of morning entertainment. Good entertainment, day or night, makes me retarded and unable to write.

Removing my pants always helps me think.

I prefer not to wear pants when I am home alone. I stand in front of the fridge without my pants and eat pickles. I talk on the phone without my pants on. Sometimes, I just sit there and do nothing without my pants on. Everything that I do with pants, is better without pants.

I like to entertain without being burdened by pants. However, the etiquette for not wearing pants while home alone is very different from not wearing pants at home while entertaining.

During the entertainment, I would rather not stand in front of the fridge, eating pickles with no pants on. If I am eating pickles, it's a pretty good clue that I am not being entertained enough.

I will not answer my phone if it rings while I am being entertained. It's rude to talk on the phone without pants when engaging in entertainment. Anyone foolish enough to answer the phone while I am entertaining, will find that all entertainment will abruptly cease. When the phone call has ended, I may not feel like entertaining any more. Occasionally, I can be persuaded.

For a change of pace, I like to lie on my back without my pants and do nothing but enjoy the entertainment and the view. Sometimes, I'll even take a moment to entertain myself.

Wow, I'm doing a documentary on entertainment techniques of bloggers. Can I get some footage of your events?

Glad to hear you had such an ENTERTAINING night! Sounds like lots of pantless fun!

Pants are completely optional at my house.

Why am I hearing Scott Joplin's music in the background?

Funny post...

Entertainment and entertaining is always a good thing … pants only get in the way

Careful...your sheets might not be made with the same stain fighting technology!

At 10:32 AM, Blogger WNG said...

I am SO jealous...
Also I must say that this is one of the reasons I love short skirts... many entertaining possibilities...

At 10:33 AM, Blogger Laurie said...

Seems I've had to "entertain" myself a lot lately. Sounds like you aren't. Good on you.

At 10:43 AM, Blogger Michael C said...

Another, uh, entertaining post. Damn, now I feel like I need to go to confession again!

At 10:51 AM, Blogger Ms. Mamma said...

Clever and funny. I could definitely use some entertainment.

At 11:01 AM, Blogger Melanie said...

entertainment is less frequent these days as I have company 24-7. and not the "entertaining" kind.

mmmmm pickles.

At 11:13 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


It just so happens that I made a video last night.


I was really entertained to see my pants hanging over the couch this afternoon when I rolled out of bed.


I like your house.


I hear it too.


Entertaining even.


Pants should remain on for family entertainment.


I haven't looked at the sheets yet.


Skirts and entertainment do go well together.


I got a cramp entertaining myself.


Confession? Isn't that why you blog?

ms. mamma,

I wish I could help. I'm all worn out.


Pickles are entertaining.

i love when entertaining goes into the wee hours, and then you get just enough rest to entertain some more.

terrific post. i'm now eagerly anticipating entertaining as soon as possible.

At 11:33 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I am the best guest in the world when I'm entertaining myself.

At 11:52 AM, Blogger CruiserMel said...

Let me get this straight - you're not talking about your bridge club, are you?

At 11:53 AM, Blogger turnerBroadcasting said...

pant pant pant pant

At 12:15 PM, Blogger puppylander said...

blogging makes you sticky? oh. you didn't mean you were entertaining us.

At 12:39 PM, Blogger Susan said...

Pantsless pickles: Sounds like a good entertainment plan.

At 12:59 PM, Blogger Jenny! said...

Sounds entertaining! Did you play with teh lube while entertaining...that could explain the stickiness!

At 1:07 PM, Blogger Arthur Dent said...

One of the most entertaining evenings I've had involved entertaining until the sunrise hours of the morning. I then woke up again around 11am to the realization that I was entertaining again, to a voice that said, "Oh, glad you're awake... Hope you don't mind? You really didn't seem to earlier."

I've Mist you, my dear :D

At 1:36 PM, Blogger Kiyotoe said...

we ain't talking about watching television are we?

quite the post for me to come back to.

you "entertain" me all the time and don't even know it. ;)

At 1:44 PM, Blogger Legaleagle said...

Personally, I refer to entertaining as "cleaning his apartment".

Entertaining this entertainment, no?

At 2:00 PM, Blogger His Sinfulness said...

I couldn't agree more about pants - this is why I wear kilts. Kilts can be *very* entertaining. Besides, pants are a plot from the man, trying to keep Celty down!

At 2:03 PM, Anonymous token said...

We could all use a some extra entertainment lately---it's the best distraction.

At 2:17 PM, Blogger c j. said...

cheers to you! keep the entertainment coming.

At 2:35 PM, Blogger velvet said...

You're lucky for you that you have so many choices of entertainment.

At 3:05 PM, Blogger M@ said...

It used to be hilarious for one's girlfriend to talk to, say, her grandmother while you were entertaining said girl.

At 3:08 PM, Blogger Winter said...

I love entertainment.

At 4:37 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

This was very entertaining.

And I don't have any pants on.

At 4:45 PM, Blogger Amber Dalton said...

Argh. I want to write something witty and entertaining, but I see your commenters have all beaten me to it.



At 4:57 PM, Blogger Tug said...

How very entertaining! Maybe I'll entertain tonight...since I don't wear pants unless it's 90 below out.

At 5:06 PM, Blogger Avitable said...

I'll entertain you. I'm told that my acting is a perfect size.

At 5:32 PM, Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

I don't like to eat pickles while pantsless. Oftentimes the pickles are larger than my johnson. I don't need to see that.

At 5:48 PM, Anonymous BK said...

My wife is always asking me if I'd like to attend a party in her pants.

I always bring the pickle.

At 6:29 PM, Blogger othurme said...

Sweet. I love word association games.

You say the words "telephone", "pantless", and "entertainment" and I can only respond with the words "mutual", "call", and "me".

At 7:01 PM, Blogger mindy said...

I wish I had more entertainment in my life. Do I, Do I....

At 7:08 PM, Blogger ~Tim said...

Bloggers without pants everywhere love this post!

At 7:57 PM, Blogger Mayren said...

I Agree : Pants + Entertainment = no while Entertainment - pant = Fun.
I hope you at least entertained yourself and enjoyed it :P

At 10:56 PM, Blogger TOM said...

how entertaining! LOL

At 10:57 PM, Blogger eric313 said...

Dabbling, entertianing--
it's all good in the hood!

Just remember that pants are for public appearances. I were boxes to take the trash out on friday mornings. If someone had a bitch about it, I'd just turn around and give'em a shake. That's slack their jaw out.

At 11:00 PM, Blogger Jim said...

Somehow pickles and entertainment doesn't sit well with me. Pants, definitely not!

At 2:29 AM, Blogger Pie said...

I love talking on the phone whilst entertaining, if the person on the other end of the phone doesn't know you're entertaining it makes the entertainment more...entertaining.

At 11:57 AM, Blogger Webmiztris said...

the first thing I do when I get home from work is take off my pants! In the summer I wear nothing but a XL t-shirt around the house! I usually put my pants back on if we're getting company though, but I certainly don't LIKE it. :)

At 12:29 PM, Blogger mysterygirl! said...

I was at a bar on Saturday night that boasted a "pants optional" dance party upstairs. If you come to DC, let me know, and I'll give you all the info.

At 6:02 PM, Blogger ~*SilverNeurotic*~ said...

I think Paris Hilton will beg to differ. I think she's got the whole entertaining with her pants off and talking on the phone down to a T. Perhaps you should take lessons.

Don't know about the pickle thing. I'm still under the impression that she never eats.

At 4:27 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

lol genius... i need some entertaining...:-(

At 5:28 AM, Blogger Glamourpuss said...

Entertaining can be an all-consuming business when done well. I can see you're a professional. Good skills.


At 8:19 PM, Blogger Mrs4444 said...

I can't imagine you finding the time to read this, but I'll throw it out there anyway. You are hysterically funny! Thanks for sharing your gift.

Is entertaining the same as relaxing

I could use some entertainment.
