CHEAP WAYS TO KILL TIME IN 1996

From a li’l book I’ve been working on, about a group of slackers in the mid-1990s…

  • Drinking at home
  • Drinking nasty off-license cans of beer at home
  • Smoking rollies, not filter cigarettes
  • Television. Ideally, one that someone else is paying the rental on
  • Sleeping
  • Doing the housework
  • Walking around aimlessly
  • Reading. Even better, reading someone else’s book, or one you got from the library, or bought for twenty pee in a charity shop
  • Sex
  • Visiting friends
  • Staring into space
  • Daytime naps
  • Masturbation
  • Drifting around the shops without buying anything
  • Writing letters
  • Writing ‘Top Ten’ lists
  • Writing anything
  • Daydreaming
  • Sucking on one coffee for three straight hours
  • Stomach crunches and wall push-ups
  • Worrying about the future
  • Regretting the past
  • Obsessing about the present
  • Rewatching old videos so often the tape catches fire
  • Meditation and/or praying
  • All-night Ouija board sessions
  • Having a minor nervous breakdown
