The other night, Thomas read aloud to me from The Rise of the Creative Class that something like 70% of Americans said they go to work primarily because it is how they enjoy spending their time: not with family or friends, not listening to the radio, not going on a walk, not making love, not eating a bacon-maple donut, not reading the funny pages--but going to work. What. The. Fuck. I didn't work for a good six months plus and I was super-happy, super-productive, and super-focused on enjoying my time. 70% of America, you's is crazy!
