How much time do you spend fucking around?

I ask because my own fucking-around time has reached virtually zero.

That's right. Most days, I don't even have time to look at Facebook. I don't open the links that get sent around, I don't read humorous blogs, and I don't get sucked into a vortex of 90s rave videos on YouTube.

The only way to buy time is to start smoking.

It is what it is said:

The mere fact that you're always on this blog means that you're "fucking around"

I think ... said:

... there's distracted fucking around, and there's potentially productive fucking around.

Going for a walk, visiting an art galler, reading a book or even a newspaper are the latter. Living on the CB blog or reading award annuals are probably the former. YouTube sits somewhere in the middle.

Isn't the whole idea process fucking around and having a laugh until something sticks?

Is listening to music considering 'fucking around?

Good question.

If you are listening to music with the purpose of finding a track for a TV ad, radio ad, case study video etc, then it is not fucking around.

If you are listening to music just for fun, then it is.
