Ennui? or: Are We Having Fun Yet?

"The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity." -Dorothy Parker

My high school French teacher, Mrs. Hardy, used to say that people who were bored were just not smart enough to find something to do.

My mother always had stuff for bored people to do: window washing, floor scrubbing, bathroom polishing, lawn mowing, garden weeding. There were never any bored people around my mother.

"(S)he refused to be bored chiefly because she wasn't boring." -Zelda Fitzgerald

I'm off to Quilt expo with my friend Beth (who blogs here). I doubt I'll be bored.
