25 things to do during the WEDSGD

(WEDSGD = Worst Economic Downturn Since the Great Depression)

If you still have a job:
  1. feel superior for seeing it coming "a mile away"
  2. assign blame
  3. consider whether we're permanently or only temporarily fucked
  4. rent as many post-apocalyptic films as possible looking for survival tips
  5. make a list of businesses that will thrive during a downturn
  6. get angry that you can't get a loan to start one
  7. assign blame
  8. shop at the dollar store
  9. fantasize about what you'll do with your money when the WEDSGD is over
  10. fantasize about how much money you could make in the stock market if you can only get in just as things are starting their upward swing.
  11. consider whether we are only temporarily or permanently fucked
  12. fantasize about all the things you'll with your free time do when you get laid of
  13. make lists of 25 things (tune in tomorrow ...)
If you lose your job:

  1. panic
  2. scramble
  3. cut back
  4. give up
  5. set up a clothesline in your backyard, buy a prairie dress or overalls at thrift store, and pretend like you live in olden times.
  6. go to the library a lot
  7. ride your bike places for fun and exercise
  8. find new music on Pandora
  9. make some sandwiches and have a picnic in the park
  10. people watch
  11. take up a cheap hobby like writing or drawing or photography (hooray for digital cameras) or gluing stuff to other stuff
  12. meditate (but don't hold your breath)
