At least I’m not the only one

“A morning of pathological sloth. What brings on this disgraceful, paralytic laziness? It is always dangerous, of course, not to dress before breakfast. I spent nearly two and a half hours reading Life magazine. Then I got shaved, collapsed again into a chair. Then I washed. Another relapse. Then, at last, I dressed. It was now two o’clock. The beautiful, intact morning, which might have been used for all kinds of valuable purposes, was wasted – as vulgarly, as meaninglessly as a millionaire wastes ten dollars on a flower which he will immediately throw away.”

– Christopher Isherwood, December 26. 1939
