Were you planning on running this morning, but wasted too much time reading Twitter messages on your iPhone? When you do make it to the gym, do people give you the evil eye because you sit on a weight machine and text with a friend? If you answered yes to either question, you may be turning into a "hyper-connected" couch potato. According to a study published in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity , frequent cell phone users were far more likely to forego or disrupt physical exercise and scored lower on fitness assessments than peers who used cell phones less frequently.

THE END OF SUMMER brings a sad little dread that tugs the heart downward. Truth is, though, summer as it exists in our nostalgic memories -- long days of swimming, playing and, best of all, accomplishing absolutely nothing -- has been withering, and gone, for years, like a worn-thin autumn leaf. Summer was, for a while, a child's time, conferring an inviolate right to laziness.

Kobe Bryant said that former Lakers center, and four-time NBA champion, Shaquille O'Neal was lazy. "It used to drive me crazy that he was so lazy," said Bryant of O'Neal to the New Yorker .  "You got to have the responsibility of working every single day. " Bryant and O'Neal won three titles together with the Lakers before the team sent O'Neal in trade to the Miami Heat in 2004, where he won his fourth title in 2006. The Lakers and Bryant won two additional titles without O'Neal, after acquiring center-forward Pau Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies in 2008.

In the arena of human indolence, the male of the species has no equal. It's why he invented the couch, television, underwear and holidays, all of which combine to allow him to lie on his primary creation wearing only boxer shorts and watching other primates bat, kick, pass or lob balls of varying sizes for his delight and edification. What man considers both comfort and enjoyment can be achieved on any weekend day, but tradition has a special tug when it's a national holiday, an occurrence that he feels has been created especially for him to laze.

If you are honestly torn between eating a thick, juicy porterhouse steak or gnawing on a month-dead raccoon, you are not considered a gourmet. Generally, we do not expect a person who walks into a theater halfway through the film to be the most knowledgeable about what's happening in the movie. In no sphere of human activity do we automatically associate indecision, laziness and ignorance with shrewdness, commitment and expertise. No sphere, that is, but one.

Dear Amy: I recently visited my parents and my 27-year-old brother, who is living with them. He earned a dual degree in business and marketing in May and has been unemployed ever since. I asked him how he pays his bills with no job, and he told me "the magic bill-paying fairies" take care of it. Not only have my parents been paying his bills, but they also make excuses for why he doesn't have a job. They do not understand that they are stunting his growth by eclipsing his responsibilities.

Lazy Dog's DJ set Friday at a packed Fais Do-Do ballroom (a space that should be used more often for electronic dance shows) was the type of performance that can be maddening to review. From a skills standpoint, the duo (which features Ben Watt of Everything But the Girl and Jay Hannan) was mediocre at best. Several times during the set, which found Watt and Hannan alternating behind the turntables, the pair had the opportunity to go for the kill, but failed to capitalize.
