Do You Procrastinate? Contest!!!

I procrastinate. In fact, sometimes I procrastinate procrastinating. Why? I don't know. Make me feel better. Tell me how you procrastinate in the comments. The person who makes me laugh the hardest will get a $10 Starbucks card. Not a big prize, I know. Got a kid in college. I may be on the corner with a tin cup by Christmas.

Hey, guess what? I'm not even going to take my laptop with us. Shocked? Me too.
**That is not Frappy in the picture. I got it from freefoto.com. I picked it because it reminded me of her and it looks like the girl is doing homework.

just wanted you to know i'm procrastinating on my comment ;)

Just Me said...

I am probably the only person on earth not in love with Starbucks, so Frappy can have the card if I actually win. (But I think Jojo already did.)

How do I procrastinate? You're looking at it. I have a half dozen transcripts to turn in, so I'm visiting my favorite blogs instead.

I've had to put off housecleaning to get my transcripts done. It's dangerous in here.

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow?

I have a picture somewhere to go with my story. I'll find it later. :)

I didn't get my driver's license until I was 22. I didn't actually learn to drive until I was 23 (only in Louisiana!). Studying for my driving written exam? Asleep under a tree. Does waiting a year after passing the exam to actually learn to drive count as procrastination?

Procrastinate? Heck, I even made up a song about it! It is on one of my podcasts if you really want to hear it. I think it might hit the top ten . . . if I ever did anything about publishing it but . . . you guessed it - I am procrastinating!

I am the woman who will put off dusting until I can see kitty paw prints in the dust. I put off laundry until I am down to my last pair of undies - and I have a lot to go through!

Procrastination is a way of life, right?

I will just sit on the side of my bed in the morning thinking about everything I have to do for so long that by the time I actually get my shoes on my feet to go start my day, it's time for lunch.
I am actually procrastinating right now. I should be getting out the Wii to do my morning workout so I can go take a shower and get ready to go to work. Ya know, if I wait long enough I won't have time for that workout! (but there is always time to go to work, dang it!)

Hmm. This isn't all that funny but I am sitting here eating a bowl of cereal and reading blogs so I don't have to do my statistics homework.

I have some tracking lighting down stairs that doesn't work. I need to fix it. Someday I'm going to look into that.

There is a piece of wood trim in the hallway down stairs that needs to be replace and painted. Someday I'm going to get to that.

I need to repair the choke cable on my bike. It still runs, but someday I should fix that.

There are some florescent tubes lights burned out in one of my daughters rooms I need to replace. Someday I'm going to change that.

I have an old porch swing that I need to finish stripping and repaint. Someday I'm going to finish to that.

We've been painting our house for the last two years. Someday I'm going to complete that.

One of our garage doors is rotting. Someday I'm going to get to that.

We have a drain under our shop that needs to be cleaned out. Someday I'm going to clean that.

Our mail box has a lean to it. Someday I'm going to straighten that.

I did fix the leak at our water meter, but haven't buried the line again. Someday I'm sure I'll get to that.

The ivy is taking over our fir trees and if I don't cut it back it will kill them. Someday I'm going to stop that.

Our bathtub drain was clogged and broken. Monday I decided this IS THE DAY that I going to fix that. In the process I lost a brass piece down the pipe and now it's stuck there forever! I should have procrastinated on that.

I was late posting my blog today because I could not decide which side of the bed to get out of...

Mabunny said...

LOL at JoJo's and Bogarts comments. ANYWHO, I procrastinate doing the dishes. I hate doing dishes. I am the dishwasher, I don't have an auto one... I do them about an hour or so before I start dinner for the evening, then by the time dinner is over, the sink is full again and I'm like didn't I just DO dishes??./sigh

Mary said...

Well, this might not count for the contest but I remembered a joke on procrastinating that I cut out of the paper in 1996!! But I identify with it. . painfully so!

It is a picture and I will send it by email. .hope it makes it!

And this time I'm not going to procrastinate. . sending it now!

Well obviously since you posted on the 19th and it's the 22nd... I will put things off horribly. My cell is on the fritz, it works 1/2 the time, I have a coupon for a free phone it runs out today, I hae not gone to get my new phone. I must do it today. I think I'll get a cup of coffee and read my O magazine, I can get my phone later. I mean after all as Scarlette O'Hara said..."Tomorrow is another day!"
