Day... two

I feel like I need to explain myself here. This thing was intended to have daily updates. Obviously that didn't happen.

So then I'm like "ok, I guess its a weekly blog now"

... That didn't happen either.

Fine! Whatever! I'll just redeem myself by showing that I finished the tasks I set out to, WITHOUT the help of the blog's shame to inspire me! Lets revisit that list so I can rock it.

1. Register my car. Nope
2. Pay parking ticket. Check!
3. Clean the Salamander tank. Negatory
4. Clean my bathroom. aaaaaand no.

Ok. So the procrastination blog experiment has failed. Epicly.

While busy NOT doing any of the things on my list, I did manage to rewatch all 3 seasons of Avatar, The Last Airbender, AND check out the live action "The Last Airbender".

Very simple reason why the movie failed. M. Night turned this example of awesome (you only need to watch the first 20 seconds)

Into this slice of fuckleberry pie

clip 1: little girl effortlessly creates pillars of stone to attack her enemies
clip 2: six grown-ass men dance in unison for 5 seconds to make a single cgi rock gently float across the screen like a leaf on the wind (bonus points if you catch the reference).

Bah. More later.

Day one

I procrastinate. Like a lot. To the point of almost constant self-sabotage. I'm like a negligent middle schooler that leaves bowls of spaghetti precariously balanced on table edges, and then freaks out when forced to clean the (inevitable) saucplosion. Yeah its a big mess to clean up, but its entirely my own fault!

I was convinced to start blogging about my procrastination about 2 weeks ago; "If you write what you are doing with your time it could be really helpful" I was told. I agreed that I would definitely write the first post that same night. But then it turned out that there were only 9 episodes left in season 5 of the office, and it would be a shame to just NOT watch them all back to back. Then the next day I had an 8 page paper to finish (start) that was due the next morning, and the day after that I totally had this weird throat thing that demanded I run to the store to buy mountain dew and then... Etc.

SO. I am finally starting this damnable thing. I think for starters I just want to make a list of the shit I need to get done next week. Hopefully it being all open to the public might shame me into actually doing some of the things on the list. Here goes.

1. Register my car. It expired back in APRIL and I never got around to renewing.
2. Pay parking ticket. Got that sucker at least a few months ago, apparently I can get arrested if I don't pay it so...
3. Clean the Salamander tank. Oh yeah I have a salamander now. I caught him! his name is Jethro the Salamander.
4. Clean my bathroom. Its naaaaasty.

I think thats pretty decent, at least for the first week. Wish me luck!
