Bone idle

All those things I put off until I had a bit of time to do it...

  • Get some sleep.
  • Read some of the books in that big pile on the sofa.
  • Clean the bathroom.
  • Vacuum the window ledges.
  • Watch The Small Object of Desire de-flea The Cat I Do Not Have.
  • Chop down all those dogwood bushes that have erupted in the front garden.
  • De-flea  The Small Object of Desire after she's finished de-fleaing The Cat I Do Not Have.
  • Do something about that back fence without hurting myself this time.
  • Chop back the boysenberry jungle in the back garden.
  • Write some blog posts about Julian and Sandy; the rĂ´le of licorice allsorts in parliamentary democracy; speckled woods: bully boys of the brambles; and, perhaps Titch and Quackers.
  • Do something about that pile of clothes on the spare bed.
  • Take those jackets to the dry-cleaners.
  • Clean that window. You know, *that* one..
  • Write some posts in the serious blog about systemic failures in public library strategy; social media as stock promotion tools; and integrating back-office systems.
  • Empty the cat litter tray that The Cat I Do Not Have only uses as my 4 o'clock alarm clock.
  • Edit the contents of the fridge
  • Find that sock that fell behind the cooker
What I actually did...

All worthy pursuits I suppose, but I can't get past the Lord Peter Wimsy-ness of the sock behind the cooker. Could there be a best seller in this...?

So having written the list you are now further forward than you were before....well done...I'd now have a lie down if I were you..........

The longer you leave that sock the fluffier it will get.
One of life's great metaphors.

It's the thought that counts.

You meant well.

That's a good list. But making a list wasn't on your list

outstanding achievement.

To turn a list about procrastination into a viable blog post takes a level of skill I can only aspire to. Good work.

You'll have to retrieve the sock and throw it away properly or you'll NEVER find its mate.
