It’s so funny …. or is it ironic? Procrastination.

Here I am, procrastinating on packing for my move to Florida; from making those few important calls; even procrastinating on eating, because once I’m done breakfast, I really don’t have an excuse for not doing the other things.

(Is it “procrastinating on,” or “…from”?)

(Does that question mark belong inside the quotation marks? Or outside?)

(Should I have used those semicolons?)

(You’re procrastinating again).

Oh, let’s face it. There are a number of things I could do to procrastinate even further.

Here’s how it works. As I said, procrastinating on breakfast leads into lunch time, and we all know that those offices will be closed from 12 to 1, thus further delaying my completion of those¬†important calls!

Packing: What it is, actually, is re-packing. And I can’t start re-packing til the phone calls are done, else I will be so engrossed in the task I’ll forget to get back to the phone calls.

What I think is high-larious is the fact that right now I am using writing to procrastinate on the other things I’m supposed to be doing.

Whereas, ordinarily, I will use other things to procrastinate on writing.

Isn’t it ironic?

(Would that really qualify as “irony”?)

(Thinks about looking up Alanis Morissette song,¬†“Isn’t It Ironic”)

So what methods do you use to procrastinate? And how do you fool yourself into thinking you’re not?

Answer quick, so I can procrastinate some more!
