This is a question Procrastination

Outlook is a wonderful tool, but not when it keeps reminding you that it is now 96 weeks since you were supposed to finish a report you haven't even started yet.

Just how lazy are you? How long will you put off the essential or the inevitable? What do you fill the time with?

(We're too lazy to write something funny here. You do it.)

I wonder...
...if the powers-that-be only picked this topic so they could hilariously delay the next one.

That would be oh-so-funny.

We'd all split our sides laughing.

Oh, yes.

Aren't we playing the last game today, or is everyone busy doing nothing?

I can't be bothered to write any more...
So I'll just link to one of my earlier posts.


The Image Challenge came a day late, I really, REALLY hope the same doesn't happen with QOTW.

But it might save your life!
When my mates Dad died, they had a whip round for charity rather than going down the route of flowers and stuff.

The money was sat in the envelopes provided by the charity for about 8 months before anyone called the local representative of said charity to come and collect it.

As my mate said, ‘Well, it’s a difficult time – or at least it was, then we just argued over who was going to call the woman’ (it was a 30 second phone call) he went on to say, ‘perhaps even more worrying than the fact neither my or my sister have called to have this money collected, is the fact we are raising money for a charity that is researching a cure for an hereditary illness that killed both my grandfather and my dad.’

I considered that to be fairly lazy.

Lost "Carry On" film
Recently, a group of researchers at Pinewood studios have uncovered a long rumored script for an unmade Carry On film. You must have heard of it, it's called Carry On Procrastinating.

HM Government is led by Bernard Bresslaw, who hilariously blunders from one cock up to the next, with predictably mirth some results. You'll giggle sides when he tells poor people to get their homes insulated, you'll laugh as he tells a bunch of rich Saudi Sheiks to pump more oil out of the ground instead of reducing taxes on fuels.

Meanwhile, the bubbly Culture Secretary played by Barbara Windsor gets herself into all kinds of comic japes. Watch the hilarity unfold as hapless Babs loses yet another laptop containing the names and bank account numbers of everyone in Britain!

Kenneth Williams plays Bresslaw's crooked arch-nemesis, who's called back into government to help them in the next election. Williams is seen scrounging for money from a Russian billionaire and cleverly he arranges for a passing public schoolboy toff take the rap instead.

Charles Hawtrey plays the ex-Prime Minister, who is amusingly afflicted with Munchausen's Syndrome and as such is utterly unable to separate fact from fiction. Fortunately for Bresslaw, he's touring the Holy Land pretending to be Jesus.

Hattie Jacques plays the harridan deputy PM who despises men, in particular her flatulent predecessor; Terry Scott who loves pies, Jaguars and risque moments with his secretary.

Finally, we have Frankie Howerd as the Chancellor of the Exchequer, caught with his pants down he decides to spend his way out of a wee spot of financial difficulty and hopes that no-one notices!

This would have been a classic Carry On had anyone gotten around to making it. They don't write 'em like they used to.

I like the fact that the best procrastinator
who manages to enter this QOTW will not leave any time to amass any clicks, and will thus fail to be on the Best page.

Ob recursive: Yesterday I put off not doing any work by reviewing a paper instead -- I procrastinated doing any procrastination.

I used to change the QotW every Thursday at 11am on the dot.

In those days, there was none of this ‘First’ and ‘Last’ business, with sadsacks breaking their F5 keys in anticipation of the next Question, as the old one drones on way into the evening…

Quite simply, everybody knew where they stood.

Then, as time went on, I thought – ‘meh, fuck it’.

See you all about 6pm...ish...If I can be bothered

Love Chthonic

Peace out.

My girlfriend wants to have my baby. Yay!!!

She's had a few problems with her lovely lady bits and as par for the course I have to have a few test carried out too to make sure I'm firing on all cylinders. General health assessment - check. Blood tests - check. Semen count - err, well, I actually kept putting that off. Not because I have a problem about wanking in public places, its more because the doctors gave me a number of a clinic on Euston Road to phone and sort out my own appointment. This was back in early September. I only got round to ringing them last week. I was supposed to go down there today armed with a fresh batch of my man juice for them to count, quaff, whatever they do with it.

I slept in. Got up late. Quickly knocked one out. (Your not allowed to cum for three days before giving them your best dairy produce, so that didnt take too long), and then legged it down to the tube with my man juice in a little container under my arm so I wouldnt miss my appointment.

I made the appointment - just, at ten thirty... Only my specimin didnt...

If you happen to be on the Northern Line, High Barnet branch today and see a small container containing what looks like spunk, well, yes, it is actually spunk...

I didn't bother posting until now.
It's a deliberate choice, though, not me putting it off. I wanted to see how many posts would make the same joke about a country full of rude cassiterite miners, that's a "Pro Crass Tin Nation" or scheduler tasks with dreadlocks, accessed through a file system, that would be a "/proc Rasta nation", or similar.

Quite a lot, as it turns out.

I've been talking about BOAT.

Not working, just talking about BOAT, voting BOAT, writing BOAT on my head...the list goes on.

And it's not just me - the absolute best b3tans are all doing it.

Paperwork is for people who want to remain in employment - for the rest of us, there's BOAT.

Jobs are like buses
After months of post-degree job application sloth, I finally manage to rouse myself enough to get a piss-paid job at a large chain of supermarkets.

Then, a job which I actually WANT at a university manages to resurface after months of hovering in the limbo 'twixt in-tray and bin. It's one of those rare beauties that involves a subject you're interested but won't melt your mind or force you to do research in the middle of the North Sea.

However, the first training day of the former and the interview for the latter manage to conspire against me and fall on EXACTLY the same minute. I have to choose between pissing off my current employer for the *prospect* of some job satisfaction, or miss out and actually (finally) earn some money. I NEED to call one of them and postpone/rearrange or I'll end up pissing them both off.

So what do I do? I 'mull it over' by playing Dice Wars, Red Alert and Reversi for hours, consider buying extortionate imported Anime robots, and make various blends of tea.

Length? Depends if I've remembered my rolling pin.

I procrastinate over absolutely everything
And my procrastination has cost me the single most important thing to me in the world.

Going to try not to procrastinate in future, but I wish I had a time machine.

Here is a quote from a book I am currently reading.
Thought I might share it with you all. (It is actually a quote of a quote if you know what i mean)

Ironically I've been meaning to read this book for the last 2 years.

"Get hold of the main thing: That the world and the self are one and perfect. Only your attitude is faulty and needs readjustment."
A faulty attitude creates a faulty world---a world of insufficiency, in which human beings are reduced to the status of things. It is a world of endless distractions, and "distractions from distraction," where individuals feel like voids that need to be filled. It is a world in which the present is devalued, and our hopes and dreams are projected on an empty future.

I thought those lines to be quite fitting to this QOTW.

That is all

/length etc.
