an essay in procrastination

Things I am doing instead of writing on my website:

  • Reading Steven King (Wolves of the Calla) – book 4 of 7
  • Realising that I am going to read a Harry Potter spoiler at some point
  • Buying Harry Potter
  • Reading Harry Potter
  • Reading Harry Potter at work
  • Working late (finishing Harry Potter)
  • Back to Wolves of the Calla
  • Trying to figure out if Facebook is worth the effort
  • Skiing on Mount Buller
  • Driving back from Mount Buller
  • Turning around and driving back to Yea to pick up friends whose car broke down
  • Hobbling around after skiing on agonisingly sore calves
  • Trying to recruit people to go skiing again next weekend
  • Eating
  • Drinking
  • Working
  • Watching the rugby
  • Walking the dog
  • Brushing the dog
  • Playing with the camera

    i have a facebook. we can be friends

  • Did you actually work out if Facebook is worth the effort? I tried a look but you have to join first, and I resist joining before I know what the hell it involves.

    Have you finished HP? I thought it was great but so sad it’s all over now.

  • Ah, don’t worry about the Facebook, or the MySpace, even. If you wait just a few more months, the kids will be doing something new. It’s like never buying a camera because you know in a year the same camera with twice the pixels will be half the price.

  • Gah. I went to facebook for 5 seconds to see what the fuss was all about and ran away screaming. I have yet to recover.

  • Listen, you. Enough with the excuses. Your funny and insightful comments on my blog are JUST NOT ENOUGH FOR ME. I need more of your genius. Post, dammit, post!

    PS – yup, you hit the Strine nail on the head.

  • Hope you enjoyed Harry Potter. I totally loved it and I have to say I’m missing it now that it is finished. I’m even finding myself quite envious of people still reading it in a cafe or park.

  • Come on, you must have finished it by now.

  • An itemised list to make one smile. Throw in the eating of raw and round, green peas and it’d be perfect!
    see you, grache
