I'm really, really good at procrastinating. I've been putting off a new post because I was uninspired. Not just sort of uninspired, but really really uninspired. And it got me to thinking about procrastination and some of the things I've put off until the absolutely last minute.
1- Returning library books and movies. I could probably own a small library with what I've paid in late fees over the years. In college, I once had to use materials from the special collections area for a history class. You had to check these materials out. I owed some astronomical fee and couldn't check anything out. I ended up having to read the materials standing at the desk. I was standing and reading when my history professor walked in and then I had the good fortune of explaining why I was standing and reading to him. Good times.
Netflix has saved me a small fortune in late fees. The Little Supermarket in Wilmington, NY no doubt wondered why their overall income went way down when we moved. I know it's because I wasn't surrendering half a paycheck for dratted late fees.
2- Oh how many years have I been at the post office on April 15. At closing.
3- When I went into labor with Greeley I wanted to wait as long as possible before I went to the hospital. I wanted to be able to move around freely and not be hooked up to monitors and whatnot until necessary. Rich went out for juice for me and when he came back, I asked him to time the contractions for me. Less than a minute apart and we still had to drop the kids off at a friend's house. I so thought she was going to be born in the front seat of the minivan. On the bright side, it was a full forty minutes later. Lots of time to spare.
So, um. That's what I've got. A picture of Greeley with a sticker on her head that has absolutely nothing to with a post about nothing.
Feel free to discuss amongst yourselves.
