27 down, 3 to go… I’m going to be crawling across the finish line

Things I Did to Procrastinate Blogging This Evening:

  1. Read all blogs until Google Reader said 0 unread items.
  2. Checked Gmail.
  3. Tried to figger out which rat bastards plagiarized Rebecca‘s blog by Googling the first sentence.
  4. Failed.
  5. Checked Yahoo! Mail.
  6. Looked up the closest Ikea and MapQuested directions.
  7. Checked Hotmail.
  8. Read some blogs that aren’t in my reader, just bookmarked. Hey, you gotta sell it to me to make my Google Reader, baby.
  9. Got really desperate and decided to *gasp!* clean!
  10. Started to clean my desk.
  11. Realized the complete and utter futility of that particular activity and gave up.
  12. Made a leftover turkey, lettuce, cheese, and sour cream wrap.
  13. Snarfed it.
  14. Took dishes back into the kitchen. Noticed nasty goo spilled on the bottom cupboards.
  15. Washed kitchen cupboards.
  16. Sat down at computer and stared at the empty white post box.
  17. Cleaned off kitchen table.
  18. Mixed a 55 gallon plastic barrel of Elmer’s glue and water with all the papers that came home from the boys’ school, and made a life size papier-mâché century old sequoia tree in tribute to the forests that were slaughtered in the making of all the papers that come home from school. (Ok, I stretched that a little far. But still.)
  19. Filled Elli’s water bowl.
  20. Kicked the ball for Elli.
  21. Watered the plants.
  22. Overfilled one.
  23. Cussed.
  24. Cleaned it up.
  25. Sat down at computer and stared at the empty white post box.
  26. Kicked the ball for Elli.
  27. Stared off into space and thought and thought about what to write until smoke came out my eyeballs.
  28. Noted that I feel like there is an ant in my left nostril chasing its tail in circles like it’s getting ready for bed. I’m sick of this cold.
  29. Deadheaded the plants.
  30. Swept kitchen floor.
  31. Kicked the ball for Elli.
  32. Repeat last step about a gazillion times. Realized that I’m going to wear out before she does.
  33. Mopped kitchen floor.
  34. Noticed a dirty hand print on the wall. Swiped at it with the mop.
  35. Washed the rest of that wall because the clean spot stuck out too much.
  36. Mopped the bathroom floor.
  37. Sat down at computer and stared at the empty white post box.
  38. Ripped some DVDs.
  39. Stared at the white post box.
  40. Looked through the Ikea catalog.
  41. Put away the folded clean clothes in the living room.
  42. Sat down at the computer and stared at the white post box.
  43. Realized I forgot to dump the mop water. Took care of that.
  44. Sat down and stared at the empty white post box.
  45. Sighed deeply.
  46. Made a list of Things I Did to Procrastinate Blogging This Evening.
  1. Rip it,
  2. roll it, and
  3. punch it, dude.
