How I've been procrastinating?

I've been watching The Mighty Boosh. A lot. I'm addicted.

That said, you can also watch The Mighty Boosh. But, if obscure British humor isn't your bag, I suggest you watch Peep Show. Wait. That's also full of obscure British humor (though, admittedly, to a lesser extent). Still. Watch both of them. Ten artful procrastination points to you if you do! (And the points really add up! Just ask people who've collected them.)

Eye!Chewing Gum

Sorry I haven't updated in a week or so. I've been working procrastinating.

Today, I think it would be wise if we all just sat and starred at our computer screens for a couple of hours. After all, it's what we do best. Watch Ashes to Ashes. It's eye!chewing gum and one of the best ways I know how to procrastinate.

Today's suggestion for artful procrastination is to play the Sims 3. If you don't have it, go out an get it.

And figure it out. And figure out how to make custom meshes, please. And when you do that, get back to me. Because I want custom meshes.

This should occupy you and allow you to procrastinate for at least six years.

Grab a pen and a piece of paper.

Step 2

Put pen to paper.

Step 3

Write down thirty reasons why writing on a piece of paper is better than doing whatever you're supposed to be doing. Make them humorous. Please. For your own sanity and the sake of sounding less monotonous.
