How do you spell "procrastination"?

Quick, better look it up, now where's the dictionary, I think its still in a box somewhere, gotta find it, can't work without it.....

My essay is already 2 days late, Pirate Jim is asleep, my Beloved is cleaning (one very good reason, of many, why he's my Beloved!!), I have clear air to write, and damn it, I can't!

Not very excited by the topic (emissions trading to mitigate climate change), but its all in my head and just won't come out. I strongly suspect this procrastination thing might be all in my head too, but if I admit that then I havent got any reason not to write, have I?

I've read all the blogs - ALL of them, even the ones I read last night while I was avoiding working researching more material (because I can't write a word until I am satisfied I know EVERYTHING about a topic) and the ones who havent posted in weeks, worked out which train we need to take from Brilon-Wald to Paris, tidied my desk, had 3 cups of tea and a ham sandwich, and now I'm contemplating cleaning the bathroom.

Egad. Maybe I should blog my essay.....

Right. Focus. You're a professional, you can do this.

Now where is that bleach.....?

tee hee. I'm surprised you're still awake after reading all that stuff. Yawn. I'm glad someone out there is thinking about these issues though. I just don't want to.

I know - write an essay about the swaps basket, then global change "yarn" and "needles" to "emissions". Should work a treat. ;)

LOL! Yeah, turn your essay into a Blog, and then you'll get through it no worries. Does bribery with chocolate work?
