Jesus h Keyrist....I read number 9 as recipes and thought to myself well that won't take long. Just tell the school you've decided to quit and they won't have to pay you for the "work' you haven't which is probably the same amount for all the work you've done throughout the years.
Get to the recipes they are way more fun than receipts which are total reminders of unnecessary things purchased with insufficient funds.

...and the beautiful thing is, it'll all get done -- or it won't! -- but somehow, it'll all be fine.

I far prefer list #2 to list #1 which is why I am reading blogs and drinking coffee instead of doing my day job or all the things needed for the project work I have taken on to do "in my spare time". Apparently sleep, showering and bill paying are also activities for my spare time, which is why I never have any.

I am so with you!

Avoiding what you don't want to do? My house is never cleaner than when I am faced with unpleasant tasks.

And good luck.

You crack me up, woman! Pissing away time AGAIN! I love it! I actually laughed out loud when I got to the second list! REALLY. OUT. LOUD.

I HAVE 180 ESSAYS TO READ! Here's what I'm actually doing: Lying on the couch, computer on my lap, reading BLOGS and contemplating a nap which (if I take it) will keep me up all night long! But I'm so very sleepy right this minute.

Love you.

I think either way it's the same multitasking credits...

Drama Mama said...

Dude. I want one of your iTunes mixes.

I dunno, after the first list...number two is definitely more preferable.

Jess said...

Great lists, perfect. And, excuse me, YOU should NOT be preparing for Mother's Day. Whose job is that??

Hi, I just bought my singing bowl. I am really happy and I got an antique bowl for a steal. A good place to shop is http://www.tibetansoul.com/shop/tibetan-singing-bowls-shop/

All the best.
