Thursday Thirteen #10

Thirteen Things MICHELLE HASKER does to procastinate:

1- Check my email. My family email, my friend email, both of author emails, myspace email, the rarely used email I probably spend 3 or more hours a day hitting refresh LOL

2- Wash dishes. Makes me feel like I got a lot of cleaning done, and the sink is close to the laptop. I also wash the top of the stove a lot, even if I've not cooked. Glass tops need lots of cleaning, don't ya know? hehe

3- I'd check my email again, but I already said that, so watching Doctor Who videos at You Tube.

4- Watching tv episodes I've taped for when I have time to watch them.

5- Read. Even if it is the Yahoo! news articles that are on their home page, or a book or ebook.

6- Talk on IM for hours. Play backgammon with Tina since I forget how to play canasta and I'm the one who taught her. *bangs head

7- Yell at kids. It's my new favorite past time, don't you know!

8- Dusting. I've started dusting in order to procastinate. Well, one of my children IS asthmatic so you know I have to keep a clean house...yeah right.

9- Read and reread the story I'm supposed to be working on.

10- Tweak. I can tweak a story to an early grave if I'm bored enough.

11- Play either animal crossing or princess peach. I've beaten Princess Peach once and am on the second time through. I have paid off all my mortgages on Animal Crossing and have the golden statue of me. Needless to kids hate me.

12- I'd check email again, but we've been there, done that. I will go to Yahoo! games to see if there is anything new to play. And if not then I find my sudoku book and get busy solving.

13- Last but NOT least, as I have many ways to procastinate. I clean my bathroom. You could drink out of my toilet on any given day. Not that you want to, but my dog recommends it.

Stien & Andi said...

Hehehe, this list is great! Soooooo recognizable! No, really, it is... *scratchs head*

Anyway, happy TT to you! :D


Just D said...

I only wish I could say that cleaning anything was a way that I procrastinate. I usually find something else to do so that I can procrastinate on the cleaning!

m said...

you put things off until... me too!
I give you an A++. I prefer to clean the bathroom instead of dishes, laundry, dusting...

my short list of stuff to put off another day:
