It’s a rainy day. A perfect day to conquer a pile of paperwork. Mmm. I think that perhaps I should first start writing down ideas for my planned book: “Procrastination Techniques From Around The World” (ehem, while the ideas are still fresh).
Hold on. When last did I check the hair growth on my face? I know it’s nearly Movember but even so. I’d better tweeze my chin. I can’t be seen at home like this, really. Better to do it now incase more whiskers grow.
I really think that I’ll make some progress with that paperwork today. I’ve already prepared my brain to think laterally by spending a couple of hours looking at pictures of Heath Ledger, Javier Bardem and Gerard Pique online. This will stand me in good stead when it comes to using the net as a reference tool. I’ve also done my best to find interviews on YouTube where the interviewer doesn’t say more than the interviewee. There are none.
Has that pile of paperwork inflated in the last couple of minutes? I could swear it looked smaller a moment a go. It’s definitely on the top of my to-do list but what kind of person would I be if I didn’t first update my social networking status and check for messages? As it is, due to my twitter inertia I discovered too late that Ryk Neethling was on TV this morning. He was up early, I was up early, would could have shared a moment.
But I missed it, so to cheer me up I thought that I might start a bit of a conversation on Facebook with the status update of: Foolish Friday? Think of a song title then add "in my big pants" to the end and see how long you can keep a straight face. I'll go first. Smooth Criminal in my big pants. Turns out only 4 people found it as hilarious as me.
I understand that before you start any paperwork, it’s important to exercise your brain with a bit of reading. So I’ve just dedicated some time to perusing a few dictionaries and thesauruses and have had quite a few revelations. Napalm is not a moisturizer. Imagine my shock. Who would name something so nasty so nicely? And apparently, angry and hungry are the only two words that end in ‘gry’. But one will often lead to the other so I think that they need to include ‘hangry’ which is hungry and angry at the same time. I also wonder why the word reckless is reckless when it really should be reckmore?
Did I mention that there’s number work involved in this paperwork? Which brings me to the YouTube clip of ‘Miss USA 2011’ entrants who were asked if Math should be taught in Schools. Its not fair to ask a trick question like that. I mean we all know that number-crunchers and Mathematicians are just rotten showoffs.
Before I get stuck into those figures, just remind me again what happens when the left and right column don’t balance? Hang on. Is that fluff I see on my keyboard? I’d better go get the ear-buds.
