extraordinary procrastination: beyond the call of duty

Seriously....don't you love how I say I am going to do something (i.e. my last post) and then I just disappear for nearly 2 weeks? It seems like whenever I tell myself I need to do something, I end up doing everything else but that particular thing. I think I am going through my teenage rebellion---15 years late. I skipped it the first time around. I didn't have any of the fun that all the normal teens have... You know...
...alcohol poisoning, girls gone wild, teen pregnancy... I just really had no fun at all. So now the revolt from my sheltered teen years is coming out by rebelling against myself.
You are welcome mom and dad.
I do fully intend to write that book list. I just wished I would have realized that there was actual work involved before I opened my trap.
Oh well.
And speaking of name is being passed around at my husband's workplace for my mad skillz as a web designer. I guess better that than having it passed around for other reasons. Although I think we should all be proud of our talents wherever they may pun intended.
Without giving away any major information I ended up getting a call from someone that wants me to design a sign for his storefront in our local mall. I have already submitted the design to him and now we are emailing back and forth to fine tune it. Imagine...if he accepts the final sign will be seen by millions of shoppers, punk teenagers and snot nosed whiny kids.
Ahhh, sweet success.
But before success I need to do the actual work. And I am afraid procrastination is not an option as he has a deadline tomorrow...luckily I also happen to be a procrastinator who likes to get things done in the 11th hour.


  1. holy awesomeness!!!!!!

    by the way, I skipped that teenage rebellion thing too. After reading this post I'm going to inform my husband that he can expect me to go into that phase sometime around my late 20's early 30's.

  2. How exciting! I hope it all works out for you (to get the job). You have many wonderful gifts.

  3. THat is awesome! Congrats! And about the procrastination, nothing wrong with putting things off(sometimes:))

  4. Groovybabe: Thanks..!

    Mamcita K.: Well hopefully you don't rebel against him ;)

    Linda: Thanks...I am not so sure about my gifts after the millionth revision on this project so far.

    Gustogirl: yeah, I try to keep the procrastination in check...but sometimes it can be a mental lifesaver!

  5. YEA! You're back, I don't know what to do without your good dose of sarcasm around! It just nice for someone to say what I often think!:)Ahhh, procrastination??? Or we just do things better under pressure....That's what I like to say! :P

  6. Michelle: I definitely work best under pressure BUT I wouldn't mind working ahead of schedule every once in a while just to mix things up :)

  7. That picture is great! Your blog is always good for a laugh. (I mean that in a good way)
