Completely Not Subtle Attempt at Procrastination

I am working from home today so that the phone company can come install another phone line, so that I can move home, permanently, soon. Huzzah!

However, this puts me in a bit of a conundrum. When I am at work, I work. When I am at home, I look around at the mountain of mail, the random cords, cat toys, tissues, and iPod accessories, dust bunnies, laundry, bills, and bits of paper and articles I have saved/cut out to put into a scrapbook, and think, “Perhaps I should attend to all that before I start in on these spreadsheets for work.”

And before I know it, it’s 10:15 and I have successfully updated my scrapbook and am covered in glue (I still get a kindergarten-esque amount of joy from peeling it off my skin) and sparkly-pen and have not really done very much work.

Sigh.

Working from home may be trickier (but more glitter-filled!) than I realized.

Meanwhile, we got more snow last night, so I used that as an excuse to not go to yoga and to order out for dinner, instead. Also, I am really sick of the snow, and since I don’t have a ski pass this season, I really see no need for it. What happened to Global Warming, man?

I'm sure working from home for me would be totally useless.

Unless of course I were working for myself. Which is the goal, I think!

Don't panick, but I heard that Global Warming actually means that everything will just get WORST. Summer will be Hotter and Winter will be Colder. And it will be all around more humid! I used to have hopes about Global Warming, but I am now of the opinion that Global Warming sucks!

I love peeling glue! Oh my God! Glitter-Glue must be heaven to peel...must try!

Yeah, I read that global warming will actually lead to the next ice age . . . yes, people were just a fun and temporary experiment

My philosophy is that when I work from home I save the commute time and tarting up for work time, so it evens out with the farting around time at home

I am so confused by Global Warming... it hurts my head.

However, glittery spreadsheets--that I can get behind!

Brendan- Working for yourself as... a rock star with a knack for journalism?

Lily- Suck-tastic snowstorms. That is so not what I wanted to hear.

Diane- Smart thinking. :::taps head with forefinger and points at you:::

Angela- Let's start a business. I don't care what, let's just make sure it involves a lot of glitter. (not so much the spreadsheets.)
