I Am That Dude...

A blogger friend, Mama Belle posted this video the other day. I'll admit, I almost never watch a video on blogs because, well, that would take time. But she mentioned this one was only 1 minute, so I took the plunge.



I watched it. And I had an epiphany...of sorts..

I am that cartoon dude. His logic makes complete sense to me. You don't have to watch the video...but if you do, THAT is what I look like during the day.

I thought I was only a "rare-only-on-certain-occasions" procrastinator. Not true.

I viewed procrastinators as not getting anything done or completely done until the last minute. And I get all kinds of stuff done. All kinds of stuff that I don't really need to do in order to avoid that which I do need to do. It can even be something that I ENJOY doing, I'll still likely put it off with other busyness.

For example, I really need to paint the trim-thingy in the bathroom TODAY. Yet I think it will be easier to paint the trim if I first clean up the kitchen and throw a load of laundry in. But I should finish making the scotcharoo bars because then I can do the dishes all at once. And then I'm distracted by the bars...which go great with coffee...which go great with writing a blog post. And here I sit. No laundry going. Pans in the sink. No paint in sight.

I did, however, consume the coffee and chocolatey/peanutbuttery bar of goodness.

  1. In the end, coffee and chocolate are all that really matter anyway, RIGHT??:)

  4. Lindy and Ethan say I do that all the time which is why I'm almost always running behind schedule and late. :)

  13. You're pregnant. You ate. Mission accomplished. Right?

    You can paint tomorrow.

    I'm terrible at this. I do the very same thing. I can't even put away a pile of clothes without doing 20 other things before, during, and between.

  17. This is so my issue as well. It takes a lot of self discipline to be focused long enough to get done the one thing I started to do, that I usually end up rewarding my efforts with a chocolaty-peanutbuttery bar of goodness so I think you are on the right track.

    yay for consuming the coffee and chocolatey/peanutbuttery bar!!

  19. Wow. That is totally me. We could have been seperated at birth. Your day sounds absolutely logical to me in a completely-not-logical-to-anyone-in-their-right-mind kind of way.
