i have about a million things to do today. not small things, either. i have to clean and pack and launder and shop for much, MUCH needed groceries and clothes. and travelling and flying make me nervous. so rather than prepare for them, i find myself in a procrastination zone.
oh, and? i also have to write a quiz. i am filling in for the regular pub quiz moderator at the Edinburgh Castle on tuesday night. this may not seem like a big deal, but several (15 - 30) teams play at this quiz and take it pretty seriously. and i love trivia and also take it seriously, which is why composing 70 questions is a little stressful! fun, but stressful.
the following morning i will be flying east to visit my family and my sister's new baby.
note: my otherwise sized 0 sister still hasn't popped yet! she was due four days ago...
she's gotta be close!
and so, because i'm stressed, despite having a page-long list of things to do, do you know what i have accomplished?
yes, that's right. i have spent my morning ORGANIZING MY COMPUTER DESKTOP. because it was certainly in need of organizing. uh huh. NOW i am ready to travel! now i am ready for the quiz! thank god all my pictures are in a folder titled "pictures" instead of just strewn about my desktop willy-nilly. phew! i'm practically done with my errands!
but not only have i spent my morning organizing my computer desktop, i have now wasted more time by BLOGGING ABOUT ORGANIZING MY COMPUTER DESKTOP.
and since i'm not ready to stop, i thought i'd post this funny picture taken of me at christmastime by TheBoy. (i found it on my computer desktop, naturally). it's at union square, and is kinda cool because that lightening-looking thing in the background is a cable car going by.
oh sure, i look completely drunk in this picture but really i was just mid-blink. (uh, not that there hadn't been some cocktails.)
phew. i'm glad i got THAT errand done, too. posting a holiday picture in june. for no reason.
maybe i should log off and go knit now. certainly knitting will help get my apartment clean and my bags packed.
