Procrastination Station

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.

yes, definitely.

  6. Kristy,

    Have a great trip! Don't forget to pack the baby blanket you knitted. And, please post a picture of the new baby. There is just nothing better than a new baby, new life is truly a miracle.

    Your nickname--kiki, so cute! My sis had an imaginary friend with that name.

    Dad, you sound sexy.

  8. Wow.. that's quite the belly. Poor sis.

    Just dropped by to say I'm glad you're alive. I was a little worried some crazy IIF would get you at the party. I even blogged about it.

    Yeah... pathetic blog addict, nice to meet you.

  14. Hey, Kristy,

    For some reason the text of your posting may be set too wide -- it's bumping down very low on the page. Just fyi -- I enjoy reading your posts as always. Loved the picture of your sis. Hope you're officially an "aunt" by now!

  15. it's the "lightening-like" and/or "mid-blink" text that is causing your post to be so far down. i think.

    and yes, pls can you post the questions after trivia tonight? i am a fool for trivia. (i should add that to my 100 list)

  16. don't you need to post some more to gain more adulation? the masses won't return your love unless you feed them.

  17. no new posts in two days. hmmmmmmmmm. that can mean only one thing: could you be an auntie?
    best of luck to the entire family and especially your sister.
    yay!

  18. Well hell. Apparently, she popped. I bet she didn't get to do trivia night. How am I to live vicariously through K if she doesn't post to tell me what I am doing?

    BTW let me be the first to say, it's a girl, sis has no ass. I think boys give a big ass. Um unless it is the other way...
