  • I consider myself a procrastinista. Housework, homework, making appointments to get my car inspected. Washing dishes, unloading the dishwasher, laundry, bathing the dog. Definitely getting groceries. Updating apps on my phone, cleaning out the fridge, shoveling dog mines in the back yard.

    Wow: it just hit me -- I only procrastinate about things I hate doing. Maybe I should give up a few of those annoyances and procrastinate less. But then again, the dog stinks, the toilet doesn't scrub itself, and I'll never get that dream job.

    Cowbird is my accomplice to procrastination. If I go down, I'm taking you with me.
