What would you do...

...if you had three-quarters of a book left to read, a book you were going to get a small payment for reviewing? A review that's due on Wednesday. And, oh, by the way, I've never written a book review in my life.

Well, if you were me, you'd watch a recorded episode of Good Eats ('cause I do love me some AB). You'd email back and forth with Beth, who so kindly offered to knock up a new blog layout for you, exchanging ideas and pictures, for a good two hours. And you'd work on a post in which you attempt to wax lyrical about how you were up reading (The Order of the Phoenix - most definitely NOT the book I'm supposed to be reviewing) until 2 a.m. and when you shut off your handy dandy book light, you noticed that a couple of fire flies had some how invaded your kitchen and were currently doing the tango in your bedroom doorway.

Procrastination, thy name is Julia.

*sigh*

I am totally relating to you right at this moment. Not that I have any deadlines, but there are things I should be doing to prepare for what's ahead.

But nooo... (See what the 'net police do to me?)

Hello MB,

To get some things done, one must have a perfect plan. It's not good for your health, if you wake up till 2a.m everyday.

Shame on you a procrastinating Scorpio! Seriously I think we all can relate. Your blog is lovely, I love the layout. You are a very imaginative creature.

Speed reading is my one freaky talent, so I'd be ok.

Hope you're able to knock off most of the book today. Would it be terrible to read a chapter or two in the middle and then the end and review based on that?

LMAO...you sound like me. Ergo, I have no good advice for you.

Well done. Sounds exactly how I roll. It's never too late to procrastinate.

But procrastination is the mother of my greatest works.

Really, I swear.

And hello, what good muggle would not be catching up on Harry Potter right now?

Who cares about a book, which Good Eats was it?

Major Bedhead said...

The substitution one - informative, although most of the stuff I knew already. Still. I got to satisfy my geek love for AB.

My husband is a Good Eats freak, too. I keep teasing him about how he loves Alton more than me.
