unstructured procrastination

N/b: Read my last post and please relate.

19th people, next weekend and I'm still doing nothing.

When I told Fara emir (my ad-hoc party planner.Ever the efficient one that woman) I haven't bought or did anything, she conveyed what Azizah mgs told me :
tu lawyer gila.

Apehal procrastinate2 nih?

Intentionally I waited with Farah Irina after breakfast just to see her off in her firm's shuttle van (you lucky devils you. You got your own van.Schweet) when I know I've a submission to file (but hey the other side served us 4 days late so I'm entitled to pend four days too) when the thing just got in yesterday.

But tell me its fair I have to file according to the arranged date just because Puan wants it that way? Banyak cantek. Its the other side's application so it is my pleasure to procrastinate.

After waving goodbye and a thumbs up to Farah, I jaywalked to the parking lot and seeing all those shiny BMWs and Benzes I suddenly remembered I haven't for the life of me, washed my car so I didn't go straight back to office. Hey, I had been delying washing the poor car for the two months, ohkay?

Even after washing the car near UM, I purposedly waited in the car to try finish reading 'HP and the Deathly Hallows' (yawn) and answering private calls (one from zetty. Good girl got 7As and 2Bs for her PMR trial exam) (Khalis called and told me the big happy news. Flying colours too) and the screaming Fara Emir (sorry la farzeera I am a bad customer, I will try and ask my mother what color scheme I want and how many dulangs we are expecting).

And yes Fara, we'll go shopping for clothes this weekend, no not Saturday, I've a friend's wedding, next week loh? Okay okay I'm not crazy i know 19th IS next week. What to do I'm lazy for dress-hunting, Fine. Sunday.This Sunday's superb. Okay Fara.Thanks.

I got in the office at 1, seeing the Himalaya-high bundles of submission the other side had served me (do you have to say that much for one itsy bitsy issue?) called Nabilah Hani and yak yaked for a good thirty minutes before realising its my lunch hour.Ah work can wait. I'm hungry.

That's just not the things I delay for fun.
Sometimes I wake up so late because I felt cheated from my 8 hours sleep when clients call. Hoho you should see my room.

Lets just hope that all this postponement of works don't make us irresponsible persons, just affirming that we ordinary people liking to cheat time to make us feel a lil bit entitled to do so.

We work so hard, kan?

I don't procrastinate on purpose. Serious.
I've only got no time to panic.
But I swear I will deliver on time.

Hey. Afterall, datelines were never my ally. They stab me from behind my back, like creatures creeping and spying on me when I stop to delay, with their knife ready like a cupid with the bow aim at your back.
Well, you procrastinate when you can. Not all the time.
Hahaha.. af, talking!

If you've heard of structured procrastination (total rubbish I tell you), thats just an excuse anyway. Imagine having a diary of what and when to procrastinate.
This is the essence of what I call structured procrastination, an amazing strategy I have discovered that converts procrastinators into effective human beings, respected and admired for all that they can accomplish and the good use they make of time. All procrastinators put off things they have to do. Structured procrastination is the art of making this bad trait work for you. The key idea is that procrastinating does not mean doing absolutely nothing. Procrastinators seldom do absolutely nothing; they do marginally useful things, like gardening or sharpening pencils or making a diagram of how they will reorganize their files when they get around to it.

Guess I belong to the orthodox procrastinator club, huh? hahaha
What about you?
