Procrastination I'm soaking in it. Cup of tea?
That was awesome, thanks.

No, but a cup of insta-hot buttered rum: take a pat of butter, a splash of vanilla, a dash of nutmeg, a smidge of ground clove, a healthy shake of cinnamon, a tablespoon of brown sugar and place them all at the bottom of a mug. Heat water in the kettle. When the water is hot, pour it over your little mix. Stir until the butter and sugar have melted. Liberally dose with a shot of rum.
Procrastination? What's that?

+1 for the "soaking in it" reference. I often use that saying and feel a little sad when most people don't recognize it.

I'll give +1 to whoever explains the reference.

What does my +1 get me?

That was brilliant.

I've just had a camomile tea, but thanks.

A man can do anything provided it is not what he's supposed to be doing. Hense my oddly large herb garden for a blackthumb and suspiciously clean bathroom for an unrepentant slob.

St. Expedite is the Saint of Anti-Procrastination. Crows in Roman times where thought to be agents of slowness or delay, cause they screamed "caw caw!" or "cras cras", "tomorrow" in Latin. St. Expedite is commonly depicted with his foot on a crow, holding a cross engraved with "HODIE", latin for "TODAY".

I am not making this up even a little.

I had my cds arranged by colour for a while. It looks nice but i don't recommend it, it's hard remembering what the spine colour something is. Of course now i never look at the damn things.
As for the plus ones, is this D&D, ebay or Orwell? I demand double plus good, a high charisma and free shipping.
It's good to know what saints name to use in vain, but creative swearing will just kill more time i should be using to do the damn things.
I leave one thingie with you, St. Expeditie. Let's see how long you can keep it from the crows.
