When lecturers forget about Pavlov...

I was thinking about procrastination earlier*.

Not 4'33" was pure procrastination. I started it when I'd taken a few days off (five, if you include the weekend) to get something together to send off with my application for the MA. I did nothing; I just wrote the blog. Then I ended up including a link to it as part of the application. Why not, I thought, people seemed to like it.

Once I'd been on the course for a few weeks, I was told that the blog had clinched my acceptance onto the course.

[Sighs] And I wonder why I have a procrastination problem...


*Meta-procrastination?

I agree. I still don't know who was who, but it was fun, wasn't it?

Anyway, I'm back and off again. Still don't know where to, but...

Thanks, both of you :)

It was a lot of fun; I may revisit it someday soon... I nearly did the other night, in fact. Didn't, but nearly.

Anyway, have fun on your travels...
