How Not To Get Work Done, or, How I Spent My Friday Night

[ #17258 ]
  • Come home from work, get on IRC
  • Have friends call wanting to come over
  • Tell them to come in an hour, after you get back from the grocery
  • After the grocery but before friends arrive, start reading book on assembly programming
  • Meanwhile, have someone on IRC decide to start a MUSH and invite you in as a wizard
  • Realize that your old MOO coding skills are pretty much gone and that you need to read the fleet of MUSH docs.
  • Have someone else on IRC talk you into writing a scifi story with them
  • Ponder getting that utility suite you promised everyone 2 weeks ago done tomorrow
  • Ponder getting the web interface you promised your wife 2 weeks ago done tomorrow
  • Call other friends, decide to spend tomorrow watching bad movies
  • Write about your procrastination activities on use.perl

  • While it sounds like you have a bit of guilt over some commitments you haven't been able to keep, I wouldn't say you were procrastinating, based on this list.

    Looks to me like you were busy having a life.

    You know, there are sometimes other things to do than program on a Friday night...
