The Many Tools of Procrastination

Lately, I have wanted to do nothing but avoid my to-do list. I seem to have way more things to do than I have time to do them in. But, there are so many many things I’d rather be doing than working. Like…anything that doesn’t involve work.


For one, I would love to sit down and watch some mindless TV. Some shows I love are recently back.

12 Monkeys – A sci-fi show where the hero must go back in time in order to stop a plot to release a deadly virus, destroying most of humanity.

Outlander – Based on the book series by Diana Gabaldon, the story is of a woman who travels back in time to 18th Century Scotland.

Game of Thrones – Based on the very boring George RR Martin’s series. Lots of mischief and mayhem and death.

Stitchers – A comedy involving a program designed to help solve crimes by reading the memories of the recently dead victims.

And then there is always Masterpiece Mystery and Masterpiece Theatre on IPTV on Sunday nights.

Video Games

I’ve also had an urge to play video games. That rarely happens, because when I play, I have to play until I finish the game. This, unfortunately, is not conducive to getting anything done.

I was looking at Assassin’s Creed until Declan warned me off that series. Here is his review of Assassin’s Creed and  Assassin’s Creed 2.

Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider have been recommended, so those might be my next procrastination investment.


A week ago I went to local library’s annual book sale fundraiser and picked up a few (19 to be exact) books. Most were books or authors in genres that I don’t normally read and a couple that I do. These are added to the 5 books I haven’t read of the books I brought back from New York. The dozen or so books I acquired from the used Catholic Bargain Center and Goodwill. They are also mostly authors and genres I don’t normally read. So, I have plenty of material to procrastinate by if I so choose.
