How to Procrastinate

Or what I've been doing when not working, studying, or sleeping.

1. Reading. I finally chugged through a few paperbacks I had picked up months ago. I most recently finished reading Sloane Crosley's I Was Told There'd be Cake, which is a fun little collection of biographical essays in the same vein as Laurie Notaro or David Sedaris. Technically I'm also in the middle of a whopper called the GMAT Review. Barf.

2. Similarly, reading blogs. I recently came across Nice Looks Good on You, which I love. The premise is simple - Chelsea documents the nice strangers she comes across in her day to day accompanied by moleskine sketches. I look forward to these little blurbs. Better than PostSecret and FML because she keeps it real.

3. Playing Broken Picture Telephone. Okay, so this time suck I just discovered yesterday. It's way too hilarious and fun and hard to stop playing when I should be doing more important things.

The game expands on the game of telephone by interjecting pictures between messages. As in the game in real life, the original message can become garbled and lost in translation. Hilarity ensues.

Visual for those who are confused:

Unfortunately these are only so fashion related. Maybe I will have to move to another part of the blogosphere.

Right now I'm staring at a bunch of fabric prints on The shopping monster in me is itching to hit the checkout button. Maybe after this week I will get into project making again, for real.


  1. You should check out Junot Diaz's "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao." I love the way he fuses modern slang with Spanish - his writing style is genius. He's giving a book reading + signing tonight at Agnes Scott.

  2. haha..this reminds me of my college days...i was definitely the queen bee of procrastination!

  3. So funny I have that book and I'm starting to read it this weekend!!!


Bonjour y'all! Thanks for stopping by.
