Coffee Shop Chatter - The Fine Art Of Procrastinating

Pin It

This post was supposed to go up yesterday, but I was so organised writing lists about being organised that I wasn't organised to actually hit publish on this. 

Yeah I get the irony. 

Moving on.


I am doing my usual procrastination trick today... I am sitting in a coffee shopping drinking coffee and making lists about what I should pack and what I need to do before I head off to QLD tomorrow.

I should be at home and actually putting the stuff on my list into my suitcase but instead... well a certain coffee shop by the beach had a salmon brioche with my name on it, and it was calling me and who am I to ignore such a call?

So I have laid out everything on my bed ready to go but when I say everything, I mean literally everything because I am really bad at making decision and narrowing down choices.

I do the old "I'll take this just in-case" and "Oh but I might feel like wearing this instead of that" and then there are the extra couple of outfits required in case I spill my coffee / breakfast / lunch or cocktail down the front of me. That's something I'm also really bad at - actually getting food and drink into my mouth.

Meh If it's good enough to eat then it's good enough to wear.


Right! (I say as I fish a piece of cucumber out of my cleavage).

The other first world problem I have is I think I may have just jinxed myself in that I laid out a whole load of white clothes and according to my calculations (or lack there of) that time of the month could arrive anytime between now and ... oh the next 30 days.

I am awful of keeping track of that time of the month.

I mean it's not hard is it?

Generally I know roughly where I am in my cycle based on how many people I want to stab or hug on any given day. But despite promising myself I will write down the actual dates every month, I never do and so once a month you will usually find me trawling through my diary trying to remember where I was during that time last month so I can figure out when I can expect it to arrive again.

Hence why there is a shitload of white clothes in my packing pile - because basically I have no idea when I am due. Although I suspect Murphy's Law will ensure it is due at a time when the only thing I have to wear is something white.

I think I need to go home and rethink my options.

I think I need to go home and actual be productive rather than sit here and write lists about how to be productive.

One more coffee...

Are you a Planner Packer or a chuck it in kind of gal?
Do you keep track of that time of the month on a calender or just sort of guess?
