Dollars to Donuts! Har har.

Donuts signed a contract! Someone must have used the "dollars to Donuts" thing already in reference to this, right? Right? How about Las Vegas buffets as a motivating factor to sign? (The Kings play the Avs tomorrow night in Vegas)

Winner of an Ig Nobel prize, Structured Procrastination! Excerpt:
All procrastinators put off things they have to do. Structured procrastination is the art of making this bad trait work for you. The key idea is that procrastinating does not mean doing absolutely nothing. Procrastinators seldom do absolutely nothing; they do marginally useful things, like gardening or sharpening pencils or making a diagram of how they will reorganize their files when they get around to it. Why does the procrastinator do these things? Because they are a way of not doing something more important. If all the procrastinator had left to do was to sharpen some pencils, no force on earth could get him do it. However, the procrastinator can be motivated to do difficult, timely and important tasks, as long as these tasks are a way of not doing something more important.

Right now I'm procrastinating work, but given that I'm writing this post, trying to set my Tivo online to record some baseball playoff games and thinking about Donuts' fat face, I'm not even doing anything marginally useful.

Sharks played the Canucks again last night. It was a surprisingly noisy crowd and had a regular season feel to it (on the Sharks side anyway, because of all the regulars) and a couple of fights. Greiss was good and I had a little scare when Demers went off the ice after a hit, but he came back. The Canucks announcers said that he was on the bubble cos' we also have Colin White and Jim Vandermeer. :(

I went to a biometrics appointment yesterday for renewing my green card and they were a model of efficiency. :O Took my fingerprints and my photo and I was in and out in 15 minutes and everyone was really nice and friendly!

our beat guys on twitter looooved how loud your crowd was :)

Aww, yay! At first I thought the game was in Vancouver and I was all confused why everyone was cheering when the Sharks did good things hahaha.

I think procrastinators aren't given enough credit for avoiding things that make them what to chew off their own feet to escape the bear trap.

I have some positive reinforcement to procrastinate as I find that when I finally get around to working on the task, it takes me about half the time that it would if I'd started early. So really, I'm just being efficient! :P
