My red binders out number my white ones about three to one.
I'm very short on 'round tuits'.

I've been thinking about doing that.

I may be wrong, although that has never happened before, but wouldn't a true dyed
in the wool world champion procrastinator not even bother to make a list?
It seems you have many lists which makes me wonder if you haven't slipped off the
wagon a bit and are creeping closer to actually doing something.

I'm going to make a web site celebrating the dyed in the wool world champion procrastinators. Is there a list somewhere? I'm thinking about googling it later on.

I'd drink to that, only if the decanting of the spirit into the class and then lifting it had not become such an awesome and energy depleting task. Laughing

There could never be a world champion procrastinator, because no-one would ever get round to being considered for the title. It would take a group of people who were not procrastinators to determine who was the champion procrastinator, but, not being procrastinators themselves, they would not truly understand what procrastination was, and, in any case, how would they get candidates? Those candidates would have to be put forward by others, and would never get round to agreeing to be interviewed as to whether they were qualified. Such a title could only be by supposition.

Gosh, it was a lot of work thinking about that one. I believe I need a rest.... Oh Well

I used to just crastinate. Then I decided to go pro.

Tomorrow? That's much too soon a commitment.
Never commit yourself to a specific date. Oh Well

I'm certain that this thread will never conclude unless someone tries to turn it into a political or religion debate.

Heaven forfend that that should happen. Laughing

Yes, it will end once we've had the workshop, if the Good Lord's willing and the creeks don't rise, as old Hank used to say. Winking

I almost forgot about this workshop. When were we planning to think about scheduling it?

I had completely given up on this workshop, because typing the replies had become such an energy-depleting task.

I was just kicking back with a cold Samuel Adams and some unsalted, toasted almonds when I noticed on my
"THINGS TO DO LIST" that I seemed to be way ahead of schedule.
So, I asked myself, "Self, how can this be?"
Then I noticed someone had drawn lines through almost everything I had listed.
But, believe me, I'm not going to spend a lot of time asking around for the guilty party. It would be a waste of time.

Calm down, Rick. There's no need to expend a lot of energy. Everything works itself out in the fullness of time. Oh Well

I don't believe this workshop's ever going to happen, so it's clearly been a total success.

I think it's a little too premature to say that. After all, it's been less than seven years since I announced it. Oh Well

The date for announcement of the date of the workshop could very well be getting closer than it was before it was as far away as it is now. Oh Well

Hi Alan,

I just read your sentence three times.
I think I pulled a muscle.
Thanks a bunch.
