I've got no clue what to write about today. Distraction defines my current existence and it's all boring adult shit that's distracting me. They are calling for rain all day, and this is pleasing because I can ditch the whole "getting dressed" routine and putter about in my jammies. Spouse won't be stirring until noon.
Do you ever have that block when you have to do something? Like it isn't bad enough that you procrastinated, but then when all possibilities of further procrastination have been exhausted you simply refuse to accept the reality? And then you resent the task and yourself and you get yourself all worked up into a tizzy of hate? No? Maybe that's just me then.
I used a bread knife to cut a tomato and sliced open my finger instead yesterday. Spouse took the time to lay blame, charmer that he is. I still maintain that serrated edges are required for tomato cutting.
All right, if I keep going it will just degenerate into some kind of scatty talk. I'm going now.
You sliced your finger?!
Did you need stitches?!
I hope it wasn't bad enough for that!?
You know there is an easier to make ketchup, just open the bottle!?
I hope you're alright!?
Ready for tomorrow?!
Try to have fun!?
Re: your frustration with procrastinated tasks - [sounds of reverb and echo] YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
LOL! I think most of us have been there a time or two.
I concur with serated knives for tomatoes. Only way to go. Sorry you were wounded in the battle.
It's raining here too, but I cannot putter in my jammies. err....ahhh...I don't remember where i put them last. (**wink**)

Bread knife is absolutely required when cutting tomatoes
What part of Bread Knife did you not understand? You need a Fruit Knife for Tomatoes. It's like putting Foot Cream on your Face, not that anybody would actually do that! hehe.
I like to putter around in my jammies too. Of course they are just a tank top and boxers, so actually it like puttering around in my underwear...
The start of teaching always leaves me distracted for the first couple of weeks. Then you readjust to the old groove.
Sorry about your finger. I tend to use whatever knife is near to me, so I can hardly offer advice/blame.
Sigh...You're always like this when you come back from someplace fabulous. Tell your spouse you need some "attention".
Martha Stewart says that seraded blades are best for slicing tomatoes.
Awww ... hope you're feeling better today. :S
Ouch - sorry about the finger! But I totally hear you on the procrastination thing today - the weather left me feeling uninspired and uncreative when I had planned to work on a dance piece for my show in September, but once I put the music on I couldn't even be bothered to move! Thank the gods I'm in the midst of a really good book to while away the day!
I was in the same space this morning, hating the rain and procrastinating. No tizzy of hate, though.
Hope your finger's okay!
I've done that before. It sucks.
I still maintain that serrated edges are required for tomato cutting.

maybe it's time to dance again?
isn't it funny how many things you can get done when you are procrastinating on something else? Procrastination station is a lovely, yet self-hating place to be.
Serated edges are required for tomato cutting but how on earth did you cut yourself witha BREAD knife!
Yes, I share your love/hate with procrastination, especially when it comes to something I really, really, REALLY don't want to do. But truth be told, I often find that the anticipation (and procrastination) of the task is far worse than the actual task itself. Why do we torture ourselves so? Maybe its genetic and we can blame our parents.
