I have all the copies I think I need (though the solicitor will doubtless disagree) for Number One Son, and have successfully not filled in any forms today. I know this isn’t really the attitude, but I’ve always taken the attitude that in these things it is easier to reduce the target rather than work harder. It’s n attitude that hasn’t always won favour with other people, but it works for me.
My excuse is that I had a disturbed night’s sleep and rose early to write poetry so had no time for forms and such stuff. In fact I rose at 7.30, worked till 9.30 (a variety of time-wasting exercises) and made breakfast when Julia came down.
At that point we watched TV, did the washing, had afternoon tea and, in my case, napped. We watched The Hippopotamus, which was adequately funny and had enough mystery in it to keep me involved. It’s originally a novel by Stephen Fry and is a sort of cross between Withnail & I and Gosford Park.
After that I made a simple meal of pizza, using ready made bases, and that was really the end of the day. I have done a bit on WP and |Julia made the sandwiches for tomorrow. I didn’t ask what she filled them with and look forward to a surprise tomorrow.. We ended up watching a programme about celebrities in he dark and had hot chocolate.
As usual, I say “celebrities” but I don’t have a clue who three of them are.This could be due to my lack of celebrity knowledge, or it could be down to them not really being celebrities. The best one in there is Chris McCausland, not only is his career buoyant, but he’s blind, so he’s at home in the dark. I like him I find him funny and I find it poignant that he’s looking after the others. But I don’t think tht even he will persuade me to watch any more of the programme.
And that was my Sunday.
I remember Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie from “Jeeves and Wooster”. 🙂
They were made for it, though I do prefer the books as Wodehouse on TV is almost always overacted (which, to be fair, is the way it is written). I can calm it down if I’m reading..
I would like to have been at the pitching meeting for that TV show you watched.
It’s actually hard to imagine anything that wouldn’t be commissioned these days. We have few inhibitions these days and very little remains of the quality threshold. I may yet succeed in getting my Celebrity Cannibal Survivl Camp made. 24 Celebrities including some of the larger and more annoying ones, abandoned ona remote island and when they open all the crates up they find a massive cooking pot and a book on anatomy . . .
Film it using drones and go back in six months. See who looks well fed and who has disappeared . . .
Will the fat celebs be eaten or will they eat the others?
I didn’t finish procrastinating yesterday – so I’ll continue today.
Nicely drifted through
I was quite pleased by my consistent lack of effort from A to nearly A. Very restful . . .
I wonder if it would be financially worthwhile to offer your services as a procrastinator advisor although it would be necessary to keep records and send out accounts.
In my experience, my lack of urgency in pursuing payment is a definite disadvantage in business. Perhaps I should think about it a little longer before launching the new business. 🙂
Pizza, hot chocolate, poetry. Tomorrow or the next day, the forms?
Forms are mainly filled in, so tomorrow looks like a good bet. 🙂
