Procrastination, Experimentation

by jen on January 29, 2007

Apparently the best ways to beat the post-vacation blues is to continue to avoid any school responsibilities and explore new procrastination venues.

For instance, embroidery!

This is my first project — a soon-to-be-housewarming tea towel for my California-born-and-raised brother Jeff and his wife Jen, who are learning how to scrape Michigan ice off their windshields. I am using Jenny Hart’s Stitch-It Kit, which actually includes some kick-ass iron-patterns of SKULLS and PIRATE CRAP, but Jeff and Jen are saps, so they get flowers. Suckas!

Also, homemade vodka!


So easy! And such a cute gift for parties.

And Penny? I hate you and your damn Sodoku. Which I still can’t pronounce correctly, but this did not seem to discourage me from playing nineteen hundred and forty games yesterday. I am never having you over again. Until next weekend.

And finally, the worst idea I have ever had: letting Fred help me make the bed.

Oooo. You can make your own version of Persephone’s Bees — pomegranate vodka, lemon juice, and honey. Shake it all together and serve up. And Fred looks much more helpful than Natasha; she clutches at the linens.

Soduko is a great procrastination tool. I reason with myself that i can waste time doing it because it is good excercise for my brain. When I am old and smart I will thank myself for procrastinating.
