On Procrastination

These things take time.  Rome wasn’t built in a day.  At first it was too cold out. Then the ladder was frozen so I couldn’t expand it (I live in a cold climate…this actually did happen).  Though the dark winter months it got dark too early (and I wasn’t about to deal with it at night).  Plus whenever I was willing to risk my neck on a snowy roof there were ice dams to remove.  Finally, I just didn’t want to do it.

But at some point I had to get off my ass and get the job done…so I have taken down the Christmas lights.

  1. Nobody complained.  This is one of the reasons I live on a rural homestead.  Bitch about my Christmas lights straggling into March and I’ll sportingly give you a three step head start before I reach for the shotgun.  Bossy suburban neighborhoods have nightmares about guys like me moving in.
  2. I can leave Christmas lights up until March and still get them down before Congress passes the 2011 budget.
  3. Only nine months before I’m supposed to put those bastards back up.
