Holy Doughnuts, Batman!

It’s been too long since I’ve posted here. I thought my cantankerous moods were due to the beginnings of carbohydrate withdrawal but apparently it’s writing-related. I don’t know how wise it was to give up carbs- pasta, cakes, cookies, bread, etc- for Lent (and my waistline) but I did it and there’s no going back. I’m eating a lot of chocolate now. Blegh.

So, true to form, I’ve procrastinated to the point where I have about 2 weeks worth of work to cram into 3 days (and an evening). I’m glad I don’t do this for a living because I’d be paying for the heart attack, anti-anxiety and anti-psychotic medicines for everyone who works with me. Heck, I’d probably get a prescription for Lithium thrown for safe measure. While this is great when it’s working well, when it’s not working, life gets pretty hairy. So, as I’ve said in the past, I’ve got to stop the procrastination and get to it.
