Of this, I am now certain. Please bear with me.
In an email to my mate earlier today I wrote the following:
So I’m procrastinating right now. I should be delivering papers but instead I’m reading. What, you ask? Blogs. Anything that’s short enough that I don’t feel as though I’m actually getting into something. Because that would be serious procrastinating rather than the ‘I can stop doing this at any given moment because it’s short’ procrastinating. Hey, that sounds like a blog entry, doesn’t it? I may just copy and paste later.
And now that I have another million and one other things to do, what am I doing instead? You get the idea.
While I was walking around the block delivering my papers (yes, I did finally do them) I thought more about blogging and the effect it has had on me since I started a little over a month ago. It’s addictive! It keeps me up at night and better yet, gives me something to think about when I’m delivering papers! Hey, it’s sapping my energy! And for energy, I need… food! But do I? Not as much as you might think. I’m just a teensy bit overweight.
So then why is blogging better than food? (I had to get around to it sooner or later.) Before I discovered this wonderful way to avoid the things I should be doing, I would graze. Procrastination meant weight gain.
Therefore I triumph in the logical conclusion that blogging is indeed better than food.
At the very least, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.
