Procrastination - Random Thoughts to Keep Me From Actually Working

Well, I guess it's just one of those days.

I can't seem to keep myself focused, and I want to be doing work, but at the same time I don't. I don't even remember what kind of things I'm supposed to be doing! I don't want to think that hard right now.

So, how about them Canucks?

They totally tanked. They had a chance to make the playoffs and they blew it. Those Orcas just sprayed some hot air at the Edmonton Oilers along with a little bit of good ol' fashioned ocean spray, and it failed to get past Dwayne Roloson, the old guy who's destined to be a backup goalie for... like forever. The playoff game was on the line, and this fossil stone-walled them. Maybe our guys in blue and green should go work on their golf swings with him at the Tyrell Museum. Yeesh.

But anyways, my favorite players have made it to the playoffs. Jean-Sebastian Giguere? He and his Ducks made it. They didn't win Pacific, but that's not as easy as it used to be. Paul Stastny? Thanks to the fantastic returns of Peter Forsberg and Adam Foote (more so the former than the latter), along with the continued strong play by returned injurees (is that a word?) Joe Sakic, Paul Stastny, and that dude from Edmonton, the Avalanche as buried the competition (sorry, couldn't resist) and swept into the playoffs in nothing less than sixth place. Take that, Calgary.

But enough hockey talk. I was just looking at the fees that I'm going to have to pay to got to Queen's University. Not TOO bad, considering how much my buddy has to pay to get into the commerce program. $10,000 a year! No wonder it's the best business program in Canada. The students get to play around with real money! Res fees don't look too bad, $4600 for me and my friend to room and board at that fine Kingston institution. It's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick I guess. ;)

Well, I think that the only answer to getting over this incredible urge to do NOTHING is to write on my blog (check), play a computer game (Can Do, just like our nuclear reactors!..... never mind...), and eat some food with my family..... or just by myself. Who knows. Anyways, lets go work on number two option to get rid of procrastination!

World Peace

I'm totally having one of those days right now too - I'm also sick so that is not helping my modivation. So I'm responding to all your blogs that have built up.

Reduced to hockey talk? Well, it is the most popular Canadian sport. ^^ My brother is a Flames fan because he was born in Calgary. He's relearning how to skate now too...

So you're going to Queens? Have fun! I'm here at UVic because my program isn't offered anywhere else. Computer game ? ... ... its one of those days.
