How to kick unproductivity up the arse.

Wake up whenever the sky looks grey, in this instance 11 AM. Decide to go run a bath so I don't look a mess.

Look at the sky as I get out of the bath, the same shade of grey. Decide to write in LJ and decide to get £20 out of the bank to send to

Wake up whenever the sky looks grey, in this instance 11 AM. Decide to go run a bath so I don't look a mess.

Look at the sky as I get out of the bath, the same shade of grey. Decide to write in LJ and decide to get £20 out of the bank to send to <b><a [lj2] href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/boingobaby/">Sel</a></b>, because I said I would a few days ago but have been a whiny unproductive git recently.

Watch the sky get darker before I leave. Decide to go into London instead, to be a bit different. At the same time I watch the Mega64 trailer and convert the theme to an mp3 for <b><a [lj2] href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/shortymst3k/">Neil</a></b>.

Watch the rain start to come down hard just before I leave. Shrug and take an umbrella.

In London, I buy Cliff a Terminator 3 DVD he's wanted for a while and buy the Blackadder DVD boxset for myself on a whim after seeing it for a "sale price".<sup>1</sup> I also get <b><a [lj2] href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/jessicapadkin/">Jess</a></b>' t-shirt changed around at last, because I said I would a few days ago but have been a whiny unproductive git recently.

Come back home, notice the rain starting to loom again. Decide to go to the cinema. Monster starts at 8:45. I fancy watching that. <b><a [lj2] href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/holly_ziviene/">Holly</a></b> offers me Shaun of the Dead posters. I take her up on this offer. I like the idea of having more posters in this room.

Hear the rain start to come down hard as I type this up. Shrug and grab the umbrella again, and a plastic bag to hold the umbrella in while the film will be watched.

I feel a bit better today. I forced myself to do something, and I'm enjoying the results.

<lj-cut text="Footnote:"><sup>1</sup>A "sale price" to me is effectively the price it'd cost for the item online, in a shop, so I can take the item home there and then.

    This came up while playing FIFA 12. A bit of NBA Elite-style Jesus-posin'! This is also me posting it into LJ to see if I can find a workaround to…
