Priorities in check- movies and icecream

I sometimes wonder if I'm too ADD to be a writer. Today I have successfully dodged all productivity and instead have watched two Paul Walker movies, apparently someone over there at USA has a massive Paul Walker crush and decided to make Sunday "Paul Walker Marathon Day", cause poor thing can't act worth a lick, speaking of which I would LOVE to lick him. So, congrats on a successful career Paul for being so incredibly lick worthy.

I have Googled Ben and Jerry's and all of their new flavors (Stephen Colbert's Americone Dream and Raspberry Chocolate Chunk in the "light" version), and have had enough restraint to not run down the stairs and go sample each of them, simply because then I'd have to run SIX FLIGHTS back upstairs to enjoy it, and exercising is not in my "do nothing at all" plan.

I have had a Leona Lewis, Bleeding Love "dance break." That's right, you've all seen them...the "dance break" is commonly used in romantic comedy's, I'm pretty sure Cameron Diaz popularized the "dance break" however, I was wearing pants. Since, my dance break wasn't going to be seen by millions I didn't need to get in my skivvies to rake in the numbers, I just needed to shake it off. I also like to do-a-lil-jig anytime I start to zone out listening to depressing Alanis Morisette songs (shut up, she's still cool) and watching the History Channel.

Instead of being productive I have read from cover to cover every. single. magazine. in my apartment, which is a SHITLOAD of magazines since both of my roommates work in fashion, and I write, while aspiring to look "fashionable."

Part of the reason I've wanted to be a complete black hole of procrastination is due to the fact that my brain has been functioning on high-speed in the Red Zone for a solid week. I haven't slept and haven't plucked my eyebrows, or taken care of "my needs" and apparently while meeting people, exchanging business cards, emailing and attempting looking as if I am "on it" the thought of Ben and Jerry's and "movie day" has etched it's way into my subconscious. So while I prepare to work on a Sunday, which I did on Friday and Saturday night, my body has said "Eff you, work. Take a backseat. See you Monday, bitch."

And with that, I bring you a slideshow....

Instead of doing my errands I NEED to do fro my upcoming trip, I procrastinate by reading blogs and dicking around on the internet.

And it is a nice day to boot!

"Instead of "studying" for work and doing house labor (I view it more as labor than chores) I procrastinate by reading blogs, twittering and watching random episodes of Passport to Europe on dvd"

Instead of working or cleaning the house I procrastinate by being on the internet and watching television.

This post makes me very, very happy to work in a school and not have to take any work home, and also to be on break this week.

I do hope you enjoyed your movie and magazine day!

nat said...

Instead of doing the things that I know will make me happy I procrastinate by doing the things that make everyone else around me happy.

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

Ooo Nat, you need a "Fill- the well" day...

Those pics are way cool. :)

Instead of working, doing laundry, washing the dishes, making dinner or anything of real substance, I procrastinate by either a) watching TV, b) surfing the internet, c) reading, or d) none of the above, just nap.

hookerbaby said...

Design Addict said...

Instead of doing work on my 10 page paper, I am reading your blog whilst bitching about dating on my blog. Fun!

Instead of getting through my email inbox, I procrastinate by cleaning the house.

At least it's productive procrastination, right???

jesslovesnyc said...

Instead of doing work at work, I catch up on my Google Reader, comment on blogs, and occasionally just...blog. Not to mention planning the life I'll lead when I move in September (googling art, photography, writing and dance classes, for example).

Cute slideshow!! :)

sequined said...

I made one of these slide shows a while ago (which I, um, posted on my MySpace, haha) and it was so much fun! I forced my friends to watch it over and over and over.

bubblygirl said...

instead of doing homework I am choosing to spend my time wandering around your blog, reading all your old posts! You are an amazing writer!
BTW, best photo slide show EVER. Most people's are completely boring and self- adoring, but yours is totally sweet. And i want your hair!

Instead of cleaning, I procrastinate by moving one pile of shit onto another pile of shit.

I have a dream to make it through every flavor of Ben & Jerry's. Just when I think I'm there, they release another one. Love it!

ex-tex said...

instead of writing lesson plans, i procrastinate by watching seinfeld and sex in the city.

thanks for your comment - it makes me feel better knowing that someone else has been there. :)

Lauren said...

I love dance breaks. Love them. Actually, I love them ALMOST as much as I love that a Ben and Jerry's is across the street from me. Within walking distance. So unhealthy, yet so delicious.

As for your question

Instead of doing my laundry last night, I watched tv with my roommates. Hanging out trumped clean clothes.

PrincessB said...

Dance breaks are a necessary part of life.

Instead of planning for my move to Maine I am reading blogs and watching movies

Surfergrrl said...

"Instead of getting in on Monday morning and getting to work, I procrastinate by reading blogs" (but very good blogs!)

Pretty Lush said...

I think the dance breaks are the only reason I love Diaz so. She cemented the deal with The Sweetest Thing.

Instead of working like I should be I am BLOGGING! Yikes!

Who isn't a procrastinator?

Wendy Tatum said...

Just clicked off an ad I was writing to search blogs. Sigh. Slave to ADD. Keeps things fresh though!

a little bird said...

PGA said...

Instead of doing the analysis for my thesis project I procrastinate by playing tetris, reading blogs and watching Anime…


P.S. I love your playlist!

Michelle & the City said...

instead of cleaning my condo, i watch previously DVR'd shows and eat ben and jerry's ice cream ;)

ChasingParadise said...

This is going to be totally obvious but, instead of doing REAL WORK, I procrastinate by READING MY BLOGROLL. hahahaa.

P.S. I really enjoyed the candid slideshow. It's nice to see you in your natural environment.

Mike said...

Instead of writing the things that might make me money, I write a blog entry.

I then continue to teach my dog how to properly and efficiently castrate would be robbers, and actual robbers like politicians.

I plan to release her into congress just before next election with a basket tied around her neck to see how many gonads she can bring back.

Many people say that countries would be better run by women; lets see how well it does with eunuchs.

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

a little bird- creme brulee?!?!?! whaaaatttttttttt

Mel Heth said...

Instead of replying to emails from good friends, I reply to blog posts from total strangers.

Alexis said...

Instead of doing laundry, I procrastinate by getting out of my house to go play with G.

Vanessa said...

Instead of doing my errands on my day off I read blogs, write posts to publish later when I am too tired to write something that day blah blah blah.

Sidenote, there is someone I think you should meet. Her name is Taylor Giacoma and she is a singer songwriter there in NYC. She is an absolute doll and has an upcoming show at Tuesday April 29 at 9pm at Sidewalk Cafe. You can check her out at www.taylorgiacoma.com She is totally awesome and I get this vibe that you would like her music. She will also be on WCNI 90.9 this coming Thursday morning between 6 and 9am. (yes, I realize how early this is!) Let me know what you think of her!

Vanessa said...

I forgot... I LOVED your slideshow! Gorgeous you are!

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

Aw youre sweet!! Thanks Vanessa!!! I'll absolutely check her out, I love finding new artists, fun times!!!

boXer girl said...

Instead of doing it right the first time, I procrastinate by doing it wrong. And that's the way I rollllllll.....

Exposed said...

Instead of following my own dreams, I try to help other people achieve theirs. It's a perpetual cycle of good intentions, unfulfilment, and reevaluation.

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

exposed- Ahhh.....this is a very interesting one.....

mn said...

i read blogs. and re-read emails when there is nothing new in my inbox. i'm sad.
you're a pretty gal. i enjoyed the slide show. how do you get your cheeks to highlight that shine? what do you put on? inquiring minds want to know.

Katie said...

Instead of cleaning and getting organized, I procrastinate by reading blogs and playing Mob Wars on Facebook.
