laundry, and paying my outrageous gas bill.

Scheduling a dentist's appointment, and looking for a new apartment.

Andrew / February 24, 2004 4:13 PM

Various projects, and the inevitable bill-paying.

Kenan / February 24, 2004 4:16 PM

The inevitable.

Updating my friggin portfolio. And, subsequently, looking for a new job.

Organizing my closet.

I have to put away my non-prego clothes, hang up my prego clothes, and clear out a dresser for my son's things.
Sure it sounds like LOADS of fun, but believe you me....

Celebrating "Grey Tuesday".

laundry & apartment hunting

Brenda / February 24, 2004 5:16 PM

sending a return email to a friend-of-a-friend fixup guy. calling my mother. banishing the dustbunnies to another dimension, one that can't be seen by my catsitter while I'm gone.

miss ellen / February 24, 2004 5:27 PM

dropping off the 5 bags of clothes and shoes that are sitting in my trunk (ahem, and not to a green gaia box).

at least they're outta my closet, though! we like to move in steps ;)

Cinnamon / February 24, 2004 5:31 PM

Writing text for my webpage. But, I've been putting that off for a long time. Otherwise, laundry. Tonight I'll have to stop putting off cleaning the cat box, or there will be a fuzzy revolt in my home.

Cinnamon, I think the revolt will not be so much fuzzy, as poopy...

emily / February 25, 2004 11:18 AM

Working while I'm at work. Hemming a pair of pants. Studying for my first test since college.

shechemist / February 25, 2004 12:21 PM

writing a paper on the steps and agents in the healing of bone fractures.

oh and starting seeds.

Ian / February 25, 2004 12:40 PM

I'm putting off every bit of classwork including two papers, one reading assignment (required for one of the papers) and an as-of-yet unbegun final project.

Stephanie / February 25, 2004 12:53 PM

Everything, other than making my wife's birthday (today!) as special as she is.

ma / February 25, 2004 3:19 PM

Paying my cellphone bill, writing an important paper for my history class, shaving my legs.

tony / February 25, 2004 11:14 PM

Bills, bills, and more bills. Also, some documents I'm typing up for work.

Basically, anything depressing.
