The Guild of Procrastinators
« on: December 27, 2014, 11:13:07 pm »
A room (still under construction, but there's no work crew in sight) for those of us who ought to be doing something but just can't be bothered.

Membership forms are in the corner there, and guild fees are due on the 15th of every third month.

<Better intro post coming soon>

I'll procrastinate later.

My membership form fell from my listless hand and drifted under my velvet Recamier couch in the Dragon Tamers' when I had finished my scone and was overcome with drowsiness. . . the warmth of the fire and the sound of the cat purring, it can wait 'til I've had a nap . . .

Brian:'Oh yes, I forgot. It's fairly easy, old boy.
Elle a des idees au-dessus de sa gare.'
Kenneth: 'Idiot.  It's not that kind of station.'

I was going to attach the Protocol for new members, made a start on it:

1.

That's not bad, eh? I'll plan to work on the rest right after lunch tomorrow. I did realise that I am not actually a member yet because I didn't fill in the form - well, I was going to, but I lost the first one. Think it went down the back of the sofa or got 'filed' underneath the pile of letters that I have yet to open.

Anyway, if anyone has any other ideas for how I could follow up or improve upon the guild protocol, please jot it down and send it to this address:

Hang on, there's someone at the door. Be right back.

Sounds interesting.  I may apply for membership in a month or two.

Knowing my proclivities, my servants filled out the form for me.

Will the guild be providing round tuits as part of the signing up process? I can send my application when I get a round tuit...

Not before the tuit is properly rounded

We will be providing complimentary round tuits, as soon as I can get this order form filled out. Any extra rounding will have to be done by the members themselves.

I think I would insist on only professional crastinators here. Can't be having damned amateurs mucking up the works and actually doing something. Wouldn't be proper.

Amateur crastinators will be allowed as apprentices. When the find the time they must follow in the as-yet-untrod footsteps of their teachers, and study our library section on history's great procras-

*Looks to the library corner, where several IKEA bookshelves have been abandoned, one half assembled and the rest still boxed.*

When we get a library, that is. I'm sure It'll get done eventually.

Anticrastinators are a somewhat trickier matter... I'll have to give it some thought later.
