Wow!

That looks to be a very useful thing, and it's completed, and you've delivered it just in time to be of use to us all...

Oh.....

         Get out.

The door's over there... Although,  of course, don't rush towards it in an unseemly manner, we will need a bit of time to tear up your membership card first... well, once we get around to making membership cards, I suppose....

Oh, I haven't actually joined, not officially. I did pick up an application form last year though. I'll make my way out immediately. Oh, there is a bar over there? I might have time for a swift half before I fetch my coat...

Is this necessary? He's leaving when we just about to start the New Year's party!

Ah great! Well, I'll stick around for the party - I've just noticed a copy of War and Peace on the bar, and started leafing through it though. Perhaps I'll have time to finish it before the party starts?
We are proud to present the Surrey Steampunk Convivial, for your pleasure:

Well, okay, you can leave after the party... now, we'll need to start organising this shindig. First off, we'll need to organise a Committee. Any volunteers..?

Oh yes! I forgot to mention, ladies and gentlemen...  I have received an aethergram from Mr. Dream Hazard!  He expressed his intention to join the club! Surely he'll make an appearance soon (as I received that aethergram months ago).

Steady on now; don't get carried away, you have done a third of it after all.
You have to tread a fine line between avant-garde surrealism and getting yourself sectioned...

Am I late? I only saw this post recently and kept meaning to pop in but was distracted by other such things like the state of my knitting, and whether one needed another cup of tea. How are we all coming along?
I did mean to bring my membership form and all, but I think I used it for knitting calculations and re-writes, and then to mop up the spilled tea. You know how it goes.

Mmm, the bar serves a decently kept pint of ale - the kind of ale that makes you want to get up and - oh...there's that book I was going to read.

What was that you said back then?

It is by no means an irrational fancy that, in a future existence, we shall look upon what we think our present existence, as a dream.

Here is an application form.  Do have it.  No, hang on, that is not the correct form.  Oh, I am sure I had one just five minutes ago.  Where did it go ....

Has anybody seen my manuscripts I was supposed to be reviewing? I swear I had them in my bag when I entered. I have my pen here, but not the papers. My focus must have gone off duty when I was considering the contents of my satchel. Ah well, another cup of tea anybody? I found a brand new packet of plain biscuits on my bag, so the day is not entirely written off I suppose.

Opens the packet of biscuits and sits them in front of herself on the low table, inviting people to partake of the tea and biscuits on the table.

CUBINOID'S RANDOM STEAMPUNK EXCUSE GENERATOR.




I really ought to make a copy of this.

... and a piece of paper.  I'll need to find that too ...

Has anybody seen my pen?

You are after volunteers for the committee? I'd be happy to help out if I'm free.

I'm not generally free, though. But if nothing else comes up, I could spare an hour or so every...uh...every other week, or so. If there's nothing better on. I might actually not be able to make every meeting. And I might be a bit late. Sometimes I am late. Late for things. Especially meetings. And if there's anything to be written down, or organised, I'm not so good at that. Well, I am, actually - but it does take me a while to get around to it.

I just wanted to remind my fellow Procrastinator Club members that today is No Rush Day, 2015.

Oh. It's 2016.... Well, no matter!

Perhaps we should introduce International Procrastinator's Day!

Anyway, as I was saying ..... oh, I wasn't, was I? or had I already started?  Oh dang me, It was so long ago that I now cannot remember where I was.  I had better shut up then, hadn't I.

This seems like a perfect fit for me. I'll leave myself a message later to remember to ask if I can join.
Find out what you cannot do, and then, go out and do it.

HAPPY EASTER!! Well enjoy as much as you can, this is the coldest Spring I remember, and it seems to be getting colder!  What? It's December already? Hmm. I guess I didn't notice. I was distracted. But no matter. It's still 2016  ;D
