I am a procrastinator. In fact, I've often described myself as the Evel Knievel of Procrastinators. The biggest challenge to a procrastinator is to find something to do with all the time you are wasting before completing the next item on your "to do" list. Of course, this is why the internet exists and You Tube is one of the greatest way to procrastinate. Here are some of the You Tube wormholes I have gone down while wasting time:
1. Old commercials: A random commercial from my childhood will pop into my mind and I will then spend vast amounts of time watching every version of it. Long live the Monchichi!
2. Classic country performances: I start thinking about my parents and then, next thing you know, I am watching old Tammy Wynette videos and Tammy Wynette is the gateway to Loretta Lynn (who really was the Queen of Country?) and then I'm watching George Jones videos and then Patsy Cline and then back to Tammy Wynette.
3. Iconic scenes from movies: Don't you sometimes just want to see the Brat Pack dance in The Breakfast Club? Maybe you need to see Patrick Swayze say "Nobody puts Baby in a corner." Maybe you want to see Hubbell break Katie's heart all over again at the end of The Way We Were. Okay...that last one is probably just my thing.
4. Today...I needed to see the scene from The Pirate Movie with Kristy McNichol and Christopher Atkins that my friends and I reenacted all the time in high school. And you know what? You Tube delivered.
Now you've had a peek inside my brain!
