Avoidance Issues

As a Slacker Extraordinaire, there are certain things that must be avoided at all costs. The following is a list, in no particular order, of items that fall under this Laissez-faire policy. Feel free to make your own additions.

  • The Fly Lady Oof! My head gets woozy just looking at the home page. Carrying a kitchen timer attached to my person is just so wrong. I don't even set a timer when I bake cookies.
  • Uber nutritionist Gillian McKeith, I shudder to think of this woman shuddering in my kitchen.
  • Stephen R. Covey, Franklin Covey, and anything else related to being Highly Effective. I find it rather suspect that they never say effective at What.
  • Motivators--the name says it all. I personally prefer Despair, Inc. I can waste an entire afternoon laughing at their website alone.
  • Side-Tracked Home Executives- There is a good reason why I'm sidetracked. Side tracks are infinately more interesting than the beaten trail. Robert Frost thought so too.

Well, that's a start at least. I'm sure I should probably add Martha Stewart to my list too. She is definately not slacker material (well, except for that whole slacking on the taxes bit), but I can't quite bring myself to find her website. The sight of all of those triple folded towels and milk glass compotes would probably be too much for me.


  1. A woman after my own heart!

    I tried to do that Fly Lady-Sidetracked Home Executives thing many years ago, and simply could not even begin to get with the program. My mind just doesn't work that way. My kids must be used to the chaos by now ;)

    (dbltall of Team Garlic, whose towels are in a heap on the bathroom floor instead of tied up in rolls with ribbon and lavendar)

  2. It's a good thing you don't live near me! Even the rare days when I do get my act together would probably not happen!! I always choose to get sidetracked! In fact, I think I'd better go do what I was supposed to be doing now. Thanks for pleasantly diverting me with your blog once again: )
