I am a procrastinator.

Plain and simple, that’s me.

For years, I have tried to convince myself otherwise, but I just keep proving myself wrong.  Of course on the plus side, that means that a part of me was also always right.  If I didn’t already know that I procrastinated, I wouldn’t be trying to convince myself wrong, so obviously I always knew, which means I was right all along, and who doesn’t like being right, right?  (If you understood any of that, please award yourself 10 bonus points.)

I love movies, which is interesting, since I never really considered what type of movie my life would be.  Well, I probably did for assignments or surveys or something, but really, I have never given it much thought.

But today I think I know.

                        THE PROCRASTINATOR
                                Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger
                                   Catch Phrase: “I’ll be back”
                      No, scratch that.  How about...“I do it later”

Yeah, I think that might do.  (Fallback dialogue could be "I get to it"?)

It’s not that I even like leaving things to the last minute.  Well, OK, maybe I kind of do—I love the rush of adrenaline you get when time is running out.  That’s when some of my best ideas come: under pressure.  (Cue Freddy Mercury and David Bowie, “Under Pressure!” Gah!  Love that song! (if you know what I’m talking about, give yourself 2 stars).)  It’s exhilarating.  Like a bomb ticking down.  All this creativity is on its way out, and it’s my job to get it out before the bomb goes off.  Call me MacGyver if you wish.  Well, not really.  He’s cool and all (there will never be another MacGyver), but still—dude you need a haircut! (Fortunately there are better stylists on Stargate than there were in the 80s.)

So maybe that’s what my movie would consist of?  A terminator/procrastinator who gets things done in the nick of time with only a matchstick, a nickel, a stick of gum, and an old parking ticket? 

Oh yeah
, I could totally handle that...
