...and a step back....

as usual, i have stuff to do.......and i'm having a hard time making myself focus long enough to do it.

.......which reminds me- there's a great line in my favorite movie.

well, actually, there are a lot of great lines in the movie, like:

"i was thinking of the immortal words of socrates, when he said, "i drank what?" "

mitch taylor: something strange happened to me this morning.
chris knight: was it a dream where you see yourself standing in sort of sun-god robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?
mitch taylor: no.
chris knight: why am i the only person that has that dream?

"if there's ever anything i can do for you...or more to the point, to you, you let me know, okay?"

however, none of those really apply to my current situation.

i've written before about my procrastination issues- and probably multiple times because, well, i procrastinate often. tonight, obviously, is no exception. i have been putting off this pile of avon stuff for a week, because i was getting to the point of burnout, and i chose to follow some of val kilmer/chris knight's advice.

in the movie, there's a scene where mitch (chris knight's protege, i suppose) is getting frustrated with the big project he's working on, and chris knight walks in and gives him quite possibly the most useful advice i've ever heard:

"let's just take a step back. no, i was wrong. i'm sorry. take a step forward. now take a step back . . . and then a step forward . . . and then a step back . . . and then we're cha-chaing."

i took the step back last week, and unfortunately i can't seem to stop cha-chaing long enough to put together this damned order.
