Quotes of the Day for 5 September 2001 – Procrastination

Today is "Be Late For Something Day" - an annual holiday sponsored by the Procrastinator's Club of America. I can relate, being such a talented procrastinator myself that I haven't yet sent in my 1976 dues payment. Of course, they never actually got around to billing me because I still haven't sent in my membership application. With that demonstration of deferral prowess they're likely to elect me president, if they ever get around to holding the election.

Procrastination is my sin.
It brings me naught but sorrow.
I know that I should stop it.
In fact, I will - tomorrow!
