Quotes of the Day for 5 September 2004 – Procrastination
Today is "Be Late For Something Day" - an annual holiday sponsored by the Procrastinator's Club of America.

Of course, they never actually got around to billing me because I still haven't sent in my membership application. (It's around here somewhere, with an eight-cent stamp on it.) With my awe-inspiring deferral prowess they're likely to elect me president, if they ever get around to holding the election.
