A motto for perfectionist procrastinators

If a thing is worth doing,
it's worth doing badly.

I have been following this and catching up on a heap of small things at work that I haven't been doing because I wanted to do them properly but badly is better than not at all. In fact a perfectionist's badly is sometimes better than other people's properly.

In other news I have been watching lots of Heroes. As one of the people that recommended Heroes to me said "The premise is that people all over the world are developing superpowers, from California to New York" and before you say "What about the Japanese Guy?" I'd like to point out the first thing he does with his superpowers is go to America. Despite this and its complete disregard for science as we know it, I recommend it.

Being productive at work and watching Heroes in the evenings has led to the sad neglect of this blog for the last few days.

Oh, and D is away again. Bother that man.

Note: For increased appreciation of that last statement you need to be familiar with a later edition of Mog the Forgetful Cat. For those of you familiar with an earlier edition - Drat that man.

Isn't it strange how work can easily take a back seat to everything else. I have a ton of things I can be doing, but what am I doing right now??
