Stuff I Need to Get Done ASAP: Daily Post

What’s your next, most pressing deadline? Are you excited, stressed, or ambivalent about it? What’s the first thing you’d like to do once you’re done with it?

Let’s see. Where should I start with my Deadline List?

I have two interviews that I need to transcribe. One is about half finished and the other one hasn’t been started. I would like to blame “The White Queen.” However, I will save “The White Queen” discussion for another time.

I told Little Sister #1 that I would get her teacher something for Christmas. I have until tomorrow. I’m pretty sure I’m not going to make this particular deadline. Is it okay if I give the teacher a gift after the new year? Is it horribly offensive? What if the gift is homemade and also awesome? Does that make it less offensive to be late?

Can I blame “The White Queen” again? Yes, let’s do that. It’s all her fault. Can I blame Phillipa Gregory too? Apparently, I can’t get anything done when her books are turned into movies.

So I have some Christmas gifts to make. Interviews to transcribe. After all of that is over, I would like to have a drink and discuss “The White Queen” with whoever will listen.



  1. The White Queen was very easy to use as an excuse for not meeting deadlines. In my case, I would probably also add having to read the other books in the set as once started, they are pretty hard to out down. Wolf Hall was another, but I still have the book to read on that one. Maybe I will conveniently start reading it round about the time I need to start thinking about Christmas this year!
    Hope you got your gifts sorted!
