A list of things people do very efficiently, which don’t need to be done at all…

  • Reading through the first five directions on mapquest when you’re leaving from your home address.
  • Listening to the worst pickup line ever, “Get in the van.”
  • Learning cursive
  • Making bad decisions
  • Staring
  • Looking for ‘wasting time’ ideas….

Okay – maybe not the best topic for today’s Blog. What do you expect from a girl hanging out at the library on a Friday night. A novel idea?

People tend to agree on all of the websites that I went to for this topic – wasting time is spending too much time doing something that takes away from reaching your goal. My argument tonight is that if I want to lounge around on the sofa eating ice cream and watching stupid flicks all of the time – is it wasting my time? If I set the bar I never really waste time, do I? Hold on….okay, here’s a good bar joke:

Charles Dickens walks into a bar – the bartender says, Olive or Twist?


So-so. How about this one?

Two men walk into a bar. The third man ducks.


Hmmmm. And, this one.

A neutron walks into a bar. “I’d like a beer,” he says. The bartender promptly serves up a beer.

“How much will that be?” asks the neutron.

“For you?” replies the bartender, “no charge.”


I believe I’ve accomplished this goal, writing a Blog. If you don’t want to waste ANY time I suggest reading at a bar with a duck that has no charge cards. It’s simple when you visit: http://www.10daybookclub.com/
