Autological Procrastination

#ifdef BORING_SELF_DEPRECATION

So obviously this isn’t a good parody and the song is ancient (under some “pop” definition, which is probably not a very discriminative label), at over four years. Just randomness that finds its way onto my iPod. And the words are not very creative, and there are even two lines that survive unscathed because they fit reasonably and I can’t think of anything better (and I don’t even know if this is supposed to be bad, I just want to ensure nobody expects otherwise).

#endif

Whatever, this has been sitting in my draft box for at least one month.

Oh, and my idea of what constitutes a normal time to finish schoolwork is probably extraordinarily atypical. Luckily “twelve”, “one”, “two”, etc. can be swapped for “ten” without breaking anything. “Nine” has to sort-of rhyme, though. Sorry.

… I should really be studying for finals, shouldn’t I?

“Parody”: How Far We’ve Come – Matchbox 20

I’m waking up at the start of a brand new day
But every second that I’ve got is only wasting away
Now I wonder how to use this time to make something change

A meager wiki-walk devours all the hours and I
Never panic till the clock is showing half past nine
Can you tell me how I ever used to manage to reach the finish line

But I just think this work is really hard to do
Oh well I guess I’ll get to it soon
Time to procrastinate (oh yeah)
Time to procrastinate

And I just think this work is really hard to start
Oh well I’ll wait till I have the heart
Time to procrastinate (oh yeah)
Time to procrastina-a-ate

I think it’s past ten o’clock but there’s no time to check
The things I’ve got to do are making me a nervous wreck
I started crying and I couldn’t stop myself
I started running but there’s nowhere to run to

I sit down at my desk with a blank sheet in hand
Said, “Why you stalling man, your time is up, don’t you understand?”
Don’t waste your life while you’ve got something else to look forward to

I just think this work is really hard to do
Oh well I guess I’ll get to it soon
Time to procrastinate (oh yeah)
Time to procrastinate

And I just think this work is really hard to start
Oh well I’ll wait till I have the heart
Time to procrastinate (oh yeah)
Time to procrastina-a-ate

It’s gone, gone, baby it’s all gone
Your time slipped out the window with your pitiful fun
It’s cruel, cruel, it is just so cruel
It will never come back, that is time’s only rule
Yes it’s gone, gone, baby it’s all gone
Your time slipped out the window with your pitiful fun
It’s cruel, cruel, it is just so cruel
It will never come back, that is time’s only rule

I just think this work is really hard to do
Oh well I guess I’ll get to it soon
Time to procrastinate (oh yeah)
Time to procrastinate

And I just think this work is really hard to start
Oh well I’ll wait till I have the heart
Time to procrastinate (oh yeah)
Time to procrastinate (repeat 7 additonal times, for some reason)
