Thursday Thirteen for November 15th, 2012

Thanks to the lovely and talented Paloma Beck, I have been turned on to the Thursday Thirteen meme. Here is my inaugural post.

13 Reasons I Should Not be Working Today

  1. I've already worked 2 days this week.
  2. My dogs want me to come back to bed.
  3. I need more time to spend on Twitter.
  4. The commute across the hall is too far.
  5. I am still freaked out about last night's episode of American Horror Story.
  6. I didn't drink enough wine last night to numb me for the job.
7. Why work when I know my novel will be turned into a multi-million dollar motion picture and/or I will win the Mega-Millions lottery? 
8. All my pajamas are dirty, so I have nothing to wear in my home office.
9. I don't have enough wine for tonight to numb me from the job. 
10. I'm still not using Pinterest; I need to get on that.
11. Why waste time working when the world is coming to an end in 5 weeks?
12. Isn't today Thanksgiving? 
And the #13 reason why I should not be working:  I should be WRITING!

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others’ comments. It’s easy, and fun! Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted! (Be sure to check out Paloma's Thursday 13.)

  1. LOL - I could have used some of these excuses today. Happy writing :)

  2. Work is its own reason not to, eh?

  3. Sounds like you have a home office. You might enjoy my TT.

    1. hi Norma, LOVED your TT, but when I tried to reply, I thought I kept failing the CAPTCHA, so I might have posted my comments 3 times - LOL!

  4. Ah, but writing is *work* too - just more fun! ;)

    Happy TT!

    1. True dat - and far more my vocation than testing software. Ick!

  5. #7 made me laugh. Isn't that the dream? To write the big ol' bestseller and sit back and enjoy? I hope you make it. I hope I do too!

    1. My best to you as well! Or that we both win the lottery!

  6. Holy cow- I'm feeling the same thing!

    Have a great Thursday!

  7. You should be writing because that is work too, (that you can do in your pf's) and hopefully that you love.
