Does anyone remember that incredibly shitty Paula Abdul video with "Scat Cat" or was it MC Scat Cat. Who knows. To be honest it really doesn't matter it's just that when I say or hear "opposites attract" I think of Paula Abdul dancing on a roof with a horribly animated cat tap dancing. An animated cat tap dancing, what the fuck is that, that's like getting close to Xanadu fucked up. It was the eighties, and well there was blow, much blow and probably hookers.
SG is one of these chronic procrastinators. She is so much of one I bought her as a joke this T-shirt from Threadless that was yellow with this phrase printed on it that said "Procrastinators the leaders of tomorrow". To be honest I'm kind of slow and I was drawn to the fact that it said "procrastinators" everything after that was inconsequential. I'm that stupid blond (sorry blond people but me, I'm sort of dense) that hears a joke and only realizes it's funny after everyone else has laughed. Something kind of amusing a I pulled on her was that one day her library had a water main burst. She called me up before I had left for work asking me to bring clothing. It was something like bring a t-shirt and some pants that I wont' care about getting too dirty in. The t-shirt I brought.... "Procrastinators, the leaders of tomorrow."
Why I bring up all this procrastination talk is that we (SG and I) have started brewing beer finally. I have this problem where I have a really hard time switching gears and starting something I've never done. Show me how to do it and I will fucking go to town and run you into the ground to the point where you wish you could flash me with one of those memory erasing gizmo's from "Men and Black". The problem with procrastination is apparently for SG she hit this artificial brewing deadline. It was either a deadline or I actually was able to out wait her. About a week ago we started our cooking and primary fermentation of our Scottish Ale. The problem was that we started it when we had to go somewhere and brewing beer is apparently not one of those things you just do in between commercials. It's this lengthy process boiling followed by cooling to 70 degrees so that you can take an accurate hydrometer reading followed by transferring into a plastic bucket (aka: primary fermentation thing). It only becomes a problem when you start it at 2pm and you have to be somewhere at 6pm which was the case last Sunday. I'm not sure if I thought this was a fluke or something but tonight SG got this idea that we HAD to transfer our beer into giant glass bottle (aka: carboy, aka: giant fucking glass thing). Again we had somewhere to be and we only had about 30 minutes to sanitize all parts that were to come in contact with the beer and syphon the beer to the glass carboy. It got done but there was much cursing and stress of which I don't really like to work under. Again opposites I would have loved to just wait till tomorrow but it needed to be done tonight and well I guess it kind of did but somehow a procrastinator with an artificial deadline forced me to procrastinate from doing it.
There are other opposites attract and to be honest I'm not sure that has anything to do with it. SG and I are by and large very compatible except for procrastination which seems to come into play more than you think it would in a post academic life.
One other opposites which is bad, arguments. She wants to go away and calm down, I want to talk it out. You have no idea how many times that has gotten me into trouble.
Enough of all this jibber jabber I have some video games to achieve and they aren't going to achieve for themselves. I also have a pair of headphones hooked up to my retro stereo receiver here listening to CD101 and for a change they are playing continuously pleasing music without many commercials. Would I rather listen to Woxy.com? Yes but retro receiver knows nothing of these innertubes.
