One of the many virtues of the Midtown Scholar is that you never quite know what you’re going to stumble across.  How could anyone not pick this up?  It’s the history of a pop culture icon who we all loved as kids, even if the gum was made out of some kind of rock-like substance.  It’s even got some trading cards in the back!  Rock!

If this doesn’t scream “Impulse Buy” I don’t what does!

Today’s Daily Post wants to know what our favorite procrastination destination is.  I’ve got two.

First, I like putting things off by hanging out at the Midtown Scholar after work or on the weekends.  It’s a convenient two-and-a-half blocks from my house.  The coffee’s good, the baristas are friendly and interesting, and there’s always the hundreds of thousands of used and rare books that can be browsed should one feel the need to get up and take a walk.

My second form of procrastination is @Midnight‘s #hashtagwars.  It’s a glaring example of ‘sleep procrastination’ but it’s just so damned fun.  And besides, I need an outlet for my inner Smart-Ass lest it surface at work and get me into trouble.

I could go into greater detail about both, but, nah, I’ll get around to it later.  😉
