6 ways to distract yourself from getting any work done

face scan
Scan your head...
Cat Scan
or your cat instead of scanning paperwork,

Rock out with your broom instead of cleaning with it,

Do silly poses in the photo booth that you're supposed to be running,
Desktop icons
Change all your desktop icons,

Join in a game of strip poker in an art gallery instead of just photographing it,
Ahhh!
And explore your new computer box instead of learning how to use your new computer.

haha...I love the 'cat scans.'
And the face scan was pretty cool. Thanks for providing me with a great distraction from work. :)

Zoё said...

Those are such awesome desk icons! Wish I knew how to do that.
Great post, currently trying to get some work done myself.

Frk. Smed said...

Maybe I should try this instead of cleaning when I should be making my home work. This look much more fun!

Kate said...

These are brilliant! I'm very tempted to scan my head right now!

#7: Check our colormekatie when you should be finishing a research form tonight for tomorrow's test ;)
Somehow there are always more fun things to do when you need to get work done.. Like doodling on bananas or learning to play the ukulele..

LOL you're the best!!!

Stephanie said...

I have been saving colored paper from work that would normally get thrown away. You've rekindled my creativity through your blog. I move at the end of the month and am looking forward to decorating my new home a la Katie!

Shroom said...

Hahawww Katie, you are so inspiring! I'm coming to New York in a week and I secretly hope that if I keep my eyes open, I'll spot some of your art on a street sign, on a lamp post, or on a dull gray wall somewhere in the city! :) FINGERS CROSSED!

nene said...

What a wonderful freshness. I bet if I lQQked up 'cute, refreshing, sparkling and magical in some reference manual it would identify 'Katie'.

Thank you for a breath of fresh air in this atmospheric mix of world and political depressive goulash.

Great ideas! I love the easy transition from strip poker (which you clearly lost!!.. or won?) to naked in a box. I have a busy day of artful procrastinating, so smooth transitions save me time! Thanks! :)

Seriously though, your desktop icons are perfection.

I love~ how the face scan looks like one of those fancy shampoo advertisements on magazine pages where the model hair is thrown in the air or spins her head so the hair fans out~ you know, without the whole cheek mushed/squished thing~ C:
