If you are not really sure take the test immediately. Please do not delay.

I have a slight tendency to procrastinate. Just slight. Actually, I thought I was a lot worse.

I was editing my post and deleted it. Actually, to me it sounds dangerous, something like terminator.

You scored 23? I am twice as procrastinational as you... I feared I would have 75 or so. Apparently, I am fairly normal. (That is my conclusion).

I scored 48 (these quizzes remind me of the time I once did a sex quiz in, I think, Cosmopolitan magazine, forgot about it - my mother borrowed it to read on the bus)

I think it is normal to delay stuff you are not too keen on, such as paying fines or cleaning. Do not worry I finished all my cleaning chores this weekend.
I never delay chocolate. What would be the opposite of procrastinate. Is there a dangerous word for it?

Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout
Would not take the garbage out!
She'd scour the pots and scrape the pans,
Candy the yams and spice the hams,
And though her daddy would scream and shout,
She simply would not take the garbage out.
And so it piled up to the ceilings:
Coffee grounds, potato peelings,
Brown bananas, rotten peas,
Chunks of sour cottage cheese.
It filled the can, it covered the floor,
It cracked the window and blocked the door
With bacon rinds and chicken bones,
Drippy ends of ice cream cones,
Prune pits, peach pits, orange peel,
Gloppy glumps of cold oatmeal,
Pizza crusts and withered greens,
Soggy beans and tangerines,
Crusts of black burned buttered toast,
Gristly bits of beefy roasts. . .
The garbage rolled on down the hall,
It raised the roof, it broke the wall. . .
Greasy napkins, cookie crumbs,
Globs of gooey bubble gum,
Cellophane from green baloney,
Rubbery blubbery macaroni,
Peanut butter, caked and dry,
Curdled milk and crusts of pie,
Moldy melons, dried-up mustard,
Eggshells mixed with lemon custard,
Cold french fried and rancid meat,
Yellow lumps of Cream of Wheat.
At last the garbage reached so high
That it finally touched the sky.
And all the neighbors moved away,
And none of her friends would come to play.
And finally Sarah Cynthia Stout said,
"OK, I'll take the garbage out!"
But then, of course, it was too late. . .
The garbage reached across the state,
From New York to the Golden Gate.
And there, in the garbage she did hate,
Poor Sarah met an awful fate,
That I cannot now relate
Because the hour is much too late.
But children, remember Sarah Stout
And always take the garbage out!

Shel Silverstein, 1974

Well, before it is too late: I scored 55.

That was a great song/poem, CR! Taking garbage out happens to be something I like doing occasionally.

Congratulations, Kasey. You beat us all.

You guys have not met my mother yet!

She started The Big Spring Clean (is that what you call it?) on Christmas day and is doing ordinary cleaning jobs one week in advance.
She takes away food from under people's noses before they can even taste it: "Have you finished your meal?"

To her procrastinating is sacrilegious (what a word... ). 

Her offspring is somewhat different!

Kasey
Ohhh gawd Martine, your mum sound a widdy bit like me .... i dont do it with meals though, but im terrible for taking out cups of tea and coffee to be washed before someone has finished them

And yes, we call it spring cleaning, its supposed to start around March/April time

that's a good pic of you, Martine. You still have a bit of a pink colored nose, I see. Pink is a pretty color, nothing wrong with a rosey honker, gal

The goddamn mayor of my town has taken some decisions.
As a result, the town's bulky waste collection service no longer exists. It was free of charge, and we could order it online. Yesterday, it was there. Today, it has gone.
And where do I fit in? Well, I procrastinate. Instead of getting rid of my old furniture free of charge, I will have to pay a professional company to get rid of it. Some of it has been removed recently, but the remainder is still there. I am so angry with myself now and I could kill the mayor. What kind of individual decides stuff like that? I called the town hall, and they said the measure starts in 2020, but they are fully booked in December. That is crap. They simply stopped doing it. Just like that.

Do you think you have matured, Nicky? I am just getting worse.
If I would put my furniture on the pavement, it would disappear too. But.... I live alongside a very busy road with many (police) cars passing by. Putting stuff outside like that is forbidden.
Anyhow, the old stuff has left my life. I had to help loading it onto the truck. There was just a truck and a driver you see. I had asked for two men. It was hard for him to do it alone, and I did not want to waste much time...
When I thought that I could finally forget about it all, the door bell rang. I had to pay cash. Of course, I did not have any cash in the house. So I hopped on the truck and the driver took me to a cash machine. When I handed him the amount due, he did not have any change. So I had to go ask for it in a nearby pharmacy. I asked him for a receipt, because it was the first time that I had to pay that company cash, and there was not a single decent piece of paper to be found in that vehicle. He scribbled my receipt on the back of a filthy note, and I took off on foot. And that was that.
