Procrastina-shun and a little health care rant

I am such a freaking procrastinator. Ok, not really. It's more like things take way longer than I ever intend them to and my day just slips a way.

Does that I ever happen to you? Your best intentions of having a full and productive day are totally thrown off track by people, places, things (yes, nouns) that are out of your control and all of a sudden you think CRAPPERS!

As a totally unrelated tangent, I am still not sold on this health care thing. Because seriously, figuring out a way to get everyone insurance coverage, be it private or public or a combination therof of options, does not tackle the other issue whatsoever - health care costs have risen astronomically since the 90's. As a matter of fact, had health care costs ticked along at a respectable 5-7% increase year over year, the average American worker would have been able to recoup $XXX (insert crazy increased amount) in their salary instead of their employer paying their healthcare premiums. You will have to check here to find exact numbers -

Chew on that for a second. Instead of the Taco Bell on your lap which will send you to the doctor eventually.
