Procrastifacing

August 29, 2009

I’m a fan of new words…whether they’re new to me or newly made.  They give me a cause to celebrate…or procrastinate as the case may be.

Case in point: procrastifacing.

Procrastifacing occurs when you should be working on something more productive yet have somehow managed to refresh your news feed 5 times in 1 minute. Or updated your status. Or searched for a group that you wouldn’t join “live” if it started up a stone’s throw from where you live. Or searched for your ex’s ex “ex” before you. Or the teacher from 5th grade that said she knew you’d go far. Or the teacher you lusted after who knew you wouldn’t amount to much. Or Teach For America. Or American Idol results. Or results from the last thing posted in your news feed. It’s the circle of life – it stalls us all.

Please note that procrastifacing is not to be confused with procrasturbation….last year’s term for the MySpace set.

Next month, the term will just be “proc.” You’ll need the remaining 136 characters 4 ur other tweet brevs.

    What is the word for linking from Facebook to post comments on blog posts about procrastifacing?

    That would be “slinking.”
