How well did I do with my Thirteen Things I was going to try and do with the time off work I had from work

  1. Finish short story for ASTONISHING ADVENTURES MAGAZINE – Success
  2. Work on my novel – Failed misserably
  3. Tidy my flat: Mostly except one room which is a tip
  4. Reading – lots of it: Not quite lots but some
  5. Catching up on some DVD watching: Caught up
  6. Go to the cinema – Saw “Run Fat Boy Run”
  7. Work on my impworks web site: Failed but did some last night
  8. Finish writing my first facebook application – Failed Misserably to touch this
  9. Make some pictures with Vue: Success
  10. Taking some photographs for Wordless Wednesday: Took four pictures and I used the only one already
  11. Write at least one new python script for Vue: Failed
  12. Go to the Liverpool 800 exhibition: Failed
  13. Fail to do 50% of the above because of either sleeping in, getting a cold or bad weather: I’m blaming a cold that took out 8 days of my break

I haven't touched my novel in weeks, so, y'know, don't feel too bad.

Mitchypoo Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Blame the sickness but also, celebrate the successes. Happy TT!

Samantha_K Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Well, at least you gave it a good shot! Sorry about the weather and the cold...
Better luck next time you have days off, ok?
Happy TT!

katherine. Thursday, October 11th, 2007

50% - not bad...

Qtpies7 Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Bummer, but you did get some accomplished! I am working on a goal, too, to win a Wii, or $500, lol. I have two TT's up, on qtpies7 and The Good Stuff, I linked to both.

Lara Angelina Thursday, October 11th, 2007

I think you did just fine! Do you know the average percentage of work done on an average work day in an average American office is at 60%? See? You are doing just fine!!
Happy TT!

Sarah Thursday, October 11th, 2007

I have so much reading I am dying to catch up on. I think it will have to wait until college is done and I am not reading everyone else's picks.

Denise Patrick Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Sorry you got sick. Maybe next time you have some time off you can finish up.

Happy TT!

Cecily R Thursday, October 11th, 2007

I agree with Nicholas. Six successes is great in my book!

Ann Aguirre Thursday, October 11th, 2007

At least you finished your short story. Congrats!

Sparky Duck Thursday, October 11th, 2007

It was an ambitious list, so 50% isnt bad. I would have been wasted alot of the time myself

PJ Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Did you enjoy Fatboy? I loved it.

Damozel Thursday, October 11th, 2007

My whole house is a tip, as you Brits say. But I think you should feel pretty good about getting any of it done. "Run Fat Boy Run"?? I was trying to imagine what this could be about.

Wolfie Thursday, October 11th, 2007

I planned many things too..but usually fail b'cos I sleep too much..hehee..

Jackie Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Better some than none!! :)

Janet Thursday, October 11th, 2007

8 days? That's quite a cold! hope you're feeling better.

Lori Thursday, October 11th, 2007

It sounds like you made one heck of a dent in your list:) Good job!! Happy TT.

WorksForMom Thursday, October 11th, 2007

seriously, you're failed miserablies have me cracking up.

jenn Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Good luck with all of those things.
Happy TT!

Malcolm: Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

When I am off from work, I am lucky if I accomplish half of what I plan do get done. I had never heard the slang term "tip" until I read your TT. I found an online British slang dictionary to set me straight. I love the Internet!

The Gal Herself Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

Oh, please don't say you "failed miserably." Looks like you accomplished a great deal. So you missed on some. Let's accentuate the positive!

Nicholas Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

Six successes -- well done!

Tink Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

Ah well, you can always try again the next day... ;-)
My TT shares 13 quotes by W.B. Yeats.

yh Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

I can never tidy my room... I always end up doing one of my TT. lol!

ellen b Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

Ok I say blame the weather and your illness too. Happy TT to you...

Chelle Y. Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

I am addicted to Facebook now! :)

I failed at many things I have planned to do this week.
