List Rules Only personal stuff you could actually do, not political stuff like "start a revolution." Let's keep it light.

We all procrastinate... and we all have things we just never get around to doing, but totally will! No, seriously. And then there are fitted sheets, which I just end up jamming into a sort of square and calling it a day. Iron shirts? Just throw them in the dryer for a few minutes. IRA? I'll open one next week. Clean under the couch, who looks under there? What are the things you keep meaning to do, but never do? Vote and make sure to add yours.
