After spending waaayyyy to much of my morning enjoying the ekphrasis prompt in my Turtle Medicine blog, I need to finish editing my affadavit so I can send it to my lawyer.  But I don't want to write about it (unless I need to vent when I finish).  @lobsterquotes is really on a roll this morning, so in this post I'll try to capture as many of my favorites throughout the afternoon as I work, or a bunch that he's done this morning to keep me positive as I work.  Even if I only accomplish a few.

(And since procrastination is one of them and I've got a great list here, I'm off to eat and finish the affadavit)
