Bell Pepper and Ranch Dressing

Hmm, what can I say about bell pepper and ranch dressing? Well, not really anything. But I have to think of something. Because if I don't, I will have to focus instead on the English essay I am avoiding. It's THE BIG ONE. Since I started my English class, we have had numerous essays. I have done well on all of them. But each one has been leading up to THE BIG ONE. We were given the assignment last week. I choose my topic, got approval, and started on my merry little way. Brainstorming, outlining, and detailing. On Friday, I decided I would write the paper that night, and turn it in on Monday. I generally have my papers finished shortly after they are assigned, so this was nothing different. But every time I sat down to write it, nothing happened. I did that all weekend long. Sit down with notebook > think about essay > stare at notebook > decide to try again when my mind had cleared and put notebook away. Progress made? Zero. So today, I changed my topic. I did a little brainstorming. I am now ready to write my essay. Or so I thought. I have done the dishes, cleared the table, put two loads of laundry in the washer, folded one out of the dryer, made the bed, straightened the bedroom, talked to my sister, talked to my LL about the furnace, called my dad, called my step-mom, written a couple of blogs, checked my email. Wow, what a list, huh? It's amazing how much I can get done when I am avoiding something!

Dang it! I shouldn't have eaten my bell pepper and ranch dressing so quickly.
