Procrastination CRUSHED; Christmas Cards Sent in October
October 13, 2001
MANITOU SPRINGS, CO -- Procrastination has been conquered!
Steve Garufi boggled the minds of locals in his Manitou Springs community
when he announced the completion of filling out of his Christmas
cards today on October 13, the earliest date known in human history.
There are still 73 days remaining before Christmas Day.
Steve completed his
Christmas cards today and was lauded for his amazing speed.
According to friends, the owner of this web site wanted to
"squash all forms of procrastination" and was glad he got a large
jump on Christmas season activities.
Erica P., who seemed very unimpressed with Steve's "shenanigans" in
a previous article, was just as
direct with Steve while Steve wrote inside Christmas cards
at a local cafe in Manitou Springs.
"You're doing your Christmas cards today? But it's October ...
that is so bizarre." blurted Putnam, in disbelief.
Sipping a mocha at the popular Manitou Springs coffee shop,
Garufi filled out Christmas cards that had a snowy winter scene
with a lighted home in the forefront.
The total number of Christmas cards he finished and plans to send is three. Two were
individually written to his grandmothers living in New York City
and New Jersey. The third was written to Camille L., his
neighbor from his childhood home in New Jersey, who was randomly
selected in Steve's address book. Sherri, the cafe worker well-known
for her passive aggression battle with Steve during the summer,
was given responsiblity for choosing who would receive the third and final Christmas card.
"I wrote two cards out to my grandmothers, and then I just gave
the address book to Sherri and asked her to pick someone randomly."
explained Steve, "I told her to follow her heart and give me a name."
"Who is Patrick Murphy?! That was one of the guys from the Texas 7! …Well my gutt tells me (the card goes) to Camille."
Sherri said, pointing to her name in the book.
According to Steve, the cards have been fully signed,
sealed and are ready to be mailed first thing on Monday.
Next on his agenda is placing a Christmas tree in his living room before October 31.
