Procrastination Stopped In Its Tracks!
(Steve Sends Out Christmas Cards Six Months Before Holiday Season)
June 9, 2004
MANITOU SPRINGS, CO -- Procrastination has been completely destroyed!
In a rush of astounding self-motivation, Steve "ColoradoGuy" Garufi
broke through his procrastinating tendencies after writing and
mailing out all of his Christmas cards for
the upcoming holiday season in late December.
"I'm so proud of myself." stated the Internet personality,
"I wanted to get all my Christmas cards out before summer officially started.
Six months can go by pretty quickly."
Inside each handwritten card, Steve included
a spiffy-looking ColoradoGuy
business card and the following disclaimer to
those who might view it odd that Steve sent his Christmas cards so early.
He wrote: "I assure you that I am not under the
influence of any mind-altering substances."
Neighbor Mark Clayton
of Manitou Springs (see adjacent picture),
pondered whether people might think of him differently, "Uh, I just have a
question for you. You're a therapist, right? Don't you think people might
think you're a little strange if they knew you were
sending your Christmas
cards on June 9th?"
Others questioned the practicality of Steve's act.
"Now let me get this straight. You go months and months
without cleaning the dishes in your (kitchen) sink, and then you
say you're beating procrastination with your Christmas cards ...
what is wrong with this picture?" said Lisa R., a former co-worker from Steve's old job.
Some have even mocked Steve's judgement, being that it is "Steve Bangs His Head" week, in
which daily video clips on the front page show him smashing his head against
ordinary household items, such as a thick phone book, an indoor fan and a stainless
"Look, I've got some serious problems with procrastination
and this way people can hang up their Christmas cards (in their
living room or on their refrigerator) for over six months."
replied Steve, in defensive tone at his downtown Manitou Springs apartment.
"Everyone have a Merry Freakin'
Christmas and get off my case, okay?" he added.
In 2001, Steve sent out
his Christmas cards in late October, which at the time, was
the earliest he had ever sent his holiday cards out.
