We are chronic procrastinators. We started a group to encourage (or shame) each other into getting shit done.

Doing It with Some Excellent Cheeses

So … yeah, we’ve had Do-It Club for the past few weeks, even though I haven’t been updating the tumblr. Sorry about that … Anyway, this week was fun! Elizabeth is excellent at picking out cheese and Rebecca recited a part of a poem for us.
