Consider this…

by noseycow

Procrastination and prevarication are two of the most popular past times chez Nosey. While I consider that they are employed, by my family, ¬†with the sole objective of raising my blood pressure, academics say ‘NO!’ the reason is in the formula.

U=EV/ID.

“The ‘U’ stands for utility, or the desire to complete a given task. It is equal to the product of E, the expectation of success, and V the value of completion, divided by the product of I, the immediacy of the task, and D, the personal sensitivity to delay. ”

Well that explains it then! I was so impressed that I came up with my very own formula which explains how much chocolate a woman will eat in any given day.

choc

X=CH/(O/C)

X is amount of chocolate, C is the value of laundry tasks to be done, H is number of handbags not bought over the previous year, and O is the snugness of fit of favourite jeans.
