Love the phrase "weighing the cat" for procrastination. We use "stuffing the chicken" for the act of faffing around doing unnecessary things when you should be leaving the house, after my mother-in-law gave that as the reason for keeping everyone waiting at the door for half an hour.

To provide balance (as the BBC does so well) to the article about Methodist Halls becoming nightclubs, I am part of a church that meets in a building that was formerly a mens' club, amongst other things. There are of course many new churches occupying industrial and commercial buildings all over the country as well!
