The urge to clean one's room, bathroom, or workspace fully knowing that something far more important must be done in the near future because "it needed to be cleaned." Usually occurs just before studying for a big test, writing a paper, or beginning some other undesirable yet significant task. Often justified by rationalizing, "at least I'm not being lazy."
I know I've gotta study for my math midterm on Wednesday, but I couldn't possibly do it in a messy room - looks like it's time for some procrasticleaning.
