I need a new excuse...

... or just more of them. My standard answer when I'm asked to do something I have absolutely no desire to do (like move cinderblocks from a friend's basement Saturday afternoon) is "I'd love to but I'm washing my hair that day. Or I have a cake in the oven. Or I have an arms deal in Tangiers. I don't remember which." Well, that's getting a bit old; I think I got it originally from Bored Of The Rings. So, are there some different excuses I could put in there? I'd like to still keep the one about the arms deal in there. It lead to an amusing conversation with some guy I knew who lived in a barnhouse and had a cinder block problem.
