    Default In lieu of self control...

    I've been avoiding work the last several days, typically getting around 2 hours of productivity out of an 8 hour day. I've incurred enough of a productivity debt by now, so I really need to get on it. These evil forums are one of my primary avoidance channels. So I'm not allowed back on here until 6:30 pm, Central Daylight Time (that's GMT-5).

    If anyone sees me here before that time, please spank me. (I reserve the right to selectively sustain or withdraw this offer at my discretion, based on the individual responding.)
    I'm not a procrastinator. I'm a long-term planner.

    Sounds like one of my work days usually. If it doesn't have a deadline, I don't bother with it right away unless it's interesting.

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    Eh. You do realise that starting a thread like this is exactly what will keep you stuck on this site, do you?

    why not just go cold turkey for a week.
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    --T.S Eliot, The Wasteland

    I had to double-check that I wasn't the one who posted this thread.

    Don't take it out on the forums. That's biting the hand that feeds you.

    I ate cold turkey sandwiches every day for a few days in a row with no effect on my forum activity.

    Well, that's no fun! These threads aren't going to respond to themselves, you know.

    I believe you may have seen the distorted reality of a misinformed server. I actually did close my browser immediately after posting. I don't know how long it takes the site to decide you're not online. So it wasn't me! For realz. And... Princess foofarina? Seriously?

    I told you, that brick was intended for your neighbor. Y'know, the guy with the hairy back that never closes his blinds? So maybe just throw it at him.



    Anyway, I managed to stay away all day. I was kind of terrified that I was actually going to be productive, or something, and it would be this really long day. Thank god YouTube was there to bail me out.
