Top Five

Reasons why I can't bring myself to do the task I'm supposed to be working on:

1. It's boring
2. I had foul for lunch, and my brain cells are still trying to process why
3. The comments on the New York Magazine Gossip Girl recap (don't judge me) are hilarious and I can't stop reading them
4. I'm trying to preempt my boss' eventual questions related to why I haven't finished my work
5. I'm trying to think of ways to dumb down this task so that the intern can do it

The way I see it, I have three options:

1. Do the work
2. Don't do the work
3. Take a nap under my desk

Right now, I'm thinking of doing myself a solid by combining 2 and 3, and calling it a day. Do you have any other ideas?

you'd be surprised at how we manage to do all the three simultaneously in the software world! it's a paradox, but when there's a deadline, we deliver yes, but then again, we manage to deal with boredom we experience in the way :d

oh and btw, your brain cells will be overcome way before they could process it - that's the secret of foul I reckon.

you have fun rooting for Egypt tonight, okay :d

The answer is two. Always, two. Only use three on days when you do have some foul.
Also, those gossip girl comments are gold. Thanks for the entertainment!
