It doesn't help that most of the stuff on these surfaces need something *done* to them in addition to being put away, or I need to "create" their ultimate resting places.
Well, some progress is better than none.
Speaking of "doing stuff before putting away", one of the things I wanted to do was comment on two more quotes from bookbookbook. I'll do that here, so I can then clear off one more item from my desk. ;)
The first quote is by Woody Allen:
I took a speed reading course and read War and Peace in twenty minutes. It involves Russia.At the time I was reading a paper at an exceedingly slow rate. (I'm still not done the paper, but I've set it aside while I make progress on my code.) I was lamenting at the geological speed at which I read papers, and then found this quote... and realized that although I read *really* slowly, I also understand what I read. I felt much better about my ponderous pace.
The second quote is by Douglas Adams:
If we see you smoking we will assume you are on fire and take appropriate action.I like this quote!
