Plan B

Self-discipline didn't work. Today I tried to implement my "no computer use in the morning" plan. I've been late to many an appointment thinking I'd just read one little news story, or just skim the headlines, before losing the next three hours of my life to the Internet. I can't help it. I now know not to boil water and kill time by going online for a second. At a certain point there will be a funny smell permeating the air and then I'll realize that water has ceased to boil and, in its place, the actual pot is cooking.

So today I didn't turn the computer on until after lunch. Although I haven't gotten a lot of work done as far as writing goes, I did manage to buy groceries and wash my car. That's something.

I'm now off to get a lesson on how to use Final Cut Pro with audio.

Oh, the shoot was fine, although my thighs are killing me. Practically every shot involved running in heels. But we were done by around 9:30am so it was nice and short. We shot the scene at this outdoor mall-ish kind of place in Glendale before any of the shops opened up. So in this one alley in Glendale yesterday, had you been walking by, you'd have seen an angry black mob of women running in heels and also rioting. Mild rioting. There were offices in the complex so some of the hard workers in their office on a Sunday at 7am witnessed this.

Okay, now I'm off.

I take my To-Do list and do things in the order that they seem easiest. So things like breakfast, coffee, TV, porn, email, news sites, Swisher's Untitled Blog Project, movies, working out, washing cars, and work, all tend to happen before the hard stuff.

Jury duty, bills, family gatherings, taxes, housework, fixing cars, financial crap, all come second. Or third.

I smell something burning...

Hello! This is a great blog. I just got back home from shopping with the wife and the kids and decided to log on and do some web surfing.(needed a break if you know what I mean) I came across your blog and really enjoyed it. Not many people keep their blogs up to date and most of the blogs I do fine are not even relevant to the blog topic. I bookmarked your blog for future reference.
Anyways keep up the great work and if you don�t mind I will forward your blog off to a few of my buddies. Thanks a bunch!adult best hosting vds web

I really must say this is one of the most beneficial blogs I have ever come across. I am not just saying that to kiss up to you! I am doing a research paper for my master degrees and spent the last 10 hours (and 12 cups of coffee) researching this area topic. So many blogs have generic information but yours is different. I can actually apply some of this information to my works. No worries I will give you credit in my references. I took it upon myself to put you in my favorites and will visit back to let you know how my grade ends up. Many thanks!best small business web hosting.

Hi,

You have an interesting blog. One important thing in SEM is building links through multiple websites. But while hosting multiple websites you should make sure that these websites are hosted on multiple ip addresses. One such websites for SEO hosting is www.multipleiphosting.com.
