I have a pile of work to do. It's do-able. It's not great, but it's there. I'm trying very hard to work up the will to do it. I also have a bunch of terrible craptastical ugly work to do. For tomorrow. Afternoon, at least.

But that's not why I'm a monster.

I'm going to live cheap for a while. I say that every once in a while but never do. I'm always too lazy to, say, pack a lunch.

I had some bits to do earlier in the week, they were tricky, or at least clever, or at least somewhat problematic. This, this is just reading and summarizing, essentially. There are numbers, but not that kind of numbers.

I will be a rock star.

I really need to get out of here. Not work, but life in general, the last few weeks have been very tiring and it makes me just sit at work and not get anything done.

Played Set last night. It was fun, but people were occasionally protesting when I wanted to deal more cards when there were no sets, instead wanting to stare a little longer. There are no sets! Sometimes it's easy to prove that there aren't any. Sometimes it's tricky. Either way, or maybe if there is, it's better to keep the game moving by dealing more, otherwise we'll be there all night. You know?

Quick easy maths question if you're familiar with Set: what's the most number of cards you can deal without there being at least one set?

Yeah, that game was great, back in elementary school.

Russian Set.

You can build the most elegant fountain in the world, but eventually a winged rat will be using it as a drinking bowl.
