Why I've been silent

A few days ago, I had this "bright" idea: I'd sit down and try to get out of my way all the projects I have pending work-wise. No Dexter or Torchwood, no comics, no reading (save on the subway), no fic writing, no working out, just work [1]. Then I'd be able to just react to things as they came in, keep my queue empty, and be able to do things in a more relaxed, focused way (i.e., spend more time doing the important stuff, like research, learning, and figuring out what's porn in Dexter-land).

*hollow laugh* Riddle me this: If I'm working my ass off and I can barely keep my pending list from *growing*, what the hell is going on while I'm being fannish? Arguably, the trick is that things in my to-do list just expire as my bosses' priorities shift before I need to do anything, or until they get critical enough that they rise to the top of my list. Right now, I'm doing *everything*.

Oh, well. I will not be beaten, dammit. *puts on his "I Can If I Try Hard Enough" Hat of Bruce's Not-so-realistic Mindset, goes back to work*

[1] J, M1, M2, K: The "work only" rules above does *not* apply to spending time with you.
