This Ain't Sarcasm

I've been listening to the judicial confirmation hearings all day long, for two days straight. Not because I have a particularly strong interest in politics or the confirmation process itself, or some kind of perverted need to hear the drawl of long-winded senators. The reason is simple: it has increased my productivity. Ever since I tuned in, I have been finishing projects in record time. I listen to senators postulate endlessly, to Judge Roberts' brief, jargonistic replies, and I find myself designing my pages faster. As they all blather on, I'm arranging text and graphics more efficiently.

I can't explain it. It doesn't make sense to me. But who am I to argue with progress? By all means, senators, perpetuate the discourses and diatribes. I'll keep listening, and getting more done.

I listened to it too! And now that you mention it, I did get a lot of work done. You might be on to something here.

maybe because it's SO freakin' BORING so you are trying to drown it out by concentrating on work.

hey, this is totally unrelated, but... HAVE YOU BEEN WATCHING BSG?!

holy crap. xena looks hot as a blonde.

Of course! BSG is my opium.

I always thought Lucy Lawless was way too mannish and freaky in Xena. (I much preferred her sidekick, Gabrielle). But I have to say, she really did look fantastic in that episode, like a totally different person. Plus I liked the accent. She needs to stick with that look.
