Welcome back to what I hope will be a better update schedule. Work's still going on, but one course is over and I got a big chunk handed in yesterday for the other one, so I'm gonna let myself make updates again (small ones until I'm completely done).

Those who visit the forums will have noticed that the near-impossible has happened: I actually did something with Fiver By Committee! For those who don't know or don't remember, Fiver By Committee is a forum thing where we take a movie one scene a time and members post their fiverified versions of the scene, then vote on which one's best. The first one (The Matrix) has been basically done for a long time, and I'm going to publish it in the June anniversary event (as indeed I meant to do last year).

In the meantime, we're choosing our next target. If you think you might like to join in, go vote in the poll. Most of the regulars have already voted, but I'll leave it open a couple more days for those just reading about it now.

"I'm gonna let myself make updates again."

I suddenly got the mental image of two of you (an amazing feat by itself, since I don't know what you look like). One Zeke (Zeke1) is restraining the other one (Zeke2) to keep him away from the computer.

Zeke2: I have to update!
Zeke1: Not a chance! Your coursework takes precedence!
Zeke2: Pretty please?
Zeke1: No! Back to your books!

That's exactly how it goes. Unfortunately, Zeke1 lacks the power to make Zeke2 actually DO the work. His only power is guilt, which can stop me from doing other things but not always make me do the thing I'm supposed to.

He's like Evil Kirk from that one episode of TOS with the powder and the transporter.

But no eyeliner.

They are?

(looks at nearly-finished email reply that begins "Yes, I am very interested in BIG BIG PROFITS WITH ROMUCORP. My credit card number is as follows...")

Maybe I won't send this just yet.

Hm yes I know that feeling. When you need to do two things, you want to do one, but you need to do the other first, so you go do something completely irrelevant.

I've found that the secret is to just ignore the things you need to do until until it becomes a matter of life and death. By then, there's plenty of motivation, so it gets done. Simple.

That's Negative-Nancy thinking...

You should be *positive*!

Think of it instead as an unrequested heat-light surplus, and redecorating opporutnity

Plus it's a boon if you happen to like to draw in charcoal.

Free night camoflage paint, too! My, burning the house down is suddenly starting to look like a positively good idea.
