It's not all been work that's doing it, though I'm majorly into coding my project. Binary manipulations are doing my nut in. Got to finish not only the skeleton coding of my project but also a mathematica notebook for a group project needs doing by Wednesday. The outside world is going to be a mystery to me before next weekend at the earliest.
Of course, as happens when the workload kicks in, I can't concentrate worth shit. I'm drifting off watching old A-Team reruns while I'm writing this. I can't concentrate on coding when I have ideas for my System Shock RPG that I have to scrawl down (and yes, I haven't dropped that. It's still in dead-tree format though). I'm writing mods for the Fallout PnP game purely to avoid programming bit-shifts. Anything to avoid having to work.
It's not that I want to do this. The ever-approaching deadlines scare the ever-loving crap out of me. But even so I cannot bring myself to focus. Needless to say, this is a bad thing. Less time = more stress = even less of an ability to focus. Aargh.
Also not helping is that I smoked my last cigarette today. Thanks to my lack of the filthy lucre, I can no longer afford to buy cigarettes. Hence, I have quit rather than starving myself of little life-giving things like curry and coffee.Hopefully, I can live without. If the worst comes to the worst, I'll start hand-rolling.
inscrutable's Friends List Fight Club idea appears to be taking off. I know a few people have got it from me, I'm not sure who it's propagated to from me, though. I want it to be a big thing, mainly because it's the kind of thing LiveJournal needs more of.
Holy fuck. I just zoned out for half an hour watching the Simpsons and playing with wmWeather's settings. That should show just how bad this is. Fortunately, I now have the damn thing reporting just how I want it to. And XEarth centred on where I am.
But now, Buffy and vino.
