-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
I hate waiting for things.
I hate knowing that I have some big thing that is either coming up, or that I have to do. I hate knowing that I have to have a conference call with someone at 1300, or sit in a meeting Monday, or be at the airport in six days.
Instead of filling the time until the event, I sit and stare at the clock, unproductive and becoming more and more annoyed with myself.
Instead of working on my various little projects, or doing some writing, I watch the shadows on the ceiling not move. I listen to the rain.
I sit here, and I wait.
that's better than the alternative. i'm fluent in forgetting everything i'm supposed to do.Posted by: shady at November 13, 2004 8:46 AM
pop a term and work on system. ;)
Seriously. I spend more time wanting to work on ATC than I spend working on ATC. It's unreal.
Waiting sucks.Posted by: solios at November 14, 2004 1:26 AM
