I am going to attempt to overcome my time-miserlyness, which I think will help with the whole situation. To give you an idea as to some of the logic that runs through my head, I'll decide against doing something, because the time taken to get there and back is too long. So instead I do nothing at all.
See how that can get depressing?
Feh. I'm going to continue being stingy with the time I give to work.
