self portrait (escher)

    ego:
    What are your big plans for the weekend?

    self:
    Oh, that was such a loaded question. What task are you about to hoist upon us?

    ego:
    Hoist!

    self:
    Come on. You've got something in mind. Out with it.

    ego:
    Well, actually...

    self:
    You just got the new '24' boxed set and you want us to watch both seasons from start to finish.

    ego:
    ...yeah.

    self:
    48 hours of television, crammed into 48 hours.

    ego:
    It's a three-day weekend.

    self:
    But... productive use of time! We could write a screenplay. Solve world hunger. We could alphabetize something.

    ego:
    Here, I'll start the first episode!
I think we're 13 hours in at this point. I'll be taking a short break for some more passive entertainment - our local theater company's dedicating their new show to the memory of my father, and the big gala opening thing is tonight.

All quality stuff, you understand. I'm enjoying it immensely. But, I've been frustrated for a while that I'm still not accomplishing things as quickly as I'd like to, and this isn't going to help with that.
