"I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use -- silence, exile, and cunning." -- James Joyce
My father said, Anything sufficiently procrastinatored becomes unnecessary. See? And thanks for a text to point to.
And also we have the [in]famous quotation: "Masturbation is just like procrastination, it's fun at first, but in the end you're just screwing yourself."
I'll have to read that.Later.
Pretty funny, Tom.
