To name just a few. Pretty old school, I guess  8)

Thanks a lot, Joe! There'll more, but I do wish I was more prolific than I am. I can always somehow manage to find something else to do than write. In my more hardcore procrastinating moods, I can stare at a blank wall for hours on end.  :-[

That's a very good idea, Joe! Or maybe just a big sign that says "GET TO WORK!!!"  :D

I used to have a background on my laptop that said, "Are you sure you've done enough today?"

But it started freaking me out later.  :D

Hah! Yeah, I think that would freak me out, too. Even freakier would be to set up an audio recording that said "Are you sure you've done enough today" every time you went to shut down your computer.  :o

Excellent! Waugh's "The Loved One" is one of my favourite books of all time.  :)
