Story of My Life

Maybe not a resume, as such; but uncannily familiar even so.

Heh, I’m working on my resume, I told the kids to not disturb me etc. I just finished cleaning up several messy directories of empeethrees, and now I’m working my way through RSS feeds.

Sigh. Is there a support group? Online?

This looks like a very simplistic model. Where’s the part where you open the resume document after a pang of procrastinator’s guilt, read it for a while, and then do google scholar searches for new stuff on that problem you worked on a while back? … Then continue with RSS feeds, etc.

Well at least you stay away from Webcomics – they really suck up a lot of time.

Thanks for the laugh. I was in the middle of reading Blogs (obviously) when I came across this. I should have been working on a project I told myself I would work on this evening. Oh well, at least I have a smile on my face.

Seriously, we need a twelve step program.

Step 1: we admit we are powerless over our spiralling levels of faff — that every day we discover whole new plateaus of faff that we never suspected were possible…

Every day, in every way, I faff more and better.

Are you kidding? That’s my workday.

Just kidding corporate overlords!

Dang dang dang.

You are like so totally psychic.

I was planning to grade some papers from my math class and maybe review a few pages of a book manuscript, but it turned out to be necessary for me to post a comment here first.

I had *just* started updating my resume for the first time in ten years when I decided to check CT rather than keep going with this soul-destroying task (five minutes in)… I wonder if I can hire someone to update my CV for me?
