    from the moment it's born you have to make the pig think you're its mother, that way it will follow you were ever you go and do everything you tell it.

    Pigs eat people fairly frequently

    Terry Vance Garner, 69, went to feed his animals last Wednesday on his farm by the coast, but never returned.
    His dentures and pieces of his body were found by a family member in the pig enclosure, but the rest of his remains had been consumed.

    "Then we found him in the pigsty with half his face eaten off."

    Push the Pig sounds like the ideal name for a bullshit business strategy book that sells millions.

    Let's brainstorm!

    Edit: how about we brainstorm?
    Took a rest stop that wasn't on the schedule

    A particularly ridiculous procrastination: I'd been putting off ringing HMRC for weeks, for fear that I would be on the phone for at least two hours....and it just got sorted in 9 minutes. That'll teach me (it probably won't).

    Peak procrastination was achieved in university for me, and my Master's Degree almost drove me mad.

    And I'd always, ALWAYS find that once I started writing these essays I'd been avoiding for weeks on end, that I actually enjoyed the writing process, except that I now had only an evening to write 5,000 words.

    With that stuff I think what causes the delay is the fear of writing something shit. Or maybe the fear of the effort that you know could come when you have to turn something shit into something good.

    Oh for a life of leisure!

    A life of leisure is very difficult. Much easier to work. the terrible thing about lesuire is the way it strips you of that fondly held delusion: if only I had the time I'd do something brilliant. If only I had time I'd be productive. Well, you won't.

    Well, being productive sounds counter-leisure to me.

    Perhaps you lack sufficient Puritan stringency

    Not a huge fan of this poem but it's been knocking around my head in relation to this topic.

    The Fascination of What’s Difficult
    BY WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS

    The fascination of what's difficult
    Has dried the sap out of my veins, and rent
    Spontaneous joy and natural content
    Out of my heart. There's something ails our colt
    That must, as if it had not holy blood
    Nor on Olympus leaped from cloud to cloud,
    Shiver under the lash, strain, sweat and jolt
    As though it dragged road metal. My curse on plays
    That have to be set up in fifty ways,
    On the day's war with every knave and dolt,
    Theatre business, management of men.
    I swear before the dawn comes round again
    I'll find the stable and pull out the bolt.
    Αι ψυχαί οσμώνται καθ΄ Άιδην.

    Just put some wd-40 on a door that's been creaking for ages. I feel godly. Like Barty when he brought that dead puppy dog back to life the other day.
