Should I or shouldn't I?

Hiatus? I normally take breaks when my post count nears a milestone. And truth be told, I've spent too much time here lately and work is calling my name very loudly. I don't deny it's fun sparring and carrying on around here for the most part. But it's not exactly productive... If I stayed, it would mean another 500 or 1000 posts before I could take leave again I know that doesn't impress some people around here, but still. I have given up on posting on craigslist R&R, and I've cut my MarketWatch posting way back. That counts for something, right? Does anyone else find internet forums to be a time sink, while actual real-world tasks are piling up? Am I an addict?

Oh. Also, I hate people who start threads about themselves.

Oh, and Bear: You'll love the W211 E-Class. I still say it has the best combination of precise handling and smooth, supple ride of any sedan in the world. Kinda miss mine sometimes

I don't believe I've ever heard a more shrill piercing cry for help in all my life. I'd offer you some of my homemade mesquite-flavored sage advice, but I'm sorta busy right now.

Be careful Marsden, the last time I needed a break, they sent the enforcers after me. i.e McBear & Yosey. Watch you step man.

That's because when you went away, it sounded like left us a suicide note, you fucking psycho!


Marsden - let me just say, I feel ya. A prioritized daily task list does wonders for helping me make sure I'm getting things done. Some days, BWOT serves as the surrogate for my former cigarette smoking habit. Others, it makes me want to start up again.

It'll be here when you get back. Congrats on 3k. Zero fluff....impressive.
