I'm talking with Big Jeff, and it suddenly occurs to me that I need to tackle some homework so I can play frisbee later on.
Jeff : Don't lie to me, McKee. I already know how this is going to go. You say "I'm going to tackle that homework." You'll immediately head to your little Linux box and say "Oh, I think I'm going to admire my website, kurt mckee dot org, for a little bit." Probably get in a few IM conversations.
Jeff : Then you'll probably head down to Chipotle with Andy Collins. And I don't mean "probably". I mean "more than likely". I mean "most definitely". Then you'll say "Man, I have to start on that homework." You'll come back and make sure your blog has been updated...maybe apply a few security updates. Then back down to Chipotle. By then it's 10 o'clock. You'll say "I really need to start on that homework!"
Jeff : But you'll say "Hmm...I have an XBox under my bed...and there's a big screen TV downstairs...and plenty of people in the dorm who like to play Halo..." Then the Halo tournament will begin. Around 2 A.M. you'll say "Wait, wasn't there something I needed to...oh yeah."
Jeff : And then you'll stay up all night doing the homework, and show up just long enough to turn it in and then leave.
Me : Wow, that's pretty accurate. I need to quote you on that on my blog.
Jeff : Right on schedule, McKee.
