An Attempt at Productivity

“The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.”
 ~Emile Zola

I must accomplish something today.  I've got lots of things that need doing, but, even if it's just this blog post, I need to actually get something done.  Funny how sitting around internetzing and watching your cat sleep doesn't really leave you feeling like you've duly justified the air you breathe.

Cats do sleep in a variety of very interesting positions, though -- just sayin'.
