You can burn your paper fingers in the ashtray
It was only a few weeks ago, but if you either missed Mr. Blank's first Vignette or simply forgot about it already, you can read it right here.
I've decided to try and do something about my ridiculous backlog of non-urgent emails. I'm utilizing a radical new idea called "replying to them." My goal is to respond to an entire month's worth of neglected messages every day or two. It sounds vaguely admirable until you find out the month I just completed is August of 2005. Those emails are 8 months old! Isn't that sad? When I write my responses, it feels as though I am travelling back in time.
