  1. Well, at least it’s being honest and forthright with you. I mean how may times has it just gone with the plan of fucking everything you have to do over without notice?

  2. Lean forward, so that the drool runs out of your mouth. Works better that way.

    Looking forward to when I get home at end of day and can shut down higher functions too!

  3. Mine just left me a note saying “I wiiiiillll sloooooowwww dooooowwwwnnn toooooo aaaa veeeery loooow speeeeeeed riiiiiiight noooooowww” and I replied “Ooooookaaaayyy. Teeeeaaa aaand toooaaast iiiit iiiiiiss. Theeee beeeeed looooks cooooooomfyyyyyy” so we’re on the same level.

  4. Happens to me when I am working on a nasty bit of code and a hard deadline is coming up fast. (Not fast as in MPH, Not fast as in light speed, fast as in around 12 AU per second.) I think it may be related to replacing sleep with caffeine.

  5. There’s a Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy character who had a mind and body that had filed for divorce. Can’t remember his (their) name(s).

  6. Dave, That’s it!

    I also just remembered that a long time ago, my Brain used to send me video messages saying Uncle Gadge is in trouble.

  7. [Deleted because a) not on topic, b) this is something that is best sent through e-mail, c) I can’t do a damn thing about it anyway — JS]

  8. My dear, departed Mom once said, “My brain is in a wheelchair, rollllling around!” An interesting condition, indeed.

  9. In the primordial mists of whatever past, you wrote that one of your objectives was to maintain the discipline of the daily deadline. What happens when a daily columnist — someone who makes their living that way, I mean — has total brain fade-out? Do they beg the editor to do a “Best of” re-run? Does the editor say something like, “Well, if you don’t have an idea, I do: Describe the effects of cochineal on the haberdasheries of 17th-century Europe. Have 500 words for me in three hours.” Are they hung from a meathook above the bullpen as a deterrent to other deadline deadbeats? What happens in a copy-dependent working environment?

  10. My brain and I get along fine, it’s the arthritic joints that wreak havoc. Typing with left hand today…

  11. So how does one’s brain send a message to one’s self. Does it go through E-Mail, Twitter, SMS, postit note or fax machine?

  12. Sorry to bother you, but did you change e-mail address?
    (I’m Lee, korean translator. You might recall, our last cantact was two years ago…)

  13. I not to mention my guys appeared to be checking out the best secrets and techniques
    from your site and at once I got a terrible suspicion I
    never expressed respect to you for those strategies.
    My men are already joyful to study them and have now in fact
    been making the most of those things. Thank you for really being
    really thoughtful and for utilizing these kinds
    of very good things most people are really desirous to be informed on.
    Our own sincere apologies for not expressing gratitude to
    sooner.
