The Incredible Inverse Efficiency Engine

Most of my readers will have noticed that I've said almost nothing over the past two weeks. Some of my readers also know that the first rough draft of my Note is due next Monday. Others will notice that I just posted a long blog entry. Too-clever-by-half readers will thus assume that because I've not been blogging, I've been getting my note done, and that the new entry means I'm nearly finished.

Actually, nothing could be further from the truth. One of the curious mysteries of life is that I post more on days in which I've been most productive. For one thing, if I'm blogging, it means I've been sitting in front of my computer, which means work has more or less inevitably gotten accomplished. If I'm blogging, it means I've not been playing some computer game, watching television, reading a novel, or involving myself in some ill-considered romance.

So I'm more productive when I'm blogging. What does that mean for you, dear reader? Well, given that I've got the aforementioned Monday deadline looming before me like a hideous beast, and given that I've not done half of what I should have by now, you're likely to hear a lot from me.

You may consider this good news or forewarning, I suppose.

Yup. Since having more free time (ie not being on an MBA) I began to blog much less and have pretty much stopped now.
I've noticed. Which is a pity, because I enjoyed reading.
