Structured procrastination

I found this essay called "Structured Procrastination" the other day. I can't remember how I got there through the twists and turns of the net, but it made me laugh like no other.

I have been intending to write this essay for months. Why am I finally doing it? Because I finally found some uncommitted time? Wrong. I have papers to grade, textbook orders to fill out, an NSF proposal to referee, dissertation drafts to read. I am working on this essay as a way of not doing all of those things. This is the essence of what I call structured procrastination, an amazing strategy I have discovered...
It's very true and very wickedly twisted and I feel like I know myself better having read it.
