1) I'd like to remember to not push backward away from the desk when I'm wearing earphones.

I'd like to be able to enter and leave a state of concentration more easily. Right now I get knocked out easily, and it takes too long to get back into one.
I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.

I used to have that problem.  I burned through about 1/2 dozen sets of headphones before I bought these...

Now, I walk all around the building with my headphones on.
I overslept this morning.  I was hitting the snooze button like it was my little sister.

I've been thinking about starting a thread about my procrastination problem, but...
It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.

Minor? Nothing.
Major? Oh honey, .... you don't have that much time to listen.

Yeah, it's an old joke about the procrastination thing, but I'm really serious. It's becoming a real problem with me on certain things, and I really have been thinking about starting a thread on it for about two weeks now. It's more of a major problem, but it's the first thing to come to mind.

Damn. I just responded to Biz's thread exactly as Mo did here, but before I read his. Oh well, I'll go edit it out later.
Shake your groove thing.

You are actually the person who inspired the thought in the first place. As I was getting kind of preachy to you in another thread, I started feeling a little guilt about my own personal issues.

Dude, if you did that, I might get around to posting in that!

Minor things I'd like to change . . . .

I don't know where the threshold for "minor" is, but I'm about tempted to trade in my libido and my need to sleep.  Also, my stupid elbow.

That and facial hair.  I hate shaving.
