Going home  
Well, the work day is done. I just logged my out time in Kronos (the time management system here at BM), and now I can leave to my abode.

I have a lot of things I need to do when I get there. Mostly dishes, cleaning, and some food prep things like making croutons and finalizing my grocery list for this evening.

I am putting it off not because it isn't nice out or because I have this amazing love of this office (though I like my work and all), but out of habit. I think that I stay late at many jobs because of the desire to finish what I start (in this case I ran about three minutes over, which is no big deal) and inertia.

I can sit at my desk or stay in the stacks at the library for hours, just plugging away at my projects. Before I know it, I have been there for 30 minutes later than I am supposed to be. As it is, I will be leaving about 30 minutes late today because I decided to update my journal here after I finished working rather than wait till I can connect at home.

And remember kids (from the guy doing "Science Circus" at the MoS on Sunday):
And object at rest tends to stay in motion... *grr*

Go ahead and leave the dishes, you're doing all the massive amounts of cooking after all. I swear, you make up for cooking only fake mashed potatoes for the rest of the year with the amount of cooking you somehow manage to fit into the few days before Thanksgiving.
