A wise man once said "to feed the body's compulsions is to starve the soul."
Actually, no one ever said that. I just made that up. Impressed? I thought you would be. So since no wise person (except TravWise) ever said that about feeding the body's compulsions, I'm just going to go ahead and feed one of mine:
List making. Oh yes, you know how it goes. That inescapable feeling that your life is a chaotic jumble that can only be relieved by filling pads of paper with lists of to-dos and neatly checking them off one by one. You know you want to make one, now. But wait. Read mine first. Then when you make your own, you can write "Slake my thirst for the incredibly stimulating written word by reading a delightfully creative blog."
