Okay – it’s been a busy summer, heavy on work and drama, light on play and good health. Kind of feel a long way from where I want to be, so I’ve drawn up a list of goals. Here’s how I’m doing:

  • Change a diaper
  • Plan an invasion
  • Butcher a hog
  • Conn a ship
  • Design a building
  • Write a sonnet
  • Balance accounts
  • Build a wall
  • Set a bone
  • Comfort the dying
  • Take orders
  • Give orders
  • Cooperate
  • Act alone
  • Solve equations
  • Analyse a new problem
  • Pitch manure
  • Program a computer
  • Cook a tasty meal
  • Fight efficiently
  • Die gallantly (putting this one off for as long as possible)

    Mate, I thought I had the Die Gallantly one nailed imagine how disgusted I was when having joined the army at what I thought was the height of the Cold War, the Reds bloody pack in the towel.

    Also if you thought about it, then if the fight efficiently goal is to use as little effort as possible then you could simply come up behind someone and hit them really hard with something heavy do it well enough and you could get the “Comfort the dying” goal at the same time.
