No spare time

I was going to write about the broohaha over at Freethought Blogs and Thunderf00t accessing an email listerserve he was removed from. But then I thought, what an odious little toad he is, but I don't have time. Plus, he's an odious little toad and it's not worth it.

So I thought I'd write about a post PZ Myers has at Pharyngula on a Boing Boing article by Maggie Koerth Baker about fundamentalist Christians decrying mathematics (set theory - great article and worth reading). I like PZ Myers & blog and I am kind of a firebrand atheist myself, but I thought his analogy to mushrooms missed a fundamental point in the argument about fundamentalist Christians and their blinkered beliefs. But...I don't have time

I had and have a bunch of things that I want to write about, some serious (see above), some infuriating (see more above), some less serious and some even fun. Some about careers, some about networking and the value of a professional network. Some about events I've been to along these lines.

None of which I have the time or energy to do. I think the lack of sleep is making me into a zombie. I love being a father and husband, but I wish I had more time.

  • Welcome to the other side, dude. Your calendar will open up again sometime in the future though. But you might want to spend the extra time being a father with someone who finally interacts with you and stuff.

      I think I'll find a balance eventually LOL

      My wife is starting back to work after a long maternity leave + summer break (works in the school system), so I think as we adjust to being a working family there will be a greater sense of routine and pockets of time might open up...

  • I have the same problem. I've noticed the activation energy for blog writing is super high these days. I really have to get pissed off about something to even entertain the idea of sitting down for an hour and writing about it. You're not alone.

      I've also gotten in the habit of not taking my laptop home with me and trying to write on the iPad is a huge PitA! I can get all riled up and ready to go and then think about trying to type on the iPad screen and a wave of ennui crashes in
