You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby 

My To Do list has gone AWOL and I'm buggered if I can remember what was on it.
So today I've been compiling a new one, although for ages the only task I could think of was "Find old To Do list."

All my To Do lists consist of three types of task - jobs that still need doing, and jobs that I've done but probably haven't heard the last of yet.
The third type is those jobs that never actually existed - I just make them up then cross lines through them to make it look like I'm good at getting stuff done. I can't even remember what my non-existent still-to-do jobs were.

There were also one or two blogging ideas on the lost list. Last week's Blonde One from Abba thing, for example, or Mike's "having an out of Boddington's experience."
And I was keeping a tally of every time Stella says "Superb."

I should still be able to use the Boddington's gag some time, but I'm cheesed off about having to set the clock back to zero on the Superb count.
I was saving them up like Co-op stamps - collect one hundred Superbs and you've earned the right to treat yourself to an mp3 player. Five hundred gets you a snazzy new camera, and so on and so forth, all the way up to a mid-life crisis affirming nippy two seater sports car, with a soft top, CD player and state of the art "self-awareness blocker" to make me oblivious to the fact that if I sit in it I'll look like a complete knob.

Stella walked passed as I was crossing out fictitious jobs on the new list.
"Somebody's been a busy boy," she smiled.
"Yeah, well. I don't like to let these things get on top of me," I replied.
"Fantastic!" she said, practically skipping back to her desk. "Tremendous! Wonderful! Sensational!"

The road is long with many a winding turn, as Eminem once said.
