"It is not the multitude of alehouses...that occasions a general disposition to drunkenness among the common people; but that disposition, arising from other causes, necessarily gives employment to a multitude of alehouses."

So today is both Easter and April Fools Day.  I guess the former is why there's no DA prank at the moment.:Only at Easter: 
I rather suspect that a significant portion of my problem is that there is a surfeit of ways to fritter away my time.  That is, if I had the self-discipline to simplify my life it wouldn't be nearly as screwed up as it is.   Accidentally deleted about 5 years worth of bookmarks from my browser today.  At first I was dismayed.  Then I tried to salvage them from a backup.  Then I stopped to consider---most of those links are to things I've not bothered to look at for years.  SOME of those links may be important, certainly.  Maybe 3 or 5 of them...10 tops.  But if I *really* needed the others it seems I could simply google the topic again.

My life could be worse...on so many levels I'm doing reasonably well at the moment if I try to be objective about it.  But I've scattered my attention and my resources and so it's like spinning the wheels on ice...faster I go the more I don't move anywhere.  I really, really need to retrench.  Where to start.  I think I'm actually going to have to set myself some time limits for how much time I spend on the computer.  But I'm not sure I can actually do that.  So this is what it feels like to be a junkie.  Bleh.

"...rational beings, on the contrary, are called persons, because their very nature points them out as ends in themselves, that is as something which much not be used merely as means, and so far therefore restricts freedom of action (and is an object of respect)."

  • Drinking: tea
There's a deck of cards that comes packaged with a booklet that explains what the phrase on each of the cards is intended to convey.  It's called "The Observation Deck" and it's supposed to help writers get in touch with their own creativity.  One of the cards advises to 'follow the scent' and the booklet suggests for this card an exercise: list 25 scents (both pleasant and not so), and then think about what sort of scents a person would encounter in the particular situation you're trying to write about.  Most of the scents I listed are from my everday life though some of them are  recollected memories.  But one memory in particular stands out.  This concerns a fellow that at one time I worked with.  He was quite the formal gentleman, both in manners and in his choice of clothes, and from a distance looked quite polished and dignified.  Thing is, up close his breath smelled like he was in dire need of a professional teeth cleaning.  A wet dog wouldn't smell that bad.  It was all I could do to pretend I didn't notice it when he was around... and I made the effort because it was almost certain that he'd be offended if it was plain that I noticed such a lapse in basic hygiene.  It's not that I care much how people choose to dress, but the contrast between the fine suit with the square in his breast pocket and the scent that came out of his mouth made all his care in what sort of clothes he wore look a bit ridiculous.
