Drastic Measures

Posted Wednesday, April 7, 2010, at 9:33 AM

Where's my razor?
I have upon occasion had a hard time with procrastination. I keep meaning to do something about that, but I haven't gotten around to it.

But I just read that the Greek orator, Demosthenes, in order to force himself to stay home and finish his orations, shaved half his head so that he would be ashamed to go out in public. And Victor Hugo would occasionally take off all his clothes, give them to his valet and order him not to return them to him until he was finished writing.

So I'm thinking I might get a few things done if I just throw away all my pants and get a mohawk.

Dye the mohawk a brilliant shade of chartreuse..............
