I was desperate, so I read your list. My to-do list is much shorter: eat, sleep, work (actually take day off), fish and drink beer with wife.

See, this is what happens when you just lie about eating bon-bons and reading trashy novels.

Good luck with all. Disperse what you can. Set fire to a few... let us know if we can take one or two.

1. Eat till you're tired
2. Sleep till you're hungry
