Suicide list

Over the past several weeks I've been working hard to whittle down my to-do list, and I've been pretty successful. My computer desktop is clean, and the sticky note that contains my list of things I need to do is the shortest it's been since... maybe ever. I've been dutifully working through every task on the list, making sure that I've tied up all of the loose ends. I'm one step away from starting to give away my worldly possessions in preparation for committing suicide. (The key there is to keep all of your stuff.) I've got things to do tomorrow, and a measly two long-term tasks, and then that's it. Pretty soon I might be able to pick up on one of my side projects that have lain dormant for so long. Or, like, get adequate sleep for a while. I feel a slight tinge of pride in myself.

Yeah, an interesting and unremarked-upon fact about worldly possessions is that, if you give them all away, you'll definitely commit suicide, whether it was in your plans or not.

Yep. I think I read that on Wikipedia.
