Distilled day

Why is it that when I know I have an important task to complete, so important that I clear all other responsibilities to devote a full day to uninterrupted focus, I don't actually start anything substantial until about 16:00, then barely blink until 19:30?

It kind of works, but the exhilaration of having achieved total concentration (sometimes continuous partial attention just isn't good enough) doesn't really outweigh the minor self-loathing of having prevaricated all day (I did that too often during my PhD, so there's considerable emotional baggage) and slight burnout afterwards.

Need. Caffeine. Now.

No, toilet first.

Hmm. Legs asleep.
