Time sink tasks

There are a few maintenance-type jobs which just seem to take forever. Work that never seems to show progress, or where the progress is erased in a very short time. Dusting, for example, or mowing the lawn.

Or testing the rolodex for lost relationships.

Currently I am, one at a time, sending out e-mail inquiries to those I have addresses for, checking to see if the address is still useful. And maybe creating or reviving certain relationships. Or maybe not.

Digital life is not really any less work; it is just slightly different from so-called real life.
