  • Since 3 p.m., I have done the following:

    1. Cooked a large meal and did not eat it.
    2. Stared out the window for longer than five minutes at a time.
    3. Checked Cowbird, Twitter, Facebook, a number of times.
    4. Stared at a blank word document.
    5. Gone for a brisk walk around the block.
    6. Visited two agent blogs.
    7. Wrote a sentence in the blank word document. Saved it. Deleted it.
    8. Wondered why I do this every day.

    What am I?
