the life of an academic

This little op-ed piece is awesome. I completely concur. The reason I am attempting to be an academic is because I like the lifestyle. I can sit around all day drinking beer if I want to. Then I have to work all night long, but that's fine with me. I get to decide. Of course some who know me well might insist that I need some more structure in my life. Bah! Structure schmucture.

I also need to read the author's book: Tom Lutz is the author of “Doing Nothing: A History of Loafers, Loungers, Slackers and Bums in America.”

As my favorite poet says: "I lean and loafe at my ease..."

That sounds quite enticing. I'd like to sit around and drink beer all day. Of course I'd have to cover my tracks between my subordinates and superiors. Man, that chick in the parking lot has big hooters. Hmm...Maybe I should get back to work.

Big Daddy,
I know you don't feel that way about slacking. Jesus Christ man. We have a two hour long conversation on the plight of the world and here I find one of the best and brightest drinking whiskey and struming his guitar on the deck chairs of the Titanic. For shame.
