I swear, this "Fable" game is doing wonders for my productivity. My inherent guilt will not allow me to simply slag off work and play--I'm generally pretty concientious about working through the day, which you have to be, if you work at home, because if willpower weakens, it provides a chink wherein the Demons of Slack will poke you savagely, and then you're screwed--so I am working like six kinds of dog to get stuff done, whereupon I can play for an hour, then back to grindstone, get enough done, play for an hour...etc. This makes me realize that I obviously do not work hard enough under normal circumstances, because I have managed to jam a day and a half worth of work into a single morning. I have finished a Digger, laid out a Digger, finished a cover, updated a rough, and gotten about half of another fairly complex painting slapped in. Also, I vacuumed.
See? Video games are good for you!
