Witness the insane ToDoList I've been working from the last several days (though, actually, my father works these kinds of lists daily, outlined on a blue index card-- in this case, the apple fell far from the tree save for manic outbursts of productivity or this, the biological imperative of a pregnant woman gone happy-mad):
