Hooray for mindless tv and organization research!

Earlier this week we actually managed to complete a research paper (and with 'complete', I mean it was submitted for the first time, so will probably take another say, 2-3 years, until it is really complete let alone published, but I'll save the in(s)ane process of academic publishing for another time, perhaps!!). Anyway. During a work-related conversation about the creative, I-want-to-pull-out-my-hair frustratingly process of writing the dang paper, my office mate admitted to having watched The (fairly lame yet mesmerizing) 'Ultimate Dance Battle' (TUDB), and she likened our academic process to that of the choreographers in the show. I too begrudgingly admitted to watching the show (it is a show), but worse: I had had the exact same thoughts.
