Stupid Slipper Face

So, I've been working away at my master's thesis. I've been outlining, writing, and reading for hours on end. I have to admit, it gets to making one feel pretty smart. And it's a necessary feeling in order to give my thoughts and arguments that intellectual weight which keeps them going. But it's sad times when I'm mocked in my brilliance by my slippers.
I always wear my slippers in the house. My feet get too cold just socked. When I read, I like to stretch out my legs and prop my feet up on a little ottoman. When I get a brilliant, earth-and-academy-shattering inspiration, I look up from my book and down at my slippers, where my idea is immediately belittled by Stupid Slipper Face.
I worked up a little drawing in Microsoft Paint to show what I mean (please forgive the wonky technology, but then again, don't knock Paint). On the left is a crude rendition of my slipper. On the right, Stupid Slipper Face:
In conclusion, I'm never going to get this thesis done.

Fantastic. This is how my brain works.

Eight months later, I have a big project due May 1 too. But I don't wear slippers.
