laziness 1, jon 0

So in the end it was laziness that got the best of me. Although you really can't blame me. Working 40 odd hours a week at Alpine takes its toll. Especially when you are trying start a business on the side and are juggling various pro bono projects at the same time. So when you start talking about the 'M' word with your girlfriend, you know your carefree days are over, and you can forget about writing a CMS.

Being the ornery bastard I am, I wasn't going to give in without a fight. I was set on writing a pimpin' CMS. It was gonna be totally sick. We're talkin' rear spoiler, hibachi, the works. But before I had so much as written one line of code, I had an epiphany. I had seen those MoveableType links on blogs before, but never bothered to find out about it. Then one day I did.

And like that, my mind was made up. You see, I had already reinvented the wheel more times than I cared to remember. And I realized I didn't have the time or incentive to do it again. At least not now. Not when I've got so many more important things in my life. So I swallowed my pride, downloaded MoveableType, got it up and running in twenty minutes, and I haven't looked back.

So yeah, it's only been an hour since then. But who's counting?
