Progress on that to-do list

Remember those huge to-do lists I make all the time? Here's the progress I've made on it.

Astronomy reading finished!
Women's studies reading finished!
DE homework finished! ...Well, except for one problem. But I still have time to think about it.
The Handmaid's Tale, Chapters 1-21. I'm on Chapter 7 now, and I have fourteen chapters to read before Thursday. It goes pretty quickly though.
Astronomy paper (due Thursday)
Read for French (Monday)
Women's studies Advertisement Analysis (due Tuesday)

And... that's it. I've knocked out a good bit over my break. Now it's time to have some fun and start on everything else. Of course, I got a bit, er, distracted by Yoshi's arrival. I'm going to have a lot of fun with it.

Last night in the shower I put my complete wrongness in the head to good use and thought of my 23433 away messages on my main computer. Then those Punnett squares from biology popped into my mind, and I realized that I could put them to good use here. Basically, I could group all those away messages into four situations. (I tried to draw this in Paint, but pinkngreen5286 was right. Drawing in Paint on a laptop is a bad idea.)

1) I am not here, and I do not wish to talk to you.
2) I am not here, and I would like to talk to you.
3) I am here, and I do not wish to talk to you.
4) I am here, and I would like to talk to you.

Clearly #4 wouldn't require an away message; after all, that's what availability is for. But if I just had away messages for the first three saying those, I could clean out my away messages, and I'd be a lot more straightforward. Right?

This is why my brain isn't allowed out past bedtime.
