Default but what if your goal is to do cryptograms?

"In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it. "
Robert A. Heinlein

Strangely self referential. Enslaved by cryptograms.

Hence, cultivate only those habits you wish to have master you. [I don't remember who said that, but the phrase certainly stuck in my head!!]

Better to be enslaved by cryptograms, than by trivia.

I thought he was talking about me doing Cryptograms!!

Not to worry, he was talking about me.

Generally I find Heinlein to be an idiot. But in this case I think he's on to something.

Whew, LLapp. What a relief that the rest of us are off the hook here. By the way, lose that hyphen.

As addictions go, cryptograms are probably one of the best. And yes, I agree, the hyphen should go.
