We're a Strange Lot

Every once in a while, items like this come along and help you to feel a bit less strange. Toiling away in isolation, as philosophers so often do, I sometimes wonder whether my experience tracks that of others working in the field. I find writing to be brutally difficult and bound up with some ritualistic behavior: the right environment, the right beverage, the right lighting, the right music, etc. It's good to know that at least some other philosophers work similarly.

For the record, I've definitely done a fair amount of writing in my pajamas but have never (as far as I can remember) written sans pants.
