Hair on fire!

There comes a moment in project life when there's just too much to do, not enough time to do it, and all you can think is "Just keep going. It'll be better when it's over." I've hit that wall. All the DST nonsense set me back pretty far on the OMR project. Now I'm playing catch up and I just can't see getting it done well in time, but I'm pouring all my energy into it nonetheless. And then the Email/Calendaring project reared up and said, "Um, our deadline got pushed up, so we need you to do a ton of stuff right now." Aiiiieeeeeee! This is my fourth late night at work in a row, with plans to work late tomorrow and work Sunday. It feels like I'm so far behind that I wouldn't notice if my hair was on fire. I'm just think, "Hmm... what's that smell?" and keep slogging through the work.

I wish I had a word slave right now. I miss my word slave.
