THEY WERE A LIFETIME TOGETHER
So can’t play right now. See you all a bit later.
Ah yes, “deadlines”.
AKA “the reason I’m merging a Subversion code repository branch at home (for work) at ten minutes to midnight, and I just got home from work”
Right, because there’s Photoshopping to do!
Deadlines are important, so have fun with that.
Speaking of deadlines, my wife got me a Nook for Father’s Day and, for a while, the pack-rat-wanna-collect-actual-books side of my brain wrestled with the ooooooooh-new-shiny-gadget side. My first eBook purchase was “Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded” because I just started reading this blog a few months ago and the sheer size of the archive confuses and frightens me. Also, in recent weeks I tore through the Old Man’s War series and Sheep and loved them, so count me as a new fan.
What does that have to do with deadlines? Well, with a paper due *today* that was only half-written *yesterday*, I of course spent most of last night reading YHMWBG instead of finishing it.
So, I finally buckled down and was up until 2:00a.m. writing about -ugh- *marketing*. Oh, well, sleep is for the weak. I will say that my marketing paper was probably 50% snarkier than it would have been had I not be immersed in Scalzi Sytle for the hours before finishing it. My professor does has a sense of humor, so I suspect it will help my grade, so thanks for that.
Also, the nook is comfortable to read, the screen is terrific and I think I’m already converted. I guess the shiny-gadget side won.
So this means you’ll be posting another photo of bacon taped to your cat sometime later today, right?
First, weekends off, now deadlines??
Hmmm…you know, George Orwell is managing to post to his blog despite the threat of immanent German invasion and you are abandoning us over a silly little “deadline”?
Did everyone see todays Doonsbury? It’s a good one. Four plus decades and he’s still got it.
Wow! A deadline and 8 hours later no Photoshop or other goofery from our great Scalzicce! So focused! Dedicated!
well as I always say… if it wasn’t for procrastination I would have nothing to look forward to!! I do not enjoy deadlines but always find my self staring them down… they always win.
Can John come out and play?
So I picked up your writing book from my local branch of the Dayton public library today, and right inside is what appears to be either a signature or someone with a pen had a seizure. But there’s a little note that says “gift of author” on the blank page just before it, so I’m guessing signature.
This is very cool of you to do. I am tempted to forget to return this now but I will contain myself.
Let me know when you have a headline.
