I've been quite pleased with my rate of posting the last week or two - smug even. A post nearly every day? Suck it, NaBloPoMo! And then . . . came then.
We took on a new client late last week and they needed some stuff done fast. We promised we could deliver pure internet GOLD (and we are) but it means that we're working into the wee hours and getting up again before the wee hours are fully grown. We haven't cleaned the kitchen since Sunday, the dog keeps making sad, lonely noises and most importantly (and perhaps shockingly), we HAVEN'T HAD TRUFFLES IN DAYS.
That's right - I haven't been holding out on you. We have not had the time to savour our wedding truffles since Sunday.
We're getting a little punchy.
I feel like I'm back in university, studying for finals or finishing an overdue paper, awash with coffee, trying to keep a lid on the heartburn, wondering who's humming that annoying song and then realizing it's ME. Oh, and speaking of songs - have you ever had it happen where you really enjoy listening to a song but the singer is a little muffled or has an accent and so you only catch a few of the lyrics and it's not until you've heard it 12 or 15 times in three days that you look it up online and realize the slightly mournful song you've been enjoying is actually about some poor woman getting terrorized then murdered by a prowler at night? Yeah. Me too.
On the plus side, the stuff we're working on is about Halloween costumes. Fun! And a lot of them look like this:
Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaah!! That's right. Shiver me timbers! I hope I don't get a rash.
