I met my deadline!

The backstory is, one of our very senior researchers is increasingly old and frail and has been in the hospital for the last three months. Naturally, being the academic type, she used the time to write this book and the corresponding display. She has just returned to work a few hours a day and is there any way I could get it all laid out by the 11th?

I may be a weasel, but I’m not a monster.

I won’t say it was fun chasing a deadline, but it does feel good not to let an old skill fade away.

Nothing would do but a glass of my lucky whisky. Have a good weekend, everyone!

p.s. the big-ass lens flare is because it was out of focus and I was too lazy to get up and retake the photo. I have booze to drink, you know!

Shhhhhhh! No one would have known you didn’t spend a lot of time getting that flare to happen!

I think it’s quite nice.

And well done on the project!

Yaaaay! I’m glad you prevailed over the evil short notice tasks. I can’t help but get angry at tasks with deadlines, my anger drives my motivation to knock out the tasks and get back to drinking lucky whiskey.

I agree that it’s a lovely photo and the flare is a plus! The only thing worthy of criticism is that the glass seems a bit on the small side. (-:

I can only do one whisky lest I wake up the next morning feeling like a field mouse has taken up residence in my mouth.

Ah. We both find ourselves in the same drinking club. I’m down to one and only one now as I’ve gotten older. Upside: liquor store charges are down!

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
