This job thing is killing me. Retail is looking pretty good. Deer In Headlights Syndrome has come to stay. If I were doing this for someone else I'd be full of ideas and action.
It reminds me of my favorite Flannery O'Connor quote, from "The Misfit":
She would of been a good woman if it had been somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life.If someone could move in here and hold a shotgun to me or at least stick me with a pin every time I'm just sitting and staring at the computer, I'd probably get a job in no time.
I guess I'll just postpone the "Consume less caffeine" part of the '08 resolution list since stimulants are my best muse/taskmaster in the absence of a pin-pricking overseer. Come to think of it the bulk of my work for both conferences and the homestay was caffeine-fueled, so I guess I had simply forgot how key its role was... Oh, wait, see above "completely stressed out."
