Weekend? Where are you?

Yesterday was a day of madness.

I took Monday off this week. Not a biggy because nothing comes in on Monday. I probably would scrounge up work to do. I was really sick two of the four days I did work. I don't remember anything about those days and it seems unlikely that I lived up to my full potential.

We had a ton of extra advertisers. This is more of a big deal.

There are a lot of people out there who believe that just because I have a computer and a degree in graphic design I can take some hacked up photograph, with bad color and coffee stains, and turn it into a professional ad. They're right of course, but it takes time and I didn't have much of that.

There are even more people who don't understand what the word, "deadline" means. People call us up and cry pitiously into the phone about how their sale will be over by the time we publish another issue, it will be too late and all will be lost. These were things to consider two days ago. Before the deadline.

It was 7:00 before I finally got out the door and I expect Monday will be much the same.
There's something to look forward to.
