The Deadline Rider

Uch. I have four radio spots that need writing - in fact, I have to get them emailed by 3 AM this morning, and it's almost 11 PM now. And I got crap.

Really, I've never ridden deadlines quite like I have in this week. I blame the weather.

Anyway, made some slight progress on the house today - after a week of dithering, I went through the list of quotes I got from gutter repair places, and made the call to the one that I felt the best about. So, Monday: all new gutters! It's not quite like I'm doing it myself, of course, but when you think that the whole reason I was busting my ass doing all that freelance work over the last seven months was to have money to pay people to do some serious repair work, I think I can take the credit. And I think I've proven pretty demonstrably that I can't install gutters and should really not waste my time (and money, of course) doing it again.

Of course, all that work has left me pretty blown out. A weird thing to leave a job and find yourself pretty much as larded up with work as before. I've been out of KPMG for roughly a month, and I still feel like I haven't been able to take it easy.

Screw it. I'm just going to write some crappy spots and see how it goes. Dross for swine, and all that.
