Glutton for punishment

So as we've discussed, there is a mountain of work at my actual job, and another mountain at home in figuring out whether I can quit. Plus there's that freelance assignment that's due Tuesday... which is why this online class I decided to take is feeling the most moronic of decisions. The lecture was posted last night, and the homework -- homework! -- is due by tomorrow at noon. Why they did not allow some weekend time for the assignment, in a class aimed at working editors, I will never know.

So if you'll excuse me, I must toddle off and think up two story ideas for Esquire magazine, as well as an entire theme issue for Time. Argh.

PS: Sorry, Sox fans -- not such a great night for you, eh?
