Oh FFS …  
Today I started work at 9am, ate lunch al desko with the whole team (we had a meeting table picnic) and finished at 11.40pm.

That is all you need to know about:
a. where I have been lately;
b. my mood at this precise moment; and
c. advertising departments who sell massive ad supplements and then fail to deliver any materials in a timely fashion.

Some innocent invited me to the ad sales meeting tomorrow morning. I have a three minute window in my day, so I will spend it walking in, lecturing, and punching anyone who interrupts me. Sure, a lot of them are bigger than me, but I am fuelled by rage, righteousness and an unholy amount of dark chocolate.

See you soon. Miss you all!

Now, when you sweep in, you will scare the bejeezeus out of them and set the correct mood and attention levels. And remember, Unforgivables are still unforgivable, even if you perform them without magic. ;)

Well, at least there's dark chocolate.

Ah, the life of an editor. It's the same way for all of us, even for editors like me who don't have to deal with any advertising. Invariably the press deadlines still arrive much sooner than we're really prepared to handle them.

Oh, ugh. Sounds like work sucks. I hope it gets better soon! *hug* Good luck!

That sounds very stressful! I do hope you'll have more time for other things soon. That is no fun.

I like working for government, for the most part I'm always off at 5:30 pm.

*offers selection of large blunt objects* I know I missed the meeting, but I figure you could always use a weapon for later stupidity.

I'm sorry that work is sucking. Hope things have improved somewhat (or at least provided material for satire and revenge fantasies.)

I would love to have been a fly on the wall at that ad sales meeting yesterday. I hope you cowed them all sufficiently?
