I was a few minutes away from submitting a paper last Friday, when I suddenly realized a data table was wrong. A table I had based several analyses on. I got an updated table from my colleague yesterday, and I was going through it, and it's wrong in a completely different way; now I'm confused, and worried.

Another paper I'm resubmitting just has the piddling little stuff for me to clean up. And I hate that.

And the building is shaking again.

And I've asked for the day off tomorrow, so I can get some housework done. So it's effectively Friday afternoon and all I have to do at work is crap.

So I don't want to be here.

//rant off

(If you've read this far, thanks for listening.)

Hey, I'm right there with ya.

I have been running down an error in my data for a table I was supposed to finish last Friday. Several late nights and it wasn't until late last night that I figured out what was going on.

Sometimes not looking at it for a while helps.

Love you, too, quozl. By "here," I thought it was obvious that I meant "work."

That's the mystery of the thumb. You can never be sure quite what it means.

I've had moments like that, too. Usually, that's when I click on CANCEL or DELETE.

There's no CANCEL or DELETE button on your post.
