Happy Monday! Really!

Back from a few days offline. Waiting for me are:
  • > 400 e.mails:
    • ~50% Junk
    • ~25% Read & Respond Later
    • ~15% Respond Right Now
    • ~10% Respond Two Days Ago/Where The Hell Are You?
  • A rejection of a story I submitted, nicely phrased with an invitation to resubmit something else more appropriate to the venue
  • A review which calls a recently published story "predictable, unmemorable and unremarkable"
  • More looming deadlines
  • Misbehaving computers
  • Jet lagged brain fog and dehydration headache
It's a good thing today started off really well, including some extra sleep, or I'd find all this pretty depressing.

===== Feel free to comment on this or any other post.


  1. What, you didn't set Out of Office to stave off the "where are you?" messages?

    Damn, it must have been a real hair on fire kind of thing to send you overseas for — what, two days?

  2. I forgot to set that before I left. Was in a bit of a hurry.
