Soul crushing.

Turns out the guy we had tentative plans with did call, and we were able to cancel them, which was good because we got more work done, but bad because it's so hard to say no to people. It did not help that this morning we got a call from a salesman trying to sell us promotional material for our fictitious business. We bought some really neat pens from them one time (one end writes, the other end is a screwdriver with a changeable head!), so they call us whenever they come out with something new to print logos on. One time they called about some really cool LED flashlight keychains, but I had to turn them down then, too.

But today the guy seemed extra persistent! I know it's just his job, but stop making me say no! Aaaaaahhhh!! I feel like I'm crushing dreams left and right, my goodness. (Intellectually I know that's not the case (probably), but emotionally, I can't take it.)

Anyway. As for work today, the level of motivation was palpable. And by that I mean you could physically feel how much we did not want to work today. I think a big part of that is that we're going through another of our "our translations suck but we're too stupid to tell what's wrong with them and so we'll suck for all eternity" phases. It's hard, because I'm pretty sure they don't really suck, but...

Part of the problem is that we've been working with an editor with whom we have Artistic Differences. At least, we're pretty sure they're artistic differences, but it's hard to be sure. Siiiiiiiiigh.

But it's Wednesday today, and that means taking the night off to watch TV! Yay!

Today I'm thankful for Wednesday night TV, being done with work for today, getting some extra work done yesterday, getting to buy more Easter cookie dough yesterday, and finally finding time to listen to our Rapunzel (Labyrinth of Grimm) character concept CD.
