Screw the Halloween party! All I want to do is stay home and get stuff done before the Midnight deadline.
Midnight = all the stuff I should be doing must be done because at midnight I can start my novelling extravaganza!
Sadly there's 18 papers to be graded between now (6pm) and midnight if that's to happen. And there's a write up I'm supposed to do as well ... hmm. And the kitten is begging (clawing) for attention.
Working at home with a kitten is a little like working at home with a baby. I find myself only able to concentrate when she's sleeping. It's like 'oh good, she's down for a nap! what can I get done?'
She's awake now so it's off to the Panera to grade ... and load up on caffeine.
