The layout for the catalogue I'm working on is now 2/3 finished. That doesn't include changes, French translation or pricing, but I have managed to meet today's deadline and that's all I care about right now. Day after day of tedious layout is clearly starting to take its toll, however.

Years ago, when I first started working at Asperjay, the senior designer Dave asked me if I'd ever tried to "undo" real life. He said that when he went home and made a mistake, broke a dish, whatever, he'd find himself reaching for Apple-Z. I laughed politely, dismissed it as a stupid joke, and moved on.

Seven years have passed. Not only do I frequently reach for an invisible Apple-Z in real life, but last night I actually tried to fix the tabs on a fucking church choir procession. Christmas thingamy, go to it every year. From the balcony, watching the choir process up the aisle two by two holding their little candles, I spotted a pair that was slightly out of step with the others. The fingers on my left hand instinctively reached for Ctrl-Shift-T.

Sad, isn't it. This morning I start in on that final 1/3, with the deadline a week today.
