Deadlines, deadlines

[mood] tired
[music] Haruka Kanata – Asian Kung Fu Generation

“At some point, I would like to write a book and other things, but I work best when there is some sort of deadline in my own mind, but not when fifty people or fifty million people are breathing down the back of my neck.”

– Alanis Morissette

Scene 1: Mitch typing; Lorry right beside her printing some documents 

Mitch: Do you know how you can keep your Gogo Taco hot while working?
Lorry (while kicking the uncooperative printer to a pulp): No. How?
Mitch (which taking a bit of her four-hour old Gogo Taco): Put it on top of your monitor. Heats nicely.

Light dims. Rays of sunlight effects. An off-beat drum sounds off. Total fade out after hearing faint echoes of “ANO RAW?!”

Scene 2: Gold joyous because Kyoci the Printer is finally cooperative. Lorry arrives with a pizza on one hand.

Gold: Yey! Kyoci is kind today!
Lorry (doubtful): Really?
Gold (waving aloft a paper): Yeah!

(Cue whirring sounds of Kyoci stopping at midprint.)

Lorry (wistful): You spoke too soon.

Our magazine deadline is nearing. I hope we make it.
