by the way, I've spent the last 36 hours

copyediting a scan of an entire book that's done in size 9 font. My eyes are bugging.

Did I mention it's an art book with 60 pages of notes with soruce quotations in Dutch, German, French, and Norwegian (all of which look the same to me)? Oh, yeah, when the scan was done, it ripped out any kinds of accents, umlauts (sp?), or italics. So I get to tiny tiny write in my little green pen all those tiny instructions for fixing those things.

The thing that makes me feel the worst--whatever I don't finish today, Jesse's coming in on Sunday to finish. That kid is going to kill himself.

Happy Monday! Are things looking up "over" there?
