I desperately needed to do more work tonight.

I was supposed to get through another 70 pages today (erm, including carryover from yesterday) to be on track for my deadline.

Instead I'm horizontal-vegging in front of the tv. My eyes hurt from staring at Word documents.

Maybe hot chocolate and one more episode of Law & Order will make me feel fit.

Hot chocolate generally always makes things better. Good luck with the work you have left tonight.

ROFL, I guess even people in the Industry are human.

Hot chocolate should definitely help. Law & Order maybe not so much. Do you have an appropriate movie soundtrack you could listen to? That always helps motivate me.

Steena Holmes said...

Make sure you place some marshmallows in your cup!

Kiersten White said...

No no no, you're doing it all wrong. You need less Law and Order and more James McAvoy. I prescribe one viewing of Penelope, STAT.

Lydia Sharp said...

I had to enlist hot chocolate therapy tonight as well. Not sure how but it does help you focus.

Um... my word verification is fatte. I refuse to take that as a subliminal hint that I need to lay off the hot chocolate.

I doubt it as far as TV goes. One more chapter or episode always means a few more.

JenniferWriter said...

Um, I agree with Kiersten White. But chocolate is always a good idea. Always. Good luck!

I vote for adding some Baileys to the hot chocolate! Err, not too much, though, for the sake of the editing work.

Mmmm, hot chocolate. I love those tiny little marshmallows. Mmmm ;)

I'm in the exact same boat, though I need to work on proposals and spreadsheets and power point presentations; definitely would rather be working on editing tonight.

Law & Order and NCIS are my go-to background outlets while I'm working. That, and lots and lots of tea; drinking hot chocolate will just put me back in snooze mode.

Good luck!

Love Law & Order and Criminal Minds - you'd think I'd get enough of it at work all day - yeah, guess where I work... ?

But tonight I was watching more educational t.v.: Ghost Hunters :)

Ha!

Your eyes may just hurt more. But destressing is a very good idea. And hot chocolate. Officially jealous.

Claire Dawn said...

Hot chocolate for the win!!!

Although I can't see how tv will help your aching eyes, though...

Jon Sprunk said...

No shame in taking a break to recharge the batteries. And rum helps... a lot.

Jane Holland said...

But doesn't it make you feel so gooood when you get through another batch of Word docs, like doing another 25 minutes on the stairmaster or forcing yourself to have a second helping of carrot soup?

OK, maybe not.

Dear Moonie,

Meghan Ward said...

I hear ya. I spent every night this week watching figure skating instead of writing. And I ate plenty of chocolate, too.
