155.94 days, or 5 months, 5 days 22 hours 37 minutes

Yes, this day started out just fine. Record number of sales in the office since I've been here; double-digit percentages more website traffic than year's most-coveted event (Rodeo), and there isn't even a major event. I feel I should ask for a raise but all they are doing is cursing and screaming and saying "Why is this other site so slow???" They also have perennial excuses as to why they have no orders one day (my fault) and many orders the next (they don't know what *they* did but it was good). In any event, due to both onrushing multi-year deadlines of momentous import *and* this incredibly stressful job, I swear I'm losing my hair at an ever-increasing rate :o

I'll probably edit / append to this later in the day but if not, o well. In order to offset the negativity I am experiencing at the moment, I will seek to ground myself, and all of you, in the Now with this *awesome* comic :-)
