And they say tube strikes bring misery...

We have a big client coming in today. From overseas. Their flight was already booked, as was their taxi. So sadly there was no loafing at home for me today.

As (a) I had 18 tons of work to do for the client, and (b) I absolutely had to be at the meeting, I decided to bite the bullet and get in early. Really early. As in "I've been here nearly an hour already" early.

This wasn't so hot when the alarm clock went off at 4:45am (probably earlier than the overseas client's) but I have to admit to a certain decadent thrill when I saw that the 5:24 bus from the end of my road was still a *night* bus.

and then you notice that you've got 90% of the day's work done by 9:30, and that you can spend the rest of the day polishing and/or attending to group matters without the stress of knowing you're sacrificing other work's quality.
stress drops away, quality of work goes through the roof.
the early start's a bloody hard habit to give up once you've tried it. (ok, i only do 7:30, not 6:30)

God, it seems like ages since I've dropped by. Just had to check out your search system, I wanted that application by the student at Southampton uni'.

It worked fine, and it's still funny.
