It’s just 12 hours. (Jerz’s Literacy Weblog)
When I told a colleague that I was planning to stay at work until midnight in order to work on an abstract, her eyes bugged out.
“I didn’t come into work until noon today,” I said, “so I’ll only spend 12 hours in the office.”
Her look of pity was very touching.
I submitted that abstract at 17 minutes after midnight, after spending 20 minutes on a new title that I thought I could live with.
Now I’m going home to bed.
