Whoomp!

First, you complain there's not enough work to put food on the table, and then whoomp! You're swamped. I'm beginning to deduce this is not an uncommon experience for a freelancer :(

I'm working weekends again and there's another assignment waiting, but luckily it has a more reasonable timetable than the current one: I will actually have more than enough time instead of the usual 'almost enough time' or 'not nearly enough time'. I have yet to encounter 'so little time you're zombified into a true translation machine', but I bet it's coming my way. For a while I thought that '11 000 words in three days' -case was it, but nah. I mean, I actually slept during that weekend, so hardly any real zombification occurred (it's a regular joke of mine that this translation machine runs on coffee and cookies - in the translation company where I worked last summer there was always much distress when we ran out of cookies, and I've never drunk so much coffee as I did while working there; I'm still in withdrawal :p).

And the weather doesn't help much: watching gray and rain and rain and gray from the window behind the PC screen is somewhat demoralizing. But, hey, it's already dark now so I can draw the curtains. Besides, bf is making pizza for dinner - not the ready-made frozen kind, but from scratch. He's actually quite good at it :)
