Faster than a speeding red pen! (OR, What a geek!)

Talking about a book that’s a rush job because we got the manuscript so late:

Coworker: “We should get that one pretty soon because the editor was going to send it to the speed proofer.”
Charlie: “I remember that when it was on TV when I was a kid. ‘SPEED PROOFER!'”
Coworker: *giggle*
Charlie: It was on only one season. I don’t know why. I really liked her sidekick, Keyline Guy.

The stress has gotten to me. I’m going around the bend.

(I may have another post next that won’t be any attempt at humor, so I thought I’d share this first.)

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
