deadlines feel like standing on the edge of a cliff looking down and i've seen too many cliffs these days. i've got another deadline tomorrow morning so it looks to be a long night for me. all i want to do now is to watch television and go to bed. i don't even remember the last time i had a normal weekend, when i didn't have to work. i feel like i'm drowning in all this coding i have to do. if i can just survive the next few days, i'll have a little bit more breathing room. what's the worst that can happen though? if i miss a deadline? nobody's going to die. i just have to keep my head up, that's all.
i watched the broncos-steelers game today (during work!), bittersweet all the way since neither team were the patriots. the broncos didn't perform at all; last week's victory over new england must've given them a sense of false confidence that they were going to win the superbowl. i know you're supposed to root for the team that beats yours (no shame in losing to champions) but denver totally didn't deserve to win last saturday and the only reason they did was because the patriots committed a few costly uncharacteristic errors. they even played at home and they still lost! steelers is one of a few teams on my football radar only because the pats have played them so many times, there's a long and bloody history between the two teams. i think pittsburg is going to go all the way this year; which is good, because come next season, it'll be fun watching the patriots beat them back down again.
my parents came over for dinner, we ordered some takeout from zoe's. later we tried my homemade tiramisu: if the ladyfingers soaked in heavily-caffeinated espresso won't get you, or the brandy, or the cups of sugar, then perhaps the lumpy clumps of cheese for those that are lactose-intolerant. i think i just might swear off tiramisu: what i made last night was just pure evil. my parents had to take it away because there was no way i was having another slice.
