  • Mood:

Narrow bandwidth.

I have The Book.
I have The Deadline.
I also have a Spine which seems to wish to inject as much mayhem as it can into my achieving the deadline.

I don't have any spare energy, any spare time, any spare anything. Right now I have to be Mister Focus, or everything will not work out.

If I say I'm busy, it means only that I'm busy. It says nothing else.

If I say I don't have time to do something, it means exactly and simply that. Nothing more, nothing less.

If I say I can spare you fifteen minutes, that's fifteen minutes. Not fifty, not five hours. I have to be as disciplined with you as I do with me.

I hope that's clear? Really, I could do with zero drama right now, so if you've got any way of dropping it on someone else for the moment, that'd be vastly appreciated. It's not that I don't care, it's that I have no spare time to care in. There's a really important difference there.

Over and out.

Edit: just to clarify, this isn't aimed at anyone in particular. It isn't even in response to anything anyone has done or said, so, please, no frantic examining of consciences, because it ain't you, I promise. Just pointing out that I'm going to be pretty damn inaccessible and focussed for a while.
