Do you remember that part in the Matrix where Keanue Reeves wakes up in the vat of slime and wires? Yeah, I think the movie's over-rated, too, but that scene described my present state pretty well. I hit 'send' yesterday afternoon and Freelance Project #1 went winging away to the mothership. I pushed my chair back from my desk and stood up for what seemed like the first time in four or five days, turn around and saw myself in the hallway mirror. The real me, with the messy hair and the bitten fingernails, farmer's tan, unshaved legs, dark streaks under eyes, hangdog face of misery. I've got 24 hours to turn myself back into a stripper. Let the games begin!
