Doesn't Play Well With Others

Yes, it's true: after leaving the disastrous social event, taking leftover pharmaceuticals, and sleeping a bit, how did I spend my Saturday night? I sat on my porch and pored over teeny-tiny printouts of two different databases to unify almost 200 useful data points (out of almost 4000 spreadsheet entries). Also declined an opportunity to initiate small-talk with a neighbor who I think wants to be my friend. And this morning? I was disappointed to realize that it was still the weekend and that I probably shouldn't go into work to update my dataset (now with over 400 data points!) and summarize my findings. (Too bad this is "assessment" -- not "research" -- and not publishable!)
