From Dusty Scott:
Why does it seem that spinning up for vacation is the most intense thing ever? You have to get a whole pantload of work finished so no one will need you while you are gone, coordinate how and when you are getting there, make extra sure all of the work crap is done, figure out who is going to feed your damn cat, freak out about a tradeshow detail you forgot, finish drawing that portrait, wake up in the middle of the night obsessing about it…

Tuesday at 4 am I came to the conclusion that vacations don't really exist.
