We need more pretzels too

Feels like it’s been forever since I last wrote anything vaguely about me. Sorry about that. Think it’s ’cause work is currently consuming my existence right now. Its crunchtime. I’ve worked 30 hours of overtime in the last 11 days. I actually managed to get ahead of schedule!
So of course I made the mistake of opening my big fat mouth, and my manager assigned me two more tasks (to be completed after the codefreeze on December 7th!): (1) fixing a bug that I apparently did not fix earlier, and (2) hardcoding the ability to use barcodes with our application (hardcoding just so we can get the release out the door on time). I really have no idea what this barcode stuff is all about, but thankfully Jeff was assigned to help me out. But, ack. I wasn’t expecting to get anything new at this point. It’s endgame.
All this extra work is tough, don’t get me wrong. But it’s really fun finally getting that thing you’ve been slaving over to work the way you want it to, and all the orange juice, coffee, pop, popcorn, hot chocolate and munchies I could want are free.
Unfortunately we’re currently out of dryroasted peanuts so I’m not sure how much work I’ll be able to finish today.
