When I wait until the last minute to get stuff done, my work is sloppy. Just sayin'.

I actually forgot the results were supposed to be yesterday. I'm incensed on general principle for lack of professionalism, but by not paying attention, the wait was a lot easier. Ignorance is bliss and all that.

No matter where you go...there you are.

No, it's either a young woman in a hat or an old crone.  Maybe it was a table lamp or a goblet?

If this was a facebook thread I would be giving this a like. But instead I'll just give you Thumbs Up. Wholeheartedly agree with you Donovan! And the end of my story this year is a testament of this very fact...

LOL Trillian!  What you said. I would add only that ecstasy and gratification delayed is ecstasy and gratification amplified (in most human endeavors I can think of).

Examples:

Overtime Super Bowls --> Hail Mary Pass
Hunger --> Food Tastes Better
Sex --> Climax (or Love or Fidelity, take your pick)
War --> ok that's the exception that proves the rule...

That's when you recognize the delay as an acceptable part of the game/drive/interaction/theater...

(As in theater of war, though there probably is a better term to put there.)

Well one good thing about late results is people like me can keep the delusion going that we are still in a competition.  I'm fully expecting not to make it to the next round.
