I work until 1:30 in the morning, and the Thursday and Friday before the deadline, I stayed up until 4:30 after work writing, then went back into work at 3. I finished my piece at work on an early lunch break and turned it in then.
I was pretty much useless until I got that done. LOL
Nothing inspires creativity like the chance to fall flat on ones face.

Is this a writer penning an admission of needing sleep?

If I knuckle down and focus I might get the one fifteen minute job I gave myself for today done before I leave in half an hour or so.

Writing an annual review.  I seriously have to try not to get purple when I write those...it's just SO tempting...

Your performance over the last year was dark and stormy, filled with brilliant successes, but counterpointed with failures that drug you into the deepest pits of organizational despair...

Considering it would be quite something for any one one company, or any one on branch of one company, to have more than one or two people entered on average, I'd say it would be pretty hard to even notice.

Less than is lost to football games.  By quite a bit.
