Totally done, and not at all

Poster for AGU: finished!
Contract work due Thursday: finished!
Flurry of emails for project meeting: finished!
Extra plots requested at the last minute: finished!

Contributions to strategic plan, theoretically due tomorrow or maybe early the day after: Not even started!
