Day jobs, late nights, aquarium fish and burritos

I've been working on creating accordion books the last few nights. These images, taken at the Monterey Bay Aquarium are the ones I have been using:

I started out with five images at first but that left the last image exposed on the outside so I think I will stick with using only four. It's been a lot of trial and error with these, just as it was with the last ATC. One of the strategies I learned while attending grad school was to drink mochas in the evening to push me farther. It works but then I'm worn out the next day, with a slight feeling of queasiness. That's where I am right now after three late, late nights of matting, cutting, experimenting and such. This morning I asked M "Do you ever feel that Fridays are overkill?" He replied "Yeah, they're like the last quarter of the burrito. You ask yourself: Do I really need to eat this part too?"
