My head is hurting, my right eye feels like it's going to pop like a mosquito drinking from an expresso addict with high blood pressure, I want to crawl somewhere damp and dark and quiet and I consider never to touch a keyboard again.
-- `/anick, after hacking all night in TPR02 Perl Golf tournament - cited in The golf course looks great, my swing feels good, I like my chances (Part I)
Leaving things to the last minute as usual, like `/anick, I golfed all night to meet the damned game deadline ...
then headed off to work the next morning with zero sleep. Insanity!
When I got home that night, I felt exactly as described by `/anick above!
Though we'd never met in person, `/anick and I had become friendly rivals during these crazy all night golfing duels.
I remember trying to capture the essence of `/anick's quote in twenty characters, to meet the user name length limit.
Sometimes typing the long name is a pest, but it's worth it because I almost never get a false positive when searching for eyepopslikeamosquito!
