Where'd all the work go?

The day started out with a nice little buzz of work. Three jobs due by 2:00 a.m. One of them due 15 minutes after I arrive.

I get started, slap in the ear buds of my iPod and dig in. Work flows along nicely. My fingers are zipping 'round the keyboard, I'm making trip after trip to the job board to pick up more things to do. My lead tosses me a job to break up for the board. I look up and it's 3:00 a.m. The night's going quickly.

But my co-workers and I are too damned efficient. We've now gone through everything to do and there's still a couple of hours left on my shift. There will be a trickle of edits from proofreading, but it'll be a long, slow end of the shift.
