Loving too much

Or, OCD is the best diet ever.

Oh, Adobe InDesign, I can't tear myself away from you. I'm starting to feel weak from hunger, but I can't bear to go to lunch until I get that column of text perfectly aligned with the top of that photo. I need to make the photo smaller, and edit out the widows and orphans, but each time I edit a line, it shifts the length of the story, and I have to change the photo size again...

Last week, I was giddy with pleasure, spending 8 straight hours hypnotized by InDesign. Now I'm at the point in the process where I can't believe I'm not done yet. It's not that the honeymoon's over, but rather, it's become clear that this is not just a crush. We're going to be together a long time, me and InDesign.
