    EEEEEERRRRRRGGGGGGGG!!!!!!

    8x10 is up and running, I have film holders, I have film (by the way JandC rocks). I have everything I need except time. God, this is frustrating.

    Hmmmmmm......I'm feeling sick, that's it, I'm sick. Cough Cough. Think the boss would buy it?

    Tell your boss you've got a bad case of 'Large Formaticae Bellowsificus Distendtia' and you have to go 'home' until things get back to normal...could take the rest of the day as these things usually clear up around dusk.

    Good luck

    Murray- I think it's "Cerebrostimulatitis Formaticus Magnans". AKA " 8x10 on the brain".

    I know the feeling. I just acquired a Rollei SL66 and a pair of lenses and I can't get out long enough to make one damned negative. I'm working entirely too many hours these days...

    I know what you mean, Mark. I have time to shoot the 8x10 right now, but no ground glass!
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!

    Mark - just tell your boss that the voices told you to stay home to clean your guns. They almost always accept that excuse without much comment.
