You can always tell when i'm coming up on a deadline. My kitchen gets cleaned, vast amounts of cooking is done, i'll shave, go out drinking with friends and family, spend lots of quality time with the wife, repair minor damage to household appliances, finish long-delayed household projects, paint, read, release a new version of CPhog, befriend the neighbors, scrub the pipes, re-arrange closets, retouch photos, write long detailed rants about what's wrong with these lazy kids today...

In short, i get more done before a deadline than at any other time. But rarely ever actually meet deadlines.
