Jeebus. We've been asked to implement a new feature. We first met on it yesterday, trying to bang out a basic requirements list. I then burned through the day mocking up a GUI and a really rough effort estimate, for what I thought was to be a discussion.

Today we had a meeting-- called about a half-hour in advance-- to discuss the feedback on the document I created. Turns out that it wasn't that so much as a bit of a redesign from the higher-ups, but also a drop-dead delivery date for EVERYTHING, based partly on the work estimate that I threw down.

Hate, hate, hate that.

Tomorrow right away I have to create a mockup of the new GUI and get it distributed to the associated parties before the follow-up meeting, which has not been scheduled yet but is likely to be early afternoon.

I'm a bit tense, yo.

I could steal a bit of time tonight from the facade and make this work at home then e-mail myself the files. I'll see how it works out.
