Help Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I'm highly caffeinated (curse you Jamba!), at the restaurant playing office (curse you good money!), and there's not enough stuff going on to keep my ADD at bay (Look at the bunny!).  I keep getting up and wandering around cause I can't focus. ( Look at the bunny!  Look at the bunny!  Look at the bunny!)

And I didn't get NEARLY enough sleep last night.  Oy.
