The downside of Lifetime Deals (LTD) Addiction

-Go to bed at 10 PM.
-Realize it is the end of the month, monthly credits on Happyscribe, Shortpixel and a few others renew at midnight.
-New foreign currency rules apply in India, so the One (or two) LT deals on Appsumo I was thinking about… maybe I should buy after all.
-10:30 PM: Happyscribe password not working. Crap. Need to re set. Ditto for shortpixel.
No. Wait. For some strange reason, same password has to be entererd twice. Logging in….
10:50 PM: Only 40 minutes transcribed, 200 images converted.
11:45 PM Crap!Appsumo. Almost forgot. Log on, get lost in new offers.
11:55 PM: 20 minutes left to convert in Happyscribe, forget the images. need to complete AS order.
11:58 PM: Audio on Happyscribe set to transcribe. Crap! It is a 22 minute audio. On to audio editor to hack out three minutes, just in case.
11: 59 PM: Off to complete Appsumo order. Damn! Paypal has 2 FA, so more time. Hopefully I will have some time.
00:00 Hrs: Appsumo purchase complete, Happyscri
be has 12 more seconds of conversion time.
Now I can sleep peacefully. Job well done.
