From my e-mails:
It’s definitely starting to feel very painful. I met up with a friend in the venture business tonight, and he was complaining (very mildly) that it’s just not fun anymore. I responded that most jobs aren’t fun these days, and it’s not because our jobs changed.
My job is the opposite of fun.
My job is where fun goes to die.
My job actively seeks out and exterminates fun.
