    Essay-lag.
    Derived from "jet-lag". The disturbed sleep pattern resulting from late nights & early mornings, or no sleep at all in the days preceeding a project deadline.



    Anyone else care to suggest a new word we could use?

    For some reason, I first read that as easy-lay. I'm sure it's just because I haven't slept in a long time. :blushing:
