Troubles from a Jeweler's Bench

I fucked up a platinum setting I was making. Made the taper too narrow for the stones. At least I could melt down and reuse the metal. Second fuck up came from a gent's ring with four rows of twist bezel wire. Now I have to make new wire, twist it, flatten it, and then attach it to the ring. There's two days of work right there.
In the meantime, apartment plans closing in, I've been listening to a lot of Jay-Z and Working for a Nuclear-Free City lately and I now have enough Paxil on hand to choke a monkey. Maybe that'll calm the bastard down. Oh, and We Are Wolves own my mind right now. Must go read more Batman and Blindness.
