Publication by a microwave minute kills Kerri Williams

Urban dictionary definition of a Microwave minute:

Microwave minute

July 1, 2010 Urban Word of the Day
When time slows down while waiting for you food to heat in the microwave. Known side effects are increased hunger, slowing of all the clocks in your house and walking around aimlessly trying to kill time. The microwave minute has the ability to slow time turning one minute into what feels lime an hour.
Kus(9:00 pm): dude when are you gunna get here??
Ryan(9:00 pm): I'll be there in a microwave minute.

Kus(9:00 pm): aight g. Ill see you at 10:00!

Oh how true is this. Although I must say that when i decided to go indie with The Moore Justice Trilogy I couldn't believe how fast and in control it felt opposed to the traditional path I took with my previous novels.
Nevertheless, now as I not only wait for approval over my print version to come through (which I might add was the most frustrating hours of my life, no thanks to text that can not be embedded into create a space books and formatting. Grrr) Back to it- but I am also tapping my foot waiting for the second novel in the trilogy to come about. 
Who thought six weeks would feel like forever. NOT. ME
So I keep checking my email for the illusive go ahead on my print version and checking my counter above for release day of Heart For Justice and I swear it is getting longer. I can almost build a god-damn house in this time. Okay, maybe not ME, but I could direct someone. I could have written another book (albeit a novella) I could have gone around the damn world.  
Freakin microwave minute x six weeks feels like pregnancy for a bloody elephant.
Now Dr, Carl has an explanation for the microwave minute and apparently it's all in our heads, but I'm telling you right now, time has slowed down.
I'm going nuts waiting!

What else can I do in a microwave minute?
