We weathered it mostly fine.
(I managed to avoid gloating over a particular mistake I've made in the past being made this time by the very person who'd really gotten on my case for making it. I know that the temp never gets to gloat. Openly.)
I treated myself to a late lunch -- the job in question was a complicated proofing/correcting job that took over two hours in the middle of the day, from about 10:30 to just before 1 -- and let me tell you, that Taco Bell bacon and cheesy potato burrito with a lemon-lime soft drink was especially satisfying.
The pace at the office became MUCH more manageable after that, and will stay relatively manageable for a while. And I think I've been through a trial by fire that helped me burn some bad habits out of myself.
