Horrible Horrible Horrible Puzzle!!!!

                     Journal
Corner problems can be…
                          Devilishly Tricky
Insanely Difficult
           (need I say more?)
One hour to start making moves.
The one hour just to be know
positively where the White King
wanted to make a stand.
Ok, be that way you to be or not to be.
Correct!
Huh!(?) Didn’t expect that!!!!!
the kitchen sink?
Still don’t have an inkling of the way forward.
Two hours in, now.
Correct!
Over 3 hours now.  Damn this one’s hard.
Sac the knight and have a stalemate?
 
Then, following morning, got two Incorrects.
Then tried a path I had looked at the previous day.
Correct!
Correct!
Solved!
 
Huh?
 
Threw it into Analysis, Level 10
Finish against Computer
Constant switch sides, until an outcome.
 
Outcome at, like, 90+ moves.
 
Draw due to insufficient material.
 
I had a draw with a zugzwang at way, way before.
 
Before the analysis, even.
 
Uggggggggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Zugzwang to a Draw (in less than 90+ moves)

Saves a lot of time.

Wrong!!!!

3...Nf4??? (3...Nxg3! - much stronger than that), 4. gxf4 Qh3+, 5. Kg1 Qf3?, 6. Rxd3 exd3, 7. Qc1! Kh3, 8. Qe3 stopping the checkmate and White wins!!!!

I looked at it for so long, I'm not really sure what zugzwang I had gotten.  I also know that the 90+ move equal material came about some way that I couldn't duplicate.

It was just a strange puzzle is all I can say.  I'll give it a few more tries in analysis because I was hoping that one move was a better one than the solve.
