Take your temperature. I go a bit nuts when I've got a fever.

I've ordered my girlfriends main xmas present to come from New Zealand. Ordered it on the 3rd knowing it would be a bit tight but probably still get it on time. It's now the 8th and the order is still "processing" :x

Movie adverts are just like that too, I can't remember the last time a movie advert actually told me something about the film.

Calling all office monkeys! 'm giving a presentation tomorrow and it needs to be 12 minutes long, just ran through it and it was 17. How do I cut 5 minutes of stuff when I thought I was well not going to have enought to say (that is, it's all pretty relevant stuff)?

Will there be someone there with a stop watch or anything? if not leave it.
You'll find on the day you'll speak faster as your more familiar with the words your saying. You'll probably get some questions too which will make the actual lenght of your presentation less easy to identify.

I imagine on the day it will be about 13/14 mins without questions? I bet unless someone is timing (which is what they did when I was at uni :rolleyes: ) people would not notice the extra minute.

There's a dedicated 6 minutes for questions, which is potentially really awkward if nobody says anything. Also he's the kind of hey-I'm-really-laid-back-it's-you-who's-paying-for-this-so-I-don't-care-LOLJK-I'm-going-to-practically-start-crying-when-nobody-does-the-reading kind of tutor who would be well anal about timing.

I'll just be really harsh with it and cut out as much intro and opening hypothesising as possible and get stuck into what I actually read/did as soon as possible. Hopefully that should work.

I've told you before. Sticking your head in the bog and flushing is not the same as washing your hair.

During my dissatation presentation I got friends to ask questions about bits I didn't have enough time to fully explain in the presentation.

We also got marked on how we answered. If no one asks a question ask them questions to try and invite discussion. I use to start talking about methods again and no doubt someone would have a preference over another method, you then spend a few mins explaining why you used yours over their choice.

Got some new "Oriental" Pillows, However "Oriental" must be a code word for Hard as fuck and makes your neck feel broken when you wake up.

Also, bad dream
