it's very quiet in the comments - don't be shy!
to encourage the studio audience and make me feel less stuck-alone-in-the-study-bubble i propose another competition. tell me your best study related procrastination story. tell me about the all-nighter you pulled in year ten, the conference presentation you finished while listening to the presenter before you, the HECS exam you took after a couple of tokes. i want to hear about the lesson plans written by torchlight in a tent and the grounds on which you wrangled extensions on your phd thesis. go back in your past as far as you want (aunties, this means you!) and do be anonymous if news of your professional slackness may jeopardise your tenure. go!
the story judged the most amusing, heart wrenching or impressively desperate wins a block of ritner sport chocolate, a packet of instant noodles and a copy of my written up scrawled on tear stained draft. (anon entrants can reveal their identities via. email)
help me through this difficult time!
