Monday...

Well the presentation is over and done with - went OK, although I managed to talk for 10 minutes instead of the recommended 5!  Guess I was trying too hard not to be a 2 minute wonder  :-)  It went OK anyway - the bar has been set at just above knee-height!

The weekend passed in the blink of an eye - birthday dinner out for the youngest (pizza), laying semi-comatose in front of the TV in the evening, cooking more pizza for dinner on Sunday (can't have too much pizza it would seem), watching Land of the Dead (a rather good zombie movie) while munching popcorn and an early night!  Oh, I slipped in a bit of work on my presentation somewhere - not sure where but it did happen...

Well that is about it for now.  More soon - I have found one of the first memes I ever did and thought it would be fun to revisit it to see how my answers have changed...

I'm sure the the presentation was better than "OK"....and I tend to do the same thing, talk too much, instead of too little! Hmmmm, teachers!?!

Another teacher, here....I never know when to shut up. Your presentation was probably great! And, everyone else must now squirm waiting for their turn while you got it all over with! May I ask what class you're taking and what your course of study is?

The build-up is always far worse than the actual task - I'm sure you slayed them (um, not literally)! Sounds like you had a good r&r type of weekend, charging the batteries.

Congrats on the presentation. Glad to have it over and done with and now you can sit back and enjoy everyone else's turn. Any presentation you can walk away from with everything intact, is a good one.

Land of the Dead, eh? That's one of the few zombie movie I haven't seen, yet. Right now I have been watching the newest TV series "The Walking Dead". First season wasn't too bad.

Ms K - It just seems to come naturally to some people, and they make great teachers.

Ninny - I am belatedly doing my BSc in Geography - final year, just have one taught module (Applied Physical Geography) and the dissertaion to do which is about shifts in US industry.

Shrinky - Yes, it is best if the audience survives!

Agg79 - We are waiting for Season 2 of Walking Dead to start here - 10 days to go! Land of the Dead is a newish Romero movie. We enjoyed it.

Oh that's right, you volunteered to be first. Glad it is all over for you and now you can critique the ones to follow you.

Glad to hear the presentation went well. Better too much than not enough!

You're right. You can never have too much pizza...as long as it's GOOD pizza.
