. . . and if you'll pardon the vernacular, I don't know whether to crap or wind my watch.
I went through my talk again; last night it took 25 minutes, this morning it took 20'36". Which is good.
But, then, the boss came and asked me (and another student in the lab) to help him write a book chapter.
(for the uninitiated, that's a "really good thing" to have on your record)
Problem is, it's due in 2 weeks. But, of course, I agreed to it, because it's good to put on the resumé.
Oh, does the madness ever end???
