Rabbit caught in headlights
Next talk was Peter Daivis. I barely heard a word of the talk. I was so wrapped up in my impending presentation. I was shaking. I was nervous. And suddenly, it was my turn to talk.
Tam has introduced me as being from Brisbane. He knows better. I began my talk by correcting him. And the talk had started. My voice sounded nervous the whole way through to me. Rebecca (who had come to watch to support) thought I sounded nervous half way through. Shane later thought that I sounded nervous when I got to the questions.
The talk went well. I think I said everything I wanted to say and got my points across. My highlight was when, describing the assumed transition between low and high rate behaviour (don't worry about the technical aspect), I said, "In Professors Sridhar and Shaqfeh's plenaries, you saw a range of interesting and complex behaviour which occurs in the transition. I've ignored all of this and assumed a step change." It got a laugh.
My favourite procrastinations
The Head Heeb - Jonathan provides a balanced view on various Israeli and (former) colonial states in less developed regions of the world.
The Bladder - a sports satire site. Well worth a look.
