On Tuesday night, I had to do a group presentation in class. I was *ever* so slightly underprepared for it, and instead of my usual print out of exactly what I was going to say, I had scribbled bullet points.
Things that happened during the presentation:
- I lost track of which order we were presenting in, and was all "Uh, you're next" to the person beside me, only to find that *I* was next.
- I couldn't read my own handwriting.
- I couldn't think of the word I wanted. This led to me trying to say "If you don't use a controlled vocabulary, keywords can be subjective", and instead came up with "If you don't use a controlled vocabulary, keywords can be..........................................not...good???... I had a word, but then it went away..."
- I completely forgot what one of my major points was, and had to stand there squinting at my own handwriting and having an internal panic attack until I found it.
So that was fun...
Then on Thursday, the doorbell rang:
Random stranger: Yeah, hi. I'm [insert name here] from the Victoria Police *shows ID*. Is [my dad] home?
Me: Um. No, I'm sorry, he's not.
Policeman: Damn!! Oh well. It's just about his unpaid parking tickets - there's hundreds of them, so can we just leave them with you?
Policeman: *dies laughing* Hahaha, oh God. I'm just kidding. We've got a court summons for him. He's being called as a witness.
Policeman: So here's the summons. And there's $5 stapled to it.
Me: Um. Can I ask WHY?!?!
Policeman: Honestly? I have no idea. Everyone gets given $5. But it's ridiculous - it won't even cover the cost of a train ticket!!
So that happened. At least now I know why I keep noticing staple marks in $5 notes??
Plus, my Body Combat instructor on Monday night kept yelling "DON'T BLINK!!" at us, and I got paranoid that the terrifying angel statues from the cemetery across the road from the gym had finally made a break for it. (This fear has not been helped by the appearance of a WEEPING CHERUB in the new trailer for season 7. Thanks a lot, Steven Moffat...)
Oh, and then last night? I was playing the Angry Birds board game with Little Miss A last night, and managed to hit myself in the head with an angry bird.
Basically, my reaction to the world this week can be summed up by Prince Harry:
How was everyone else's week?? And for my Whovians, ZOMG HOW GOOD WAS THE NEW TRAILER?!?!?!?!
