Essay proofread and bibliography done.

Now to proofread it four more times, think it's even more shit each time I look at it, and hand it in expecting my worst mark ever ...

But that's the extent of my knowledge of non-alcoholic "booze", since it entered the lexicon, re: a Claytons solution.
Is that the brand of the stuff, or is that a specific U2/Adam reference? Either way, I don't recall hearing about it before...

When I went out to St George, I did see a few wild 'roos.

Hell, when I lived on the fringe of the fuckin' Gold Coast, we had wild 'roos come up to our place! And wallabies, more frequently. Pottaroos, all that stuff. Never saw a wild koala though. Apparently they used to live around the area but had long since left due to the increasing development and human activity.

It's the drink you have when you're not having a drink!

I think it was a matter of no one could tell exactly where it was coming from... probably one of those cupboards that has lots of blinking lights and controls security things for the whole building, which was locked in an office no one could open cos all the resident advisors were on hols or locked in their rooms studying or something.

Or else it was one of the clapped-out old lifts, and the repair guys took forever to show up...

You know, I actually brought this upon myself. My friend's father called me Dr Dre all through high school - actually, he still does; I saw him in December and he greeted me as Dr Dre! I happened to mention this to Khan one day and now look what's happened.

When I get my PhD and really am Dr Axver, I'll never hear the end of Dr Dre!

Leave it for as long as you can before you read it again... it really does help to get some distance from it.

that's how I roll

Take this test for example. I'm feeling confident, so I'm sure I'm going to fail.

THAT!

If you hit that with your car, YOU WON'T FUCKIN' DIE!

Hit a kangaroo and your car is a write-off and odds are you'll be a bit beaten up too!

Actually, that usually does worse for me! I'll come back to it, say "this is absolute shit ... but I don't have time to start again, oh I'm so fucked!"

In exam conditions, I never check over my answers. I just hand it in and that's that. Essays give me too much opportunity to second-guess myself ...

Shouldn't be hard. I expect he remembers woolly mammoths and the last Ice Age, and his parents told him their first-hand accounts of when dinosaurs walked the earth.
