A minor miracle occured today in CCST. I may have mentioned the 1500-word essay that is due next Monday.

Anyway, this afternoon's lecture went as following:

Richard the lecturer: *prattling on about conversation analysis*

Voice from ceiling: Testing, 1,2,3. This is a practice fire alarm. Please disregard all lights and sounds.

Well, I'd like to say Richard disregarded that, but considering that blaring sirens and flashing lights are pretty difficult to ignore at the best of times, all lecturing was paused.

When it quietened down, Richard said the following:

Richard: I'd let you all off early, but I think some of the stuff I'm saying here will be helpful for your assignments....

Students: *mumble mumble*

Student 1: How about you give us an extension?

Students: *murmur of assent*

Richard: *makes excuses for a while* ....Alright, who wants an extension on their assignment by one week?

All students: YES!

Not only did we get a one week extension, but we got to leave early. I feel bad for Richard, but I'm sure that I was going to be screwed transcribing five minutes of talkback radio as well as writing a 1500 word essay. Hallelujah!

On a more sour note, Maryke has passed on her cold to both me and mum. Not cool. >.
