Could it be?

Could it be that I can't finish University in the next month because I didn't deliver a paper that allowed me to deliver my last two papers in September on time? Yes, it could. I'm hopeful it won't because I sent the paper now flying through the Internet, but YES 7 days late!!! I didn't know!! God, I hate bureaucracy...

I was having a carefree day until this fell over me. It's Saint Mary's day today and it's a national holiday in Portugal. This morning I heard a adage that said: what isn't done on Saint Mary's day, can be done another day. And I thought: that's just the perfect advice for a holiday and also for a lazy woman like me ;) So, I didn't do much but put my video tapes in order. I watch Alistair McGowan - for me the best comic to make impressions - he's brilliant. And I laughed and then...I worried about university. I hope the staff at the faculty have heard of that adage and they'll let me get away with it.

I hate when things like this happen and end up spoiling an otherwise perfectly good day;

Cathy and Sophie: Good news in a rainy grey day...they let me off the 20€ fee and I'm off the hook ;)

Yay - I'm glad it worked out!

Surely, they must! I know there's a lot of red tape in Portugal, but they'll have to give you the benefit of the doubt! If not, I may come to haunt them ;)

I am so glad it worked out for you because I was reading your post and I was getting really nervous for you. I hate deadlines.

Take care,
Connie

Completely off topic, but - could you please translate for me this cartoon? It's my Norwegian friend's blog, but it's his Portuguese boyfriend's cartoon, and although he's explained the content, I don't understand all the words... Please, pretty please, with sugar on the top?
(Just a quick e-mail or something, at your leisure, will do nicely..)

Scholiast: Done! My pleasure :)
