Not only in movies...

Gave a presentation today. Nothing in particular, lots of handwaving around a subject too broad to be fully covered in 30 minutes, so all I could do was to drive a couple of points home, and fill the rest with something mildly entertaining. I hadn't really prepared that well for the presentation, so I was just trying to look and sound convincing and hoped that nobody would see the gaping flaws, and that audience wouldn't fall asleep or escape screaming (I have a theory that if you can keep your presentation somewhere in the middle, you're probably doing okay).

Well, the presentation was over, and I gave a sigh of relief. I returned to my seat, and leaned to a colleague next to me, and whispered: "That was a bit fluffy, wasn't it?"

With the microphone still on my lapel.

Ouch.

A friend of mine is writing her master's thesis and attending the same seminar group. She having a party with her soon-to-be-ex-roommates and switched her mailinfo to say "Lesbokommuuni" when she sent out the invitations. Guess she forgot to change back before sending mail to our seminar group...
