Anyone fancy a bit of input for one of my essays?

It's that time again. The time when it's nearly 10 O'Clock, and I have another 2500 words to write before morning, as well as a 9am exam, and I am hideously unprepared.

So, 1500 words down, 2500 words to go on "A comparison of the roles played and effectiveness of emergency services' response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, USA, with the 1953 Storm Surge in the UK"

Why oh why did i choose emergency services? Why didn't I choose effectiveness of flood defences?

Is it really fair to compare such things so many years apart? Communications etc have improved a little since then!!!

Having said that in the 1800s there used to be 7 posts a day in London and the mail was FAR more reliable!!!

Ok, thanks. I have to be quite careful with things like that, so I'll wrap it up with "Good or Bad Governance"

Funnily enough, I'm listening to Virgin Radio, and they just mentioned Katrina

That's half the point - I can show that the abilities and planning from the emergency services have improved.

Interested that you highlighted communication - a crucial factor for this sort of thing, probably in fact the most vital.

You have no idea how much I'd like to do that! I'm doing the next best thing, bunking off and spending some time on a boating forum!

Time to open the single malt methinks..

Benevolent friends is all I can say! 2 bottles are raffle prizes, the other 3 were all crimbo presents. I am partial to a sniff of 10 year old Isle of Jura, and having demolished the Laphroig last essay, the Jura is now taking one for the team!

2600 words down...

Single Malt?

Single Malt...too right!
Just because your a student doesn't mean taste has to go out the window!

In fact, your tempting me to open a bottle of mine when I should be going to bed, in preparation for the 6am alarm....

Never mind - there's always the snooze button!

Go on - you know you want to! I reckon the best thing about single malt is I drink it purely for taste, so whereas with lager I feel obliged to drink at least 8, with single malt I am perfectly happy nursing 1 or 2 all evening. So, I'm drinking responsibly!

There is always the snooze button, but unless I get off my arse and start typing, I'll have to pull an all nighter!
