I thought the only rule was no sympathy?
Are you aware how often you type "Felt naff"?
And "shattered","tired" "heavy".......is your PhD not due this year?

You said the same thing this time last year. Was planning on doing Tim's race this evening but I think it'd be best not to - last year I did that and KT then ended up with a mega-cold (though I blamed that on 2 days in a meeting room).
