Itchy feet and fading smiles

It was 2 am before I finished typesetting to the end of question 3, which effectively means I spent five hours last night on the same question. This morning I did the last part of question 4 on the train, then wrote that up in about three hours. I took the test up to Chris's office as soon as it was done - there didn't seem much point holding on to it until the end of the lecture. Something about Chris's surprise when I handed it over suggested that I may have been the first to hand in.

At the end of the lecture Chris did his ten-minutes-of-waffling thing again. I dozed off and saw a vision of my test before me, and realised that I'd assumed throughout question 3 that certain things were nonzero without making any attempt to justify that assumption. But I can't be bothered fixing it now - it's still a good test, and I'll know to do better next time.

If I'm not mistaken, that was the last Chris lecture I'll ever attend.
