Nodding Off

It's been a long time since I've fallen asleep in class, but I did it today.

I went to a presentation from 2 - 3:30 on Adobe Contribute and Captivate. The presenter started off being unclear on whether he had 2 hours or an hour and a half, which was not a good sign. He asked which we preferred to hear about first. I and the majority voted for Captivate, but he went with Contribute anyway. Why these two were grouped together I'll never know. He then went on for an hour and fifteen minutes about Contribute, and I'll never use it. After 40 minutes, I was sleepy. So, I propped myself up, and let myself sleep. Fifteen minutes later I woke up refreshed and ready to hear about Captivate, but he nattered on for another fifteen minute until someone said, "Are you going to have time to cover Captivate?" And then he said, "Oh yes, I'm just wrapping up. Oh. Oh. Well, I'm running out of time. Let me just show you a few other things." And then went on for five more minutes. AAAAAARRRGH! Finally he gave a quick, underprepared look at Captivate, and I'm back to my desk knowing something less than one thing more about Captivate. Oh well. At least the nap was refreshing enough to get me through the last of my day.
