I have a huge presentation today at noon, a "Lunch & Learn" during which I will demo our (*ahem!* award-winning) Intranet to the company. The thing has been up and running since December (did I mention we just won an award on it?) and it's pretty much my "baby," but people just aren't really using it like we'd hoped, so this presentation is basically our first major marketing push for this beastie — and hopefully, will decrease the number of "wait, we have an Intranet? Where is it?" comments I hear on a daily basis.
So, last night, I was at work late trying to finish the PPT for the presentation, and I realized there were some screencaptures I needed to do from home. So I went home, did more work, didn't go to Prince Caspian
like I'd hoped, and tried to make it an early night to be well rested for the preso, especially since I still have to add all the new slides I made last night at home. Except of course I couldn't sleep, ended up just lying on the couch for a while, then eventually drifted off into a fitful slumber.
Do you know how in dreams, when you're trying to read something, the words never stay the same? Some people can't read in dreams at all; others (like me) can do it, but you can't go back and re-read it again the same way. I tell invisiblebf
this factoid every chance that I get, and he just sighs and rolls his eyes.
Well, let me tell you, trying to add slides to a PPT during a dream does not work either
. ;) I dreamed about the presentation all night long. It did not work out well between the inability to add the necessary images, PPT constantly shutting down, and various other computer issues. :) The funny thing is, I don't have any kind of phobia about public speaking. I've been looking forward to giving the presentation today! But, my dream brain apparently didn't get the memo.
I then dreamed about the new Indiana Jones movie. Hmm. I hope it doesn't suck.
