Look I know its ages away and we're so far up our own do-dahs most of the time that life outside PhD, Masters etc doesn't exist .. but my mother's asked me what I want for Christmas (gift) and I have no idea.

Now... i don't expect you to know what i have already.. but i want to be sensible and ask Santa for something that will help me in the final six months of my PhD.. and don't say vodka :p . was there a piece of software, a book or a thingy that helped you ?

what are you lot asking for, if its suitable for public viewing ?

I'm hoping for a new phone (either an iphone or a Samsung Galaxy s - can't decide which - there's some aps for the iphone that relate to my PhD - yes honestly but I think the Galaxy is probably a better phone) and a Pandora bracelet so I cna collect teh charms (my daughter already has one)

I only want one thing for Xmas - my thesis done. It's just a pity that it's like buying your own present, since no-one else can do it for you.

I had a thought of something that I might find useful and wondered if anyone had any advice please.

Software to create graphics, simple graphics like clip art / cartoon style - nothing fancy, a stick man is beyond me artistically.

Anyone know which software is best ?    Adobe, corel draw - so they do this sort of thing or are they all whizzy photo editing etc .

ta, and have a good day.  Chuff

the thing i most want for Christmas is a rest

I started the year grafting to try and get thesis in, finshed thesis a month into my new job with no holiday. Had four days off at easter, a day off for my viva, one day off to go to the cricket, and a week off in August, it's now nearly November and i'm knackered and looking forward to having all that time off to do nothing but sleep, eat and watch old movies

I have thought about a trade with Santa this year.. if he gives me an x box he can have justin bieber as one of his elves.
