Heeeeeeelp!

I have to get my thesis to the examiners by Friday at the very latest. It's basically finished, bar fiddly little things. But the fiddly little things are taking me ages. I really wanted to get it to the printers today, and it's not looking realistic. Tomorrow, maybe, but tomorrow is cutting it damn fine to get it printed and conveyed to the appropriate people by Friday.

On top of this, some workmen are rebuilding the doorway of the block of flats where I life. Hence, there is loud drilling and hammering going on just the other side of the wall. It's deeply distracting, and it's causing occasional brief powercuts such that I lose data. Yes, I am saving regularly but at this stage losing even 10 minutes' work repeatedly is adding up.

If you can think of any realistic reason I'm not actually going to fail this degree, please suggest it. (The fact that people like me and offer me hugs and that I'm generally clever are all nice things, but they don't count here.)
Addendum 2pm: The workmen have knocked a hole through my wall. They are terribly apologetic about it, but they would really quite like me to be around today and tomorrow to let them in to fix it. And I need to tidy up the study where all my papers are currently laid out so they can get at the hole. Dot dot dot.
