What have you finished, what do you have left, and how much time do you have?

I'm working on an expos paper right now. I still have two finals. [And how much time do you have left?] This [paper] is due tomorrow, but I've been working on it for four or five days. [Gestures to two foot high stack of books.] I tend to overdo checking out books. Obviously. I haven't read all of these, I promise.

What did you eat last?

Lunch. So, 3 p.m. or 4 p.m.

When did you shower last?

Uh, yesterday.

How many consecutive hours have you been awake? How many hours have you been in this spot?

I've been here since 4 p.m. I've been awake for...probably two days?

Coffee. I'm a big coffee drinker.
