Deadline Dilemma: Part I (the question)

I'm meeting my adviser in 1.5 hours to discuss my exit plan and to turn in a portion of my thesis. I haven't taken a shower in several days and I still have to put some (MAJOR) finishing touches on this paper. So do I use the next hour and a half to bathe or finish the paper? In other words, which is more offensive to a professor: an unfinished paper or BO?

I came across your page for what I assume was also your reason for writing it: as another outlet for procrastination. Yep, I have another couple hours left here writing about subprime loans and the crisis in the housing sector of the economy until I drive 3 hours from my home to Baylor. I'm an economics/finance major and even I find it boring. It's the Bataan Death March of economics assignments. I haven't showered since friday evening which was followed by a Rush concert Saturday (a poor use of time in retrospect, but I already had the tickets). Good luck with your research paper, I (kinda) know how you feel.
