We're talking months, that's for sure. And quite a lot of them. I'm sure I'm going to put in a great performance at the nationals tomorrow!
On a slight tangent, a lot of people like to write the name of the board game Othello with a capital O, but I've always preferred to keep it lower-case, just to avoid confusion. So if you see me wondering when I last played Othello, remind me that I never have - although if anyone's putting on a production and needs a Roderigo, I think I'd be pretty awesome in that part.
