And last, but not least, I would like to thank my evil dwarf hamster Napoleon. You have listened to countless speeches practised before you, you have run over countless drafts (and peed on some), and you taught me that if one meets an obstacle one just has to keep gnawing all the way through.
Thank you for always pretending to consider the offers I practised in front of you and not biting me all that often.
This award is dedicated to you and your tiny little hamster feet. May you rest in peace!
