I may have been born an only child, but at Imperial, I've found my big brother.

Physicists separated at birth.

Here, we are drunk at 2:30 PM and I am teaching him how to play cat's cradle with the elastic band from one of our Christmas hats.

It's a game played with a closed loop of (preferably elasticized) string. You wind it around your fingers in various ways and pass it back and forth between one another without letting the string fall off your hands. It's difficult to explain how to do it without visuals.

I think so. They did a good job dividing up the liver, too, as we seem to drink at about the same pace.

Funny! And this sounds realllly girly to my own ears, but that's a really cute shirt you're wearing. Heh.

No, wait. Drunk at 2:30PM?!

Thanks! I love that shirt.

It was the lab Christmas party so we started at 1 PM, you see. I believe we were four bottles of wine in at that point (among 9 people), so maybe it's more like tipsy than drunk.

It is! He's supposed to leave in March, which will make me very sad. Between now and then, though, I believe we will consume many, many pints together, which makes me happy.

When you visit London, we will do that.
