[the weather today is |life == good]

  1. I will be in Oxford on Wednesday, 23 May, for a fascinating Matlab conference. I'm free in the evening if any persons should be interested in having dinner or drinks. What you're not seeing right now because this is the internets is me peering meerkat-like in your direction, foreverdirt.

  2. I will be attending an Exciting Cricket Match on Friday, 6 July, for the first time at the Oval Cricket Grounds. Does anyone know if it's permissible to bring your own chesterfield sofa?

  3. I saw my cousin for the first time in over a year. She and her husband are currently working on The Golden Compass. Last year, she spent a month in the Caribbean helping a friend shoot a documentary about a reunion of women volunteers (the Waves) in the US Navy during WWII. My cousin rocks.

  4. I just had my six-month review. I'm officially no longer on probation. The lab is stuck with me. Muahaha.

*squeaks excitedly* By a stunning coincidence, I too will be in Oxford on Wednesday 23 May for a fascinating day of algebraic topology revision. I would love to see you that evening, and currently have a totally flexible day -- let me know what your schedule looks like.

As it turns out, the bloody thing is at Milton Common which is some distance from Oxford proper. However, I will definitely be finished by 5 PM and will return to town, presumably by 6 PM. My train leaves at half nine which means I've got about three hours to play with!

I've asked the cousin, just waiting to hear back. Sorry it took me a bit, it's been a hectic week.

Heard back from M!

The documentary is unreleased. It was produced as part of this woman's Ph.D. thesis. She's hoping to find a distributor when she's finished.

I'm told that it's permissable for a cricket bowler to aim at and hit the batter. I'd like to see a game like that in person at least once.
