I'm never going to be taken seriously as a scientist, am I. [20070512|10:15]

[the weather today is |WHOOPS]

Today is a special day for two reasons. Firstly, it is the birthday of three of my wonderful LJ and real-life friends: becala, kittenhotep and paintstripper. Happy birthday, beautiful ladies.

Secondly, it is the day I woke up mildly hung over and realized that after attending a lecture at the Royal Astronomical Society and drinking several glasses of wine at the reception full of solemn grey-bearded professorial types, I stood in the imposing and antediluvian library of the Geological Society while holding a map from the 1976 copy of the Middle Devonian and Paleozoic Rock Formations, Great Slave Lake Region and shouted, "Fucking Canadians!"

Has anybody seen my sense of decorum? I think it may have run off with the last vestige of my pride.

Pshaw. Einstein's hair was always mad-looking in photos because he'd just pulled the lampshade off his head. ;)

I'll have to remember that lampshade gimmick. Maybe it will distract people from the ridiculous things coming out of my mouth.

If by Most Excellent you mean Inappropriately Drunk, then yes, yes I am.

LOL, to be a fly on the wall!

So, what exactly have the Canadians done to justify this?

I dunno, I think naming interesting geological formations after the most abhorrent trade practice in history counts as justification for that sort of remark.

Ah, OK I get it. I was trying to read something political into "Middle Devonian and Paleozoic" and couldn't work it out. My brain hadn't got as far as "Great Slave Lake Region". :-/

I saw some decorum stashed behind a number 19 bus near Fortnum & Mason. I would have collected it for you, but I didn't know it was yours...

She was a pain in the ass anyway. I think I'm better off without her.
