I'm sure my obsession with vintage-izing everything will pass at some point. Just not while it's helping me to stick to this project.
After miss_s_b posted hers, I had a look through the last five years' of entries made on or as near as possible to 15 May. I found it made for a fairly typical cross-section of my favourite journalling topics.
On 12 May 2007, I stood in the library of the Royal Geological Society after several glasses of wine and, er, shouted a random sweary thing. (This was a very confusing time in my life in many ways.)
On 15 May 2008, I recorded spectrograms of my voice while looking for a simple way for my first-year physics project students to record signals from their VLF receiver.
On 15 May 2009, I went to a whisky tasting at the Whisky Exchange with imyril and her boy. I went home clutching a bottle of 18 year old Hakushu.
On 16 May 2010, I was in Noordwijk, Holland, attending a science conference about the nascent NASA/ESA mission to Jupiter.
On 15 May 2011, I wrapped up my participation in the 3W4DW (Three Weeks for Dreamwidth) festival, which didn't really take off this year outside fandom, sadly. Especially since it was the way I met a lot of my non-fandom Circle.
