I think I’ve finished preparing my presentation for ICON. Now I just need to practice it once or twice before Wednesday. The parents are in Brisvegas today. Taking them out for dinner tonight. I’d make Devonshire tea for them, like I did last time they came south, but I’m a tad busy ATM. Ain’t nothin’ Read more about 2003-09-26 02:54:57[…]
From Ben’s blog: Ricky has very, um, kindly put up a video of me digging a hole. It is funnier than it sounds. Trust me. Ricky should be reminded that he will get his when he comes to Canberra. And looking forward to it too!
Assignment 1 marking is finally complete, save for entering the marks into the database. Tonight, I’m trying my hand at cooking aloo gobi (potato and cauliflower curry). Flying blind. Playing it by ear. Smells alright so far! :) We’ll see how it turns out.
Yesterday, I finished reading Stupid White Men. I didn’t enjoy it nearly as much as I thought I would. Michael Moore is great at ranting and raving, and he can often make his point in a humorous fashion. But this book contained very few really funny bits. Lots of cheap jokes, and lots of angst.

Curse these annoying blackouts! We had a couple of half-minute blackouts last night, which means every clock in the house had to be reset twice! Also, my blog was not set up to come back online automatically after a reboot. Hopefully I’ve fixed that now.
Had a not too bad weekend, which I spent with my brother and a couple of my cousins (whom some of you might remember from my 21st birthday bash) in Redcliffe. Hanging out with my cousins means that I’m exposed to hours on end of hard core hip hop, which isn’t such a bad thing Read more about 2003-09-21 09:13:12[…]
Had an appointment with the dentist today. All’s well as far as the old teeth go. Rather alarmingly, I found myself feeling quite relaxed and could easily have fallen asleep during the clean and polish procedure. Don’t people normally have the opposite reaction when visiting the dentist? I’m helping RGW (previously identified as RW) with Read more about 2003-09-19 09:55:52[…]
I added a few more photos to the Fairfield section of my photo collection. There’s an AWOL scrub turkey (we don’t usually get them around my place, even though they are nearing plague proportion at the university), a tapestry of Lustleigh village (where my grandparents used to live), and another tapestry of some other English Read more about 2003-09-19 00:04:45[…]
No Berkeley for me. :( The paper was rejected in the end because the reviewers thought it was too much like a position paper, which is fair enough I suppose. But from reading their comments, I get the distinct feeling they read only the first half of the paper, because all the reviewers mentioned stuff Read more about 2003-09-15 22:08:05[…]
