... I haven't made a journal entry for so long, so I thought I would now. Even though I've not really got anything interesting to say.
What can I say?
Well... I guess I can say that I'm well settled into the routine that's been happening for the last 6 months or so since I started working here in the department of Earth Sciences at Leeds University... it's kind of weird to be here during the week and then in Manchester () at weekends but I'm getting used to having two different "homes" at the moment!
I told you it wouldn't be that interesting. Oh well. Maybe I'll remember to post here when something interesting does happen, you never know.
Only a few weeks until the Summer Party meet! Looking forward to seeing people there again! And maybe demonstrating my great rounders skill (?) again.
An Englishman in Dublin

Ought to have said this earlier... completely passed my mind before now...
I was in Dublin when the Ireland vs. Germany match in the World Cup was taking place. It was such a bizarre experience being so drawn to a team by being in a pub during the match... and not just me, all the people I was with were too... and then the way the match ended - a last-minute equaliser - that was special. I've never seen a replayed goal celebrated so vociferously!! My friends and I became honorarily Irish for a couple of hours, even buying daft Irish memorabilia to celebrate the occasion!
Needless to say, I'm glad we weren't there when they lost on penalties to Spain!
Another day, another interview...

I don't know why, but I like interviews...
I had another reasonably successful one last Tuesday. I was half-asleep during most of the interview day, and yet still got half-offered a possible 3 studentships...
We shall have to see how things develop over the coming months. Maybe something or somewhere else will grab my attention during that time, who knows?

Ah... a time to relax, and see my family for the first time in a while. It makes me think how lucky I am to have them when so many other people either have no family or don't get on with their family at Christmastime. So if any of you are feeling down this Christmas - I do feel for you, and hope that it'll get better for you. Leave me a message or something if you want to talk about it...

Here we go then....
After a month's practising of cheesy guitar solos and chords, it's finally almost time to perform. Godspell (a musical based on St Matthew's Gospel) is taking place right here, right now! Dress rehearsal tonight - performances Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It's gonna be good...
