2004/10/10 11:26:00 - Happy Returns of the Day
According to the "Birthday Paradox", in any group of at least 23 people there is a 50% likelyhood of two people sharing the same birthday.

My first form-group at Secondary School had, IIRC, actually 23 people in it; and one pair of people who shared a birthday.

One of those people was me; the other was a young woman called Charlotte, although I can't even remember what her surname is. IIRC she eventually left the school to go to the Sixth Form College, and I didn't see her again after that.

But still, despite never having really known her, I wish her a Happy Birthday on this day.

2004/10/10 18:15:00 - Freshers' Flu?
One of the disadvantages with having a birthday at this time of the year is that it vastly increases the likelyhood of being ill near it since, regardless of whether you actually blame the freshers, there often are a number of lurgs going around.

Fortunately this year I got it a couple of days early. Either off </a></b></a>emperor or steph (and I hope they've got the same thing, otherwise I'll be going through it again in a day or so!) and have pretty much recovered now; I think.

The other disadvantage; of course; is that the University is full of squashes and things, and this year I've managed to miss Round, CURS and CUSFS squashes. Oh well....

Oh, and on Saturday we (</a></b></a>claroscuro, </a></b></a>emperor and I) went to the Old Spring pub at </a></b></a>antinomy's insistence, and were startled to discover a </a></b></a>nassus there!

A certain amount of discussion of turning the hair of </a></b></a>senjis to look like that of Red Fraggle ensued.
