Pizza on Monday, then emperor, atreic, cjwatson, simont, quartz, and I went punting for 45 minutes or so, then we went back to House! where we found beckyc, kaet and sphyg finishing off The Others, and later watched X-Men (I) after timeplease had arrived. I also finished off my first two questions from mhw.
Tuesday. Finished off the questions from mhw and posted them. Went to Games Evening, and had fun playing Lord of the Fries and watching people playing Spacefarers of Catan.
Wednesday. Wednesday small group, and drinks in Churchill bar with Mikie, Janet and Dave (that is the Dave known to readers of angelofthenorth as JDA), although I didn't actually drink with Dave, 'cos I went home and got some sleep instead.
Thursday. Learned that Owen had become redundant :(, and that angelofthenorth and Dave had both got better Tripos results than they expected :), and was ept and mailed the cts about punting and bought mead for the Veizla. Went to the Castle, and then Relativity, and discussed everything from bugs in Mozilla on MacOS X to the physiology of colour vision via psychology. The last frame of today's Phoenix Feathers is very good, IMHO.
Things to do tomorrow: Finish writing riddles/clues for Veizla. Go to MethSoc Garden Party. Leave stuff in Selwyn. Answer gioiaverdi's questions. Do Friday Quiz Round-up. Test lj-prodding software (will happen out of cron)
Having seen X-Men again with gioiaverdi's questions in mind I note a few things:
- The bad guys have more easily applicable powers, but arguably less powerful ones. Except Magneto of course :)
- Storm makes a very good Anthropomorphication of Vengence
- Wolverine has one of the most powerful mutations, if he'd just realise it
- Xavier is a ridiculous optimist.
- The Polgara-lock really makes Rogue's face - she's a lot less 'cute' without it.
