Devils put last weeks performance behind them with comprehensive 5-0 victory over Braehead. Here Mark Louis and Doty scrap.
Got the new National album (on white vinyl!) finally.
Chap was setting up a picnic in the park with this portable pizza oven fashioned like a dragon today. I think he was a caterer doing it for a company outing – they were lucky with the weather.
Was up to Oxford today for a session on the Doctoral Training Partnership (I have a student as part of it). I don’t go to Oxford often but when I do I think it’s lovely but looking st the shops and buildings it’s as unlike most British cities as, say, Paris or Beijing. It’s often presented as a model of Britishness but it’s a very peculiar type of Britishness – I’m glad it exists though
In the OU library there is a white board that asks what 3 things would you want if stranded
Went into town tonight for drinks at The Little Bar. Nice range of beers
Devils were awful away last night, but we dismissed it as a cup game. Tonight they were worse. Not sure if it’s some things that can be sorted or more fundamental yet.
I have a dwarf apple tree that produces small but tasty apples. Not sure what to do with them all though
Daughter and I spent our Friday evening debating which is the best Public Enemy album. I say it’s Nation of Millions, she says Fear of Black Planet. Both are excellent of course. But I’m right.
Not a very exciting photo admittedly, but this is the receipt for my MA Art History thesis which I submitted today. I’ll be honest, it’s not the best thesis in the world, but I’m hoping it’s enough to pass.
