It’s Wednesday!

Wednesday 21st July 2021

Today is my 14th wedding anniversary, and the first one since Corinna died. It’s a weird feeling, and I’m not going to try and analyse it too deeply, but I think that for the first time in my life I understand the meaning of the word “bittersweet“.

Carl arrived last night, and brought me a particularly Gothic present consisting of a walking stick with a taxidermied crow’s head. Just another piece for my ever-expanding cabinet of curiosities. Amongst other things I interviewed mild friend Ken Gerhard yesterday, and finally worked out how to use Zoom properly. Today? I am only too aware that Lady Selene is just around the corner, and that Setebos still dwelleth i’ the cold o’ the moon.

Now, changing the subject massively, my friend and Colleague Louis Rozier is carrying out a survey as part of his dissertation for his Masters in Computer Science. If you are interested in helping him please check it out:
