A well deserved self-centred diary post.
Quite a week, all in all.
On Thursday, I get my first paper accepted - I think, I can never quite read between those narrow lines.
On Friday, I submit my thesis, within mere hours of a deadline I discovered only weeks ago.
This much, you know.
Five hours ago, I had an interview for a 3-year research post that I CRAVED. It was a three-day process preparing.
One hour ago, I got the job.
Fifty-nine minutes ago, I was informed that the job could start pretty much when I want, i.e., take a bloody holiday.
Fifity-eight to fifteen minutes ago I drank booze.
Four minutes ago I decided I am geek enough to blog my successes, drunk.

Me on the internets.
I've been checking out The Sharpener recently, a decent UK group blog about politics and whatnot. I'm enjoying an abortion debate that is still going strong 250(!)-odd comments later. It gets a bit messy and pointless in the middle, but picks up, more or less, from about my post time-stamped (those who know my thesis know how reluctant I am to utter those words) August 31, 2005 @ 8:06 pm. But then, I would say that, wouldn't I? I'm having fun trying to winnow out a coherent atheistic position on embryos being equivalent to people. Not much luck so far. Join in if bored (and polite; otherwise the whole thing becomes pointless).
Other than that?
