Well Done Ed

How should I know?
None, though there are rather loud sound effects coming from another computer next to me

Ed visited me the weekend just gone. We played some Gradius V (badly) and some other stuff. Sunday morning I was able to impress him by wandering down to the quayside to show off The Sage (which is slowly growing on me as a building—I still think it’s slightly large for its site though) and the wiffly bridge (some photos are available). We wandered along the Newcastle side (where the market failed miserably to capitalise on the rain and try to sell us an umbrella–though someone did offer a towel for the unbelievable price of £5) and up into the middle of Newcastle too.

After all that excitement we both headed off to York, for Ed had his PhD viva on Monday. We travelled on the most crowded train I’ve experienced for quite some time. Eventually we were able to find a little space by the luggage (and why do people feel the need to retrieve their bags at least twenty minutes from York when the train terminates there anyway??). Conveniently engineering works conspired to increase the normal one hour journey time to something more like twice that.

Anyway, Ed of course passed the viva (well, I did proof read his thesis so claim all the credit). Drinks were drunk. Ed ended up with Glyn’s sofa two nights in a row, just because he’s a doctor (oh, wait, so am I!!!! Scary)

On a completely unrelated note, why is Livejournal so bloody hard to navigate around.
