Random Notes from Academia

I've been reminded, yet again, that I'm not an extrovert. My labmate is raring to go socialize more tonight, now that the conference is over; me, I'd rather shoot myself. (Only if it were somewhere non-vital, though. Toes are good.)

I do have a couple of amusing academic tidbits. First, if anyone's interested in possibly doing a PhD in game research, there's a fully-funded opening in England; information is here. Second, I just discovered Cauda Pavonis, which seems to be a journal of Hermetic Studies. I'm wondering whether subscribing would give me a score in Magic Theory. -g-

Updates on days 2 and 3 of the conference later - but for the record, I filled an entire notebook with thoughts, comments, and ideas for future research. I need a new notebook!!

Yay! I'm glad it has been a profitable (if stressful) weekend for you. Can't wait to hear about it! Also, I am loving Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrel</i>. I was so in the mood for a nice long book, and I rather like Clarke's writing style. (I am not yet of the opinion that we should change "choose" back to "chuse," even though it kinda makes sense and would clear up a lot of the confusion people have with that word.)

1. Speaking of not wanting to socialize (ahem), wanna do lunch or something when you get back? I miss my Jess-bonding time, and I'd love to pick your brain about that Academia thing.
2. My knee hurts. Also, I'm now learning Braille. I think the Hebrew alphabet is next. Muah.
3. Don't shoot your toes off. You'd just have to figure out a way to get up four flights of stairs every day.
4. There is no four.
