Forgive me LJ for I have sinned...
... it feels like a very long time since my last confession.

Today I have governors meetings so have the excuse of working from home. Actually I'm having to work pretty hard, but this is a moment of diversion. One of my new colleagues said to me the other day "You've fitted in very well. It feels like you've been here forever." - I think it was a compliment. Needless to say my performance review started with "You're doing very well" and then went on to "Like me, you might find you have to be more politic and less direct at times". I smiled, which was probably the best thing to do in the circumstances.

I'm not sure when I last updated, but since then work has been mostly fun and in my spare time I've been mostly exhausted. Of course I missed Whitby, but then I went skiing in Tignes IN MAY. A long weekend (out Thurs, back Monday, Ski 3.5 days) was just what I needed. We even had snow. There are some pictures here. For the first time I dragged an SLR up the mountains and despite falling on it a couple of times the results were good. I was with a guide off piste for a couple of days (though one was cut short with a hospitalisation) and actually felt my skiing was good enough to make it worth it.

Other than that, weekends have been spent quietly contemplating taking over the world. But more of that in 2009/10.

Last night, because I can remember it, I'll talk about Ian McKellen. Everything oxfordgirl said is true. He did seem to be very well endowed. Sylvester McCoy also looked alarmingly like a hobbit which added to the confusing buzz in my head. Oh, it was King Lear in Stratford if you weren't sure what I was on about.

This weekend is secret plans, next weekend is WGT. Hi-ho hi-ho it's off again to the Eurozone I go. Though I'm not sure I should after the travesty of the 2007 ill-fitting trouser competition in Helsinki. Go Moldova!!

Now, to work. Still love you all, etc. Even if I don't reply to your emails in a timely fashion and so on...

Nice to hear from you again! Only this morning I was gazing mournfully at my friends page and coming to realise how much I'd come to rely on it as a source of break time reading by the absence of anything new on it. Like all long waits, I was rewarded by several coming along at once.

Almost makes me wish there was more I could post about to return the favour.

Here's hoping you get more spare time in which to relax (and post, and take/edit more lovely photos, and reply to emails...)! ;-)

Your email is one of those remaining in the "Shit, better answer these at some point" folder...

Just what I said. At one point he casts off his vestments (I forget the actual line) and stands around with it, well, hanging out.

And if he wasn't a proper actor I'm sure he could have made it in pr0n.

But when, and where? I am not acquainted with this oxfordgirl of whom you spake, and thus have no knowledge of the production in question.

At least I am assuming it is a production, and not some sort of a party or other social engagement. I never get invited to those sorts of parties anyway.

King Lear, RSC Stratford.

Is nudity a traditional part of the play?

Or is it one of those where they went "I think I should be nude in this scene, in order to express Lear's vulnerability and humanity, also I have a massive whanger"?

A mix of the two I think.
