The things that made my week

Well. It wasn't the best of weeks, in some ways - but there were redeeming moments. Hitting out frustrations at the driving range, for example, followed by a drink by the river on an absolutely stunning evening. Friends over for dinner. Amaretto on ice. Dipping my toes in the river in the company of friends. Best friends to be seen tonight and next week. The US through to the next round. And hugs from Dean.

Also, this...Nole from Oh So Beautiful Paper first posted this print from Bespoke Press, and I love it so so much. So much.

...and this: You HAVE to check it out, especially if you are or ever have been a research student. It's called the PhD challenge. Your mission is to get the sentence "I smoke crack rocks" into a peer-reviewed academic publication. Prizes may or may not include
  • 1 Box of Maruchan Ramen Noodle Soup (your choice of flavor)
  • 1 Autographed 8×10 Photograph of Nobel Prize Laureate Paul Krugman (tentative)
  • 1 Pack of Leather Elbow Patches
How fun does that sound? If anyone tries, let me know!
