Weeknote, 27/11

A beard. I knitted a Merlin beard for the students to use at the cultural performance on Friday night.

I also started my first ever pair of socks. Admittedly, I actually started knitting my first socks roughly this time last year, but since I never finished them, I don't think they count. I thought that pattern was far too dull for this beautiful sock yarn.

Going to:
Malaysia! And many places herein. See individual blog posts for more.
I'm not sure what will happen with this trip next year. If I agree to run it again, I am tied to my job for another year. Also there will be a new principal here and he will need to invite us, which he might not want to. But I'm worried that if I don't run it, it will not be as good. It's that "If I don't do it, no-one will" syndrome.

Mostly rice, and chicken, and vegetables. Also lots of coconut. Malaysians like coconut. And cake. And Milo.

About Berlusconi and the impact his premiership has had on women's rights in Italy. Some truly disturbing statistics in there.

Obsessed with:
Scheduling blog posts! Without 3G or reliable wireless, I have found it difficult to fit in blogging this week, which has led to a lot of scheduling (I am secretly writing this on Wednesday, though doubtless bits of it will change before you read the whole thing). I think I may have to skip Sunday, but I expect to be able to achieve my InternaBloPoMo goal to a greater degree than I did in 2009.

Entertained by:
Funny students. The D'Vali celebrations here at the College, which took place on Wednesday night. The outstanding cultural performance at the college feast on Friday night. And Inception, the film I picked for the plane.

Hot, but quite chilled out, in spite of this being quite a stressful experience. Actually, the students have made it a pleasure, and the ease of holding it in a remote college from which they cannot "escape" takes a lot more of the headache out of it.
