Housewarming party


in Daily updates, Oxford

Dancing in our kitchen

The housewarming party was a great success. The timing was good, the attendance was good, and the environment was good. At least half the program showed up, and probably a rather higher fraction. Food and drink were consumed; the completion of the QT was celebrated; and people interacted with one another in a way well outside the academic. In particular, it was interesting to meet the significant others of a number of fellow members of the program: Iason, Emily, and Tarun – for instance.

I am sure the gathering could have been a fine sociological opportunity, but I was far too entangled to reach any judgment. I just hope that people enjoyed themselves.

PS. There’s something about playing a Melissa Ferrick song in the UK and having it recognized that is profoundly cool. In the end, it is the unexpected that propels us forward in the social universe.

Sounds like a helluva party. Cool.

As a matter of blog policy, the above photo is included only because nobody can actually be identified. I don’t know for sure who’s in it. Even so, if it’s you and you want it gone, I can put up a less interesting one from the party.
