Birthday party concluded

2006-11-26

in Daily updates, Oxford

Kai  and Jessica

My thanks to those who attended the party last night. It was great fun, with lots of good music and conversation. Particular thanks to Alex and Bryony, for correcting my lack of an Oxford academic robe (I had been borrowing Kai’s for high table dinners), Kai for Simpsons magnets and a history of Pitt the Elder, and to Emily for an Albert Einstein action figure. I think I will make him sit atop my stack of thesis books. In the vicinity of Popper and Kuhn, he will look especially appropriate.

Contrary to my fears that the birthday party would be as poorly attended as the Canada Day party, quite a good number of people showed up. That is particularly appreciated, given how busy the end of term is for everyone. Things ended exceptionally late, and in circumstances not comprehensively remembered – generally the marks of a successful student party.

It’s exciting that there are now just three days left before my father will be visiting Oxford, and a just a week before we are leaving for Turkey. Now, to get back to thesis and seminar work.

Thanks again for having us, it was fun to meet some people from your course. And happy birthday again for Tuesday.

Ben,

Thanks for coming. It’s always a particular pleasure to get to discuss UBC’s Afternoon Tea Society, and thanks for letting me know what manner of gown I should get.

Ak! Party concluded!?
Oh dear… I thought it was tonight.

Ah well. Hope it was a good night.

(Incompetently),
Mark

Yesterday indeed. I would definitely not have wanted to wake up for a day of classes, following the party.

Hopefully, we will see one another soon. Are there any good Walking Club trips upcoming?

Just in case you needed more evidence that Denmark is unusual.
