Pause from climate blogging

Emily Horn and Andrea Simms-KArp

Apologies, but I didn’t find any time yesterday to write a substantive blog post.

I was busy with seeing Barack Obama (photons bounced off him and hit my retinas), buying ingredients, cooking the most elaborate dinner I have ever made, eating it, enjoying wine, taking many photos, and so on.

Ottawa is not always boring.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. Congrats on seeing Obama. He does seem to be the man of the day.

    Unfortunate that, in retrospect, there seems to be a chance we’ll see his economic policies with the same kind of respect we give Hoover’s belt-tightening response to the early depression.

  2. Seems to me that enjoying life is the best possible excuse for not blogging, but perhaps I’m just failing to adjust sufficiently to the internet age ;-)

    Was Obama ultra-shiny? Or just ordinary-people shiny?

  3. He was behind-several-inches-of-uberglass shiny.

    He was in the second limo of the convoy, in the right rear seat, looking unambiguously like himself.

  4. Obama did create quite a stir.

    I am reminded of the opposite effect. One day in early 1980’s I was walking the streets of Ottawa when Joe Clark a few years after he was Prime Minisster walked on the sidewalk in the opposite direction. When passing him I thought that face looks familiar. Only several minutes later did it register that he was Joe Who.

    Congrats on having an interesting day and for taking a quick well-deserved break from your blog. One of the reasons I keep coming back to it is that the regularity of your postings promise something new almost every day.

    That does keep us (including your 149.062 visitors to date) coming back. Number 150,000 should visit around the middle of next week.
