Jottings on science, religion, technology, pop culture and faith from the Antipodes.


Clearing the decks (and the desk)

End of the week. Handed my supervisors the last bit of the thesis and returned an excessive number of books (50+) to four different libraries around Auckland. Tried (and failed) to buy a digital camera, but picked up the latest GL, GL Corps and Ion comics in town.

Tomorrow, we’re off to the wedding of a couple of friends. Should be good.

And then we’re all off to the Riviera of the South Pacific (Christchurch) via the Heavenly City (Wellington) for a couple of weeks. A much needed break to catch up with friends and family, and to restore the our souls.


  1. Many congratulations! What a great feeling that is, eh? Bravo!

  2. Thanks for the congratulations. Actually, I’m too tired to feel elated about reaching a milestone on final run to completion, but it’s nice to look at the 100,000+ words in a pile on the desk. What with all the other dashing about to do today and tomorrow, there hasn’t been really any time to reflect on it. However, I imagine in a day or so, when I’m moving into holiday mode I’ll be more able to appreciate it.

    Really, really looking forward to submitting in the near future. Then I think you’ll hear a cheer (and deep sigh of relief) from the Antipodes.

    BTW – GL #14 played up all the stuff about Hal that winds me up – especially the American Air Force thing. Is Hal the new Guy? Plus it felt quite disjointed. Hopefully, they’ll pull a decent story out of it. Must have been a month for disjointed stories Ion and GL Corps also felt out of rhythm.
