No time yet for a trip recap -- maybe tonight. Our departmental symposium is today and despite the name, it will be a chance to hear students read their work, which is a good thing, although it's been a headache for the planning committee (well, the part of the committee that was available for planning). Somehow it will all work out, right?
I got my tickets for the swift visit to London and Oxford next month. Not much time to do a lot, but I can see the Brookses and maybe sneak a little time to wander around Oxford during the conference.
Apropos of nothing, I post the neato poster Gene found of a sanctioned Hello Kitty event. Looks like a lark, eh?
