Murder most boozy

Thanks to everyone who came along (and brought tasty alcohol!) to the murder mystery party on Friday. It may have been one of the best yet - multi-coloured drinks, some fabulous costumes and accents, best robot ever, etc etc. I wish I'd given myself more time to prepare, though; Friday was an insanely hectic day even with Matt Reynold's help and even after I cut three items from the menu (Dan - there's some shortcrust pastry wrapped up in a plastic bag in your fridge, it'll have gone off by the time I get back). I felt quite unwell on Saturday, and managed to enjoy not one but two hangovers.

I've done well for seeing people I don't often see, lately; Kit and Fiona came down to Aber, which was nice, and we had Graham and InThe around for most of this last weekend. I even caught a glimpse of the elusive Bryn at lunch yesterday.

Series two of Dollhouse has ended. I feel sad for all the stories we won't get to hear; there're a lot of gaps. Whedon is deeply sly.

In other news, today I am translating a program from Fortran to Ruby. I feel a bit weird. Although, really, it wasn't a good idea to write a program which is heavy on string-manipulation in a language with almost no inbuilt string methods (trim and index are about all you get), let alone regexp support. Talk about golden hammer...
