This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
Novell which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
- Up early; (breakfast at 9.00am is a lie-in).
Shower, nice breakfast cooked by Bruce, and then off to do
the rounds. First the cake lady, the ladies talked and
pointed and the photograph of what they wanted, while I
provided vague affirmations.
- Then off to Leiston Abbey where the reception
will be held; a really beautiful set of buildings; supposedly
the most romantic ruins in England [ Suffolk tourist
brochure ], very pleasant anyway. Besides everything being
extremely old and built out of bits of Monastry, it's very
well appointed, with a huge barn like building for us to
eat / Dance in. Candle-lit with large chandeliers, and all
somewhat extremely old. Also, cheap accomodation there inside
renovated / re-built parts of the old buildings. Currently
owned by 'Pro-Chorda' a charitable chamber music organisation,
just very lovely.
- Onto the florist; where I was apparantly not
wanted since flowers are to be kept secret from grooms,
admired some Orchids and talked to Bruce.
- Back home for sausages in baguettes, and then
off to the Vicar - Anthony Moore, who was fairly stayed, but
ok I suppose; not the ideal choice, but livable with.
Examined the church, it seems to fit with our plans - good.
- Back home, and much discussion over how the
invitations should be designed / printed, then a lull for
tea and sitting around with dress deliberation by the
- Examined some of the platinum wire Mr Griffin
had in stock for ring making; sadly none of the right size,
plenty of silver, measured our ring sizes. Hopefully I can
help make our rings.
- A fine meal, coffee, and then off home. Bed,
tired but happy.
In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Novell, The
Lithuanian Gov't or Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's also important to
realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences,
