Hmm, another "catch up" entry, for the last few days.

Had ballroom dancing on Tuesday evening and tonight. These have both been male majorities again - on Tuesday in particular, it started out as 8 boys/3 girls, and finished as 7/2. I dunno, anyone would think this was Imperial College or something :) Anyway, aside from that the classes have been fun - we did tango this week, and I think I'm now getting the hang of turning corners. That's it for the term now - lessons start again in the New Year.

Lectures this week have all been revision classes, so nothing too strenuous there.

Had another vaguely productive day yesterday, when the dust levels in the house finally crossed my "this place is a tip" threshold, so I did a hoovering blitz :)

Played Magic in the library tonight with a few others, which was fun. I didn't actually win any of the games, but my "Luck deck" is now working quite well (I tweaked it a bit earlier), and made the game nicely random :)

Tomorrow's the last day of term (at Imperial and Kings), so the next few weeks will probably be fairly quiet without classes/undergrads around. But I've got some textbooks to read, and all the postgrads will be around for a while yet, so I won't be bored. In fact, we're hosting a Christmas dinner here on Saturday, then I'm meeting up with Durham friends next Tuesday, and I'm off to see "The Two Towers" on Wednesday.
