|My office desk yesterday. My laptop, large screen belongs|
to the Geology Department. This was when I was trying to
get YouTube to work.
|Evening light on the old University buildings (the 'Registry' -|
which is old speak for Administration) as I left this evening.
|Most of the University looks more like this.|
Concrete 50's, 60's and more recent buildings.
In other news, Dunedin is clearly a magnet for conventions. It was the New Zealand Parking Association Annual Conference yesterday. Note: in yesterday's paper there was a report of a parking enforcer having their gadget stolen and thrown in the lake at Queenstown by a disgruntled parkee.
Otherwise, it seems like animals have been having a hard time (I've heard of all sorts of things falling off the back of a truck, but calves?). I won't bore you with the myriad of lamb stories - anyone would think it was a slow news day - mostly about dogs worrying sheep.
|They are looking at pictures o f 'interesting' parking jobs|
|Calves unhurt after falling off vehicle|
|Okay. It shouldn't upload in this orientation.|
BUT, the point is that if I was in Alex this
weekend I would go to the merino shearing
My plan for the weekend: finish the text of the manuscript tomorrow. Then, as long as the weather is okay (it doesn't even have to be good) I'll take the Otago Excursion train up to Middlemarch and back. They filmed some of the Hobbit movie (due out in November or December) up in Middlemarch, and they are hoping for a tourism boom there.
