Well, that's odd. Being cast as Hermia in robert_jones' readthrough has made me more bouncy than my part III results, despite the fact that getting a merit was better than I needed and definitely a Good Thing. The part III results are a kind of deep "oh well, I'm glad that's over and was OK in the end" (I'm still appalled at the amount of maths I failed to do in the exams, and even getting a distinction wouldn't have changed that) whereas the readthrough is something fun that's going to happen soon. And I'll get to meet all these interesting LJ people. Oh, and M's reading Lysander, (shiney casting! *poing*!)

As always, there are sad friends as well as happy friends over the maths results. I hope everything works out for them.

Am too tired really to think about it or let it sink in. The Annoying Canadian TM (who is really a nice person, but monopolised every lecture asking the lecturer questions every thirty seconds) came top of DAMTP, showing that Cambridge teaching must be a good thing (as he hogged it to the exclusion of all less pushy people all year) And wonderful Ed got a distinction (which I never doubted would happen for a second) as did Miklos, and Tom and Chris and Laura and Tina passed when they seemed as worried as me that they wouldn't. The ceramony of the readings was as bizzarely Cambridge as last year, with much hat doffing and throwing of results. Which is good, as it's all the ceramony we get (no part III graduation)

Mayweek is continuing well, I will write it up at some point. For now, I will mearly say that John's May Ball was one of the best I've been to, and had Eight Varieties of Apple Juice. I must meet up with Stu again sometime soon.

In other news, the odds of me being able to do anything about the Hidious Trees (Don't get me wrong, I like trees, just not laylandi 10 inches from my bedroom window that are higher than the house) have become much worse, as the quote was over 1500 pounds. Given Mrs C begrudged us 150 pounds for guttering repairs I really can't see this one happening. Ah well.

Congratulations. I'm bouncing for you. Told you you'd be okay. (sorry I couldn't resist saying that....)

I would say "I told you so" about your Part III result, but that would be missing the point.

Finding me again shouldn't be all that hard, since I have to drop by Rivendell to return senji's copy of Exalted:the Lunars, so I merely have to do so sometime you're there. Or something similar. This plan had occurred to me, too.

Now, if only the Thing That Went Wrong with my exams was possibility II) rather than possibility I), then everyone I know is happy....

You could take out the leylandii yourself. You need a chainsaw and a couple of willing helpers, and someone with a log fire to appreciate them after a couple of years' seasoning.

(My parents and I took out a row of trees bigger than yours, it wasn't ridiculously hard if the women were in control and stopped the men doing anything stupid and overhasty).

You can stop them getting any bigger, of course, with a woodworking chisel.

Congratulations! :-) The hard work paid off, then?

My pet mathmos haven't told me their results yet, I hope they're not among the sad friends...

Do you have your marks breakdown yet, or is that still to come?

Still to come. It will be a thing of much amusement though... I'm predicting (as it doesn't really matter) that I was distinction level on Fluids of Swimming Things, scraped through on the rest, and the Committee for Deciding Weird Cases gave me a merit as they knew I was interested in PhDing.

Well, I ment Ed Brambley from Pembroke, but as both Ed Segal and Ed Wallace got distinctions too, there's not much of a distinction *ahem* between the three :-)

Reasons to name your children Ed....

How did Christian do? I had dinner with him last weekend and he was suggesting he may get a PHD off the back of results.... Does that seem likely?

He got a merit, same as me. Not sure if this is good enough to do theoretical physics in Cambridge, but it is for most other places, and he's in with a chance.

There certainly seems to be something about that name!

Do you know how Katie did?

I know how everyone did if you give me their surname, I have the piece of paper... but I'm very very bad at surnames...
