I probably owe people a real update, instead of just random rants. arnhem thinks I'm turning into a comments whore ;-) And I must admit I'm starting to worry about my LJ addiction. I don't mind so much the time spent reading or posting, it's the endless brainless thoughtless rereading and clicking reload that I have to stop. I mean, really have to stop. It doesn't make me happy, it just makes me depressed that I'm wasting time. I'm hoping I can loose that bit without going cold turkey on the whole of LJ, but I'm worried that my self control won't be strong enough. Actually, given the last few weeks I'm worried that I have no self control. Momentary relief and meaningless pleasure seeking seem so much more satisfactory than good hard work...

Then again, it's kind of rewarding pouring so much of yourself out and seeing random fragments being reflected back. Or maybe I'm just arrogant and none of this was anything to do with me. atreic is a contagious meme? Go on, add me as an interest... :-) I am however sorry for anyone I upset, and always glad to be told when I've upset people. At least then when I do it it's not by accident :-/

Work is scary, the big people from Siemanns are coming tomorrow and I have to give a presentation, which is too long because my supervisor kept adding slides and wouldn't let me take anything out.

Had a publicity subcommittee meeting today. I hope it'll all pull itself together and do what it should do. I'll believe it when I see it. Although Adam is a huge assest to the committee.

The weather is lovely. It's great :-)

Life has been a busy rush of social whirl. Monday was pizza, with post pizza in Girton, Tuesday I actually Saw My HouseMates (and killed alians with them), Wednesday I dined at wildeabandons to save robert_jones from the Goth Book Club (although I'm not sure if it was a successful saving, or if enduring an evening with drunken Sally for company was far worse) Thursday was a facilities committee meeting after pubbage with emperor. Then Friday was Alison's birthday, where I was plied with much Baileys and computer games, and on Saturday it was down to Sams for her engagement party. Lots of nice people there, although I was surprised how many of her friends were DICCU, as she's a very practical rational atheist. And now I have chaired my first publicity committee meeting, done the final draft of the presentation for tomorrow, and called in to see Susan. *phew* I'm exhaused, and it's the start of the week again!

Reflections: mmm, I'd probably not have made this entry if not for your recent musings.

Much of my tour-of-Cambridge-churches came from me being a non-Christian having lots of CICCU friends. Tagging along to events was easier than trying to reconvene later. It was interesting to me from an anthropological point of view: for instance, I thought their prayer schedule such that Christians-in-exams had other Christians praying for them during that time, an excellent idea. Then again, I was merely not-Christian, rather than anti-Christian, IYSWIM, so maybe that's not so strange, depending on quite what rational atheism entails.
