busy week - peaceful weekend (hopefully!)

It's been a crazy week, and I'm rather glad it (and the deadline for the supervisor application, which I completed last night before bedtime!) is over.

There's no denying it's good experience, though - I've picked up a substantial amount of local knowledge, and apart from the tribulations of juggling tasks and some late evenings arriving home, it's been very rewarding.

Now, though, I can catch up on my personal emails, and hopefully eschew computers for a couple of days, devoting as much time as I can to my family.

I ought to mention something that attracted my attention on the PM radio programme - a chap known as Scanner has created an 'unofficial' Europe anthem, called "Europa 25". It's not to everyone's taste (certainly not a patch on 'Ode To Joy' - the official anthem, although I consider it something of a cop-out to use an established work of genius to 'sell' Europe) but I thought I'd post an MP3 here [256kB MP3] (slightly better quality version here [2MB MP3]).

It's in aid of the British Council - whatever that may be. The full version will be downloadable from the British Council website on Monday 29th November, and a free CD will be available, too.

Scanner, it would seem, has also done some work for the BBC, although I've not listened to it, yet.

Music, eh? now that sounds like an idea. I'm hoping that I'll have time to do some recording this weekend...

Link of the day:

  • adverts.freeloader.com/zurich : A fun parking challenge - or is that an oxymoron? My best score is 229, but I've only played it twice, honest! (Thanks to Cath for the link).
