Countdown to finals

December 19th, 2004 by MrLuxuryFashionGuru

I just arrived home not ten minutes ago, adjusting to the different palette of colours here under the warmer, more intense yellow-white sunlight of the tropics, and the more luxuriant air and vegetation.  I had a good flight home, no problems (other than missing my bus and then nearly missing my plane, you know, the usual) and I think I’ve finally gotten the trick to not overeating on the plane – just don’t eat much that day.

I’m not sure I’ve had such a productive journey since the last December when I read a goodly chunk of Not in Front of the Children for expos ( and mostly on the bus).  I started and finished the very excellent Da Vinci Code I’ve been meaning to read for a while now (thanks Tomas for lending it to me), got through about a third of Six Names of Beauty and saw three movies (here I’ll only reveal that one of them was De-Lovely, which I’ve also been dying to see).

So my last day of classes…  I skipped two classes to finish a problem set which I turned in two hours late, and then at 9.30pm I realised that I’d *forgotten* to turn in the chemistry problem set due at 5pm that I’d completed the night before.  I’m an awful student, aren’t I.  And just to add to the unfortunate events of the day, while cycling back from my 9am meeting with Prof Clark I slipped on the icy street and fell very awkwardly, throwing my back out and leaving me with lower back pain that made even putting shoes on a painful experience. 

On the upside, I went to see Whose Wife is it Anyway, which Calum is in.  It was brilliantly done, and quite easily the best stage production I’ve seen at Harvard.  I didn’t get to speak to Calum because he disappeared and I’d lost his number, but he was great.  Go see this show if you get the chance!  So funny, so British, so well executed.
