Am writing - in haste - from the school's computer room. I just finished my last class of the year and was asked on the spur of the moment to help with the placement of a prospective student. A very interesting conversation ensued, which encompassed topics ranging from why Germans don't like Google Street View (they hate it, but some people seem to really love Google), to the role of new media in manipulating the public, to why the Danes tend not to lower their curtains in the evening. A most interesting conversation; this job certainly has its moments.
Less interestingly, I am labouring under a heavy cold which I've had for about a week. I just want to crawl under the blankets with a hot tea and a good book (the impracticality of this I don't need you to point out, dear reader!) and sleep for a month. That, of course, isn't an option. There's going to be a small gathering at the Frau Doktor's tomorrow night at which my presence is expected. And I'm looking forward to it. So, time for another hot lemon tea mixture and here's hoping I recover enough to enjoy things.
