I got up, spent most of the day listening to Depeche Mode and running WoA stuff. In the evening I cycled to Huw's block (i.e. 3 miles away) and recorded a podcast with him. We spent a lot of time chatting, laughing, mocking each other (mostly me, he's very fast and witty). The cycle back was at about 2130, because of my gloves I didn't get cold hands at all! In fact, I had to take the gloves off because they were so hot! I spent several hours untangling knots in string (remember that plane I found two weeks ago?) and now have hurting finger-tips, though that's probably from all the Gaffer Tape used.

Up at the early early time of 0940. this wasn't overly good as I was doing a podcast with Coel. We recorded the last of it, I did some WoA stuff and then got the train to Portsmouth. The first leg of my journey was excellent. I played a very very challanging game of chess against a person called Darren, then an equally challanging game of draughts. The second (and longer) leg of the journey was very boring. Nobody to play games with. I got back to my room and was greeted within 2 minutes by loud music from Sam. Lucky I'm planning on sorting through some Depeche Mode. Yes, it feels good to be back. Even better? I have internet! The Uni said that it'd be down, yay for me. In WoA I have made an interesting discovery. When you have controversial rule suggestions, anything that'll cause a large scale imbalance. Rather than creating a stalemate by just talking about it, the best result seems to be to offer a radical "test" method. Well, that's about it for today. Tomorrow might be more interesting. If you want to listen to my talking about WoA, open iTunes, click on "Advanced" menu and then "Subscribe to Podcast". Into that box paste http://woarl.com/soov/feed.xml OR, goto here and download them via the server. Note: For some reason it'll cut some downloads in half when you download them, simply give it five minutes and try again.

Most of my days have been filled with working on the bucket load of WoA stuff that we want to get done before the next world. One of the guys from the CU has started playing and is enjoying it immensly, we figured that seeing as we both live (during term time) near each other we'd do the podcast together, that'll be a laugh. We've had our Gran, Uncle, Auntie and her Boyfriend over. It was a really nice meal (home cooked meals still win over the refectory food). Another plus of being at home is that the food is all free. Easter was great and I had a good bit of chocolate. I've enjoyed sleeping in and having a shower about six times as powerful as the one in Uni. I'm really looking forwards to going back to Uni, I've got a 4-in-1 board game thing for the train which'll help loads. I'm also going to challange myself and see how long I can go without critisizing each day. I'll try to keep track of it and see if my ability improves.
