Excitement, Adventure and Really Wild Things
… is what I’m hoping to get from Sheffield Pride, which I go to tomorrow, after first scampering to John Lewis, who have a sale on wool. Priorities: I has them.
In other news, Kirsten’s house is very nice, and she was a fantastic host as ever and had bought my favourite tea; I didn’t eat all her food; and I’m now home and my corriander plants are not dead!
I also saw my brother for his birthday (he’s 9 now, and – because he likes talking to me about maths – he’s a bit miffed that his birthday is now only a square number, rather than a cubed number). Incidentally, he and my father were trying to make a mathematical football team. Any constant symbol counts, but the natural numbers (1, 2, etc) don’t. So far, we’ve thought of infinity, pi*, e and i. I reckon that 0 counts, since it’s a concept as well as an integer, but now I’m a bit stumped. Any suggestions?
*pi is a really useful word in scrabble, too!
