it was supposed to rain today but turned out to be quite lovely, albeit a bit windy. fine by me. we went down to the market on the canal for lunch. i can’t believe tomorrow is april, we’ll be off to maynooth for a conference. a week from tomorrow benoît comes to visit, the monday after i start up a week-long time series analysis course, there’s an architecture in helsinki gig on the fifteenth, the week after i’m off to cambridge to see my telescopes (yes, MINE) and meet the other students working with them, and when i get back on the twenty-second, my darling drew parry will be in dublin waiting for me! i can’t wait to see him.
