Forgot to pack gloves and thermal undies.


I didn't sleep on the plane yesterday because I was chatting with a biathlete about Russian doping (WADA van arrives to accommodation, russian coach puffs into cafeteria, russian athletes leave, leaving unfinished meals, russian coach descends to talk with wada officials, eventually leads them to cafeteria, russian coach is confused as athletes were there earlier, maybe they are in the other building, russian coach leads wada officials to other building, etc. etc.), Steven Hale's daughter, La Féclaz, Aix-les-Bains (he lives a few hundred metres from where the music festival was on 13th July). Etc.

He seemed pretty convinced that biathlon was a great sport, which bemused me.

running 36:00 [3]

Evening run. Long day after being up before 6 for the Musical Dawns (concerts aux Bains des Pâquis).
Am I ready to go to Scotland tomorrow? No
Have I a place to stay tomorrow? I nearly had.

Sometimes mathematics can be very frustrating. After battling with many papers trying to extract some citable theorems, I finally went to get *the* book on the subject from the maths library. Except on arriving, there was a sign up saying it had just closed for the month. I did cry out in the corridor, which led to a kind soul emerging from the coffee room and getting me let in. But then I found the book I was looking for, and it did everything I need, except not quite. And the theorem everyone has been citing doesn't say what it needs to, nor what people say it does.

O-Doubs ?

Why sleeping in a hammock can be nice (from 8 days ago in the Alps) -

And, people still make cowbells!
