You can't take a photo of this, it's already gone.

This week I have been mostly... sleepy

I have been mostly playing with my new Canon 5D Mk II

I'm currently reading... White Gold Wielder, Stephen Donaldson

I am mostly listening to... Muse

I am currently... Writing a paper

When I should be... Working harder

I am most looking forward to... The Muse concert on Thursday :)

This weekend I am... probably cooking an Easter dinner for everyone.

The website for my lab

Thanks guys!

Crickson> When will you be back in the UK? Have you booked your flights yet? I'm going to try and book sometime this week. My plan is to go via Iceland for a few days, so if you guys wanted a bit of an extra holiday, you should come along!

Sorry, have booked my flights already. Wish you'd let me know, I would have loved an excuse to stop off in Iceland.

Will be back in the UK from the 3rd to the 24th. I have no firm plans of what I'm doing yet, but will definitely be up in Leeds at some point. If you wanted to co-ordinate so that we could meet up with Andy in Sheffield then I'd be up for that. E-mail me at the usual address : )

the 3rd to the 24th of May? Are you missing Aaron's wedding (I'd heard it was on the 30th of May)? I've got a conference in Toronto until the 16th of May, and IcelandAir are doing free stopovers to Reykjavik between Toronto and London so that's my current plan. I'll probably be in the UK from around the 19th/20th until early June. My little sister's due to give birth at the end of May so my plans will partly depend on that too. I'll keep you posted.

Oh, I see - No, I have to return to the UK on the 3rd of March because my US visa expires, then I can re-enter on a new visa. Haven't booked anything for May yet, although I certainly intend to go. A stop-over in Iceland sounds great, I'll have to see what it costs. We're a bit disorganised at the moment - we still don't know if Ann's job will be extended for another 6 months, or another year, or not at all. If it's not extended at all then I've got a job offer from INRA and we have to quickly throw everything in a suitcase and move to Paris.

So, I haven't booked anything yet because I don't know where I'll be in May. I could be here, I could be in France, or everything could go titsup and I might be living in a small village outside Colchester with my parents. I try not to think of post-doc'ing as insecure, I like to see it as 'excitement'.

EDIT: Congrats to your sister!

Cuba is a place that you should visit borfee the US lifts the embargo. Once that happens, you will see the fast food places pop up like crazy. A friend has just returned from a holiday in Cayo Coco, and said he had a great time there. I was in Varadero a year ago for my third visit, which was fantastic as usual, but will try Cayo Coco next time for a change of scenery.The Mayan Rivera is also a very nice holiday destination. We returned home on December 3rd after two wonderful weeks there. No kidnappings or murders happening. That is taking place about 1500 miles from there on the US, Mexican border. The Cancun area is a tourist mecca that can't afford to have bad publicity. The resorts have good security, and outside the resorts is a large police, and military presents. We toured outside the resort several times, and never ran into any trouble. The mexican people are very helpful, and pleasant. We will be returning there again this year for some more sun, and fun.The food in Cuba is not always what you are used to. Going 4 4 and a half star is kind of iffy. The booze, and entertainment are good.The Mayan Riviera, 4 4 and a half star is pretty good. Usually several restaurants to choose from. Lots of entertainment day and night. If you do the all inclusive you will have all the booze and food you can consume with no extra charge. I do recommend that you check with a travel agent for the best resorts for your budget.What ever you choose, I'm sure you will enjoy.
