Went over to Leeds on saturday, to meet up with a few fellow ESC fans. We allp seem to like different entries this year, there's no obvious front runner, although nearly all my favourite songs are in the semi-final which means, if those I like don't get through, there could be very few I actually like this year.
Then headed over to Huddersfield, where I lived for six years, to meet up with an old friend (Nathaniel) and to eat a curry which was excellent. Its BALOOSHAI, 3 Viaduct Street. Superb food, very authentic. The place looks as if it has been spruced up a little since I lived there. David was having one of his ferry weekends, incidentally, so we both indulged in our respective anorak activity.
This week will be busy. PhD viva on Saturday, and supposed to have a job interview for some more hours Wednesday morning, but can't see how I can get a decent presentation together with the PhD revision to do as well, plus lecturing and writing lectures....see what personnel have to say tomorrow.
The election campaign drags on, with a notable lack of excitement. The Tories are fighting a gutter campaign. Will that persuade me to return to Labour? I honestly don't know, I'd say that the likelihood is more no than yes, but I don't want the Tories in government. Neither do I wish to vote for my MP.
