So we have a pirate President. Well I voted for him - I've known him a few years now and think he'll do a fantastic job. As for not meaning it to go this far....serves himself right for playing along with a friend's joke. :)
In other news, I'm still nowhere near a thesis, Daddy is nearing the end of his employment with nothing else lined up (bar marking exam that he set, later next term), and our mental healths have been suffering somewhat from both these, as well as a very talkative Terror. Still, having friends round tonight for RoboRally, which will help.
