After the dust has settled...

So, on the plus side, I don't think I made a complete and total arse of myself in the interview at UCL yesterday. One of the questions I neglected to ask was when I'd find out about the result, which was probably something of an oversight. But other than that I was quite pleased with how it all turned out.

Despite the fact that every item of clothing I was wearing (with the exception of my knickers, well boxers) was brand spanking new — bought on Friday or Saturday, to be precise — I had very few insults regarding my attire. In fact all I got were a couple of comments about my tie: ugly and too short.

In other news, that nice Mr Gaiman has just released (or his publisher's have at least) his latest book, Anansi Boys, and I am terribly excited about the prospect of buying a copy and reading it.

Incidentally since I arrived in the UK at 10am on Sunday morning, I have successfully spent something on the order of 15 hours (10 on Sunday, 5 on Monday) in licensed premises. Which I think is a quite a good achievement all things considered. Although I suspect that tonight I won't actually be able to add a great number of hours, if any, to the grand total, sadly.
