Go here to see a remarkable series of photographs of snakes in a black box. I find something strangely fascinating about them; the patterns and colours are beautiful, and I guess there's the frisson of all those millions of years of evolution telling me to stay the fuck away from snakes.

I actually rather like snakes.

Your kitty-kat is PURE EVIL

This is what your cat looks like underneath all that cute fluff. EVIL!!!

Winter Weekend 2011

August 7th, 2011. Almost home-time. Photo credit: Diana Bidwell.
I had a good time, but because I was a late arrival I had to settle for a second-storey bunk (no ladder!). Surprisingly, there was no hilarious drunkenness-related bunk slapstick, but I did twist and strain my knee climbing out on the last morning. Ow! Lesson learned; it's clearly very important to limber up before getting out of bed.

About five minutes after this photo was taken it started snowing fit to bust, whereupon almost everyone bailed out before they got snowbound.
