Ignore the post earlier today. Actually, the image upload problem appears to be a firefox problem. I’m not surprised — version 3.5 is a bit of a let down on Macs.

Anyway, here are some pics I meant to upload a long time ago.

In September, we had our Phd conference again.



District 9. A good movie worth watching.


Some homeless people set our garden on fire. It’s surprising how very fast fire spreads, even though it was some meters away from our house, it still filled the flat with smoke.

I called 112 from my mobile to inform the firefighters, it rings twice and then a woman picks up and is talking to someone else and giggling and snickering. I said “helloo??” after she did not start speaking to me, she: “Oh! Hey, hi! Fire or Police?”, me: “Fire!”, she: “Ok” and connected me. That wasn’t very reassuring 🙂 Anyway, they came very quickly (3 minutes or so) and put it out.


I thought about making the picture series “Weird Shit from Tesco”, potato cakes would certainly get a mention. Whenever I make potato cakes, I tell myself “this is not meant to taste like that”.


Our fire alarm when changing batteries:
