urg. it's hot. it's eating cherries and wearing skirts hot. i just got back from meeting a friend on the drive. she had a martinti with a twist, i had champagne with flakes of gold in it, we did some half-arsed shopping and then got gelati. the perfect afternoon.
now i'm going to read _the autobiography of harriet martinaeu_, _story of an african farm_ and some critical work, then totter down to the postoffice and pick up my SECOND PARCEL FOR THIS WEEK!
my meeting with my supervisor yesterday went well. i was worried he was going to bawl me out, cos of this draft being a painful thing of pain and procrastination, but he liked it! he said it was a good draft and i had taken his suggestions well. he gaveconcrete suggestions for improvement and wrote all over the draft, and suggested a few more books to look at. then we had a nice chat about where we're from and what i'm going to do for my birthday and where i should do my phd. a very satisfactory meeting. i'm to do another draft by the 23rd of july then send it off to my secondary supervisor person.
yesterday i went for a ride round false creek again, which was lovely. we had a paddle in the sea, and it was warm. but the water was kinda murky. hmm. oh, and critical mass happened again! oh, it is such the best fun! there were 1800 ppl! check this out. the camera work's kinda shoddy (not my doing), but it gives you an idea of the scale:
