Still summer

It is 8 am. Still summer, allegedly. A grey sky and subdued light. The pavements outside have that almost dry look. A temporary state.

I have read little over the past few days. Instead I have been working on my talk for the Nature Conference 'Blogging and Creativity'. Yesterday I practised giving it to Hodmandod Senior and it was so bad I felt I had to start all over again, which I did. Now I think it is much better.

I am sure the event will go very well, but best of luck. Is that you lurking behind that wet hair? I think I can just about see part of an eye, but I'm not sure.

You've practised your talk?

I haven't even thought what I'm going to say, yet. OK, it's a panel discussion, but I've got the Open Science thing in Southampton two days later and I haven't done anything for that, either.

Thanks, Pierre. Yes, that's me. I saw myself in the mirror and I liked the look :-)

Well, RPG you're the third person who's said exactly the same to me in the last day! Unfortunately I'm the sort of person who feels obliged to be prepared. My mouth has a particularly poor connection to my brain and I am hopeless at improvisation.

I hope you sweep back that mane of lustrous hair BEFORE your talk??

Ha, no maybe I shall hide behind it. Very good idea, Jan!

Planning's let you make it better, so it must be good. Even so, I have to admit that if I work something out to the last detail, I just can't make it work. It seems to leave me with too much brain left over to worry about the audience.
