Day off, Auckland.

23 November 2006
Day off, Auckland.
Woke up to discover that there are a pair of seagulls nesting outside my window. They have three tiny little chicks who cant be more than a week or two old, which they feed, groom and generally fuss over. Its rather sweet to see nature settling into the cracks of urban life.

I spent much of the day in my room working on the computer, getting round to answering a lot of correspondence which has been clogging my inbox for months, including finally getting through the list of students whove been waiting to get a reply from me. I also caught up with a couple of people on iChat, which is a marvelous invention for those of us who are trapped out in space.

Spent the evening being sociable, for once, firstly with some friends at a bar with a fabulous view of the bay, then later a rendezvous with Bruce at The Grove. This is a restaurant owned by some friends of friends of mine from California and it turned out to be spectacularly good. Meal of the year, Bruce reckoned and hes not one for idle praise, I can tell you.
