Just back from meeting with the u.c.s.m people at the Apple Store (yes, I did spend too much money on a mouse) and dinner at Merkato, the Ethiopian restaurant in Cally Road. The latter was excellent. Good food and good company -but ate way too much (you kind of don't notice, when you're scooping out food in little bits out of a, what to call it, communal plate) and now I don't think I can go out again (although probably should go out jogging from here to Kings' Cross and back again, given the amount of food consumed..)
Overheard as I was getting into Kings Cross station: somebody with Australian accent says to his friend "But of course! Does the Pope shit in the woods..?"
