The Geminids peak tonight, apparently about 10pm, so if it's a clear night you may wish to wrap up and step outside. Thanks to sphyg and to /. for the reminder.
I just read an interesting Wikipedia article about Joe Hill, who as well as inspiring the song of the same name was also, apparently, the originator of the phrase "pie in the sky". There's a link, of course, to a page about one noted singer of said song - the actor, lawyer, singer, athlete, political activist and all-round hero (sadly almost forgotten these days) Paul Robeson. As I understand it both of my parents saw Robeson as
Hamlet Othello with the RSC - I must remember to ask them if I've got that one right.
Last night's Neon meeting was relaxed and pleasant. Only about half a dozen people turned up, and four of those were half an hour late. I was sitting alone for the first fifteen minutes. Suprisingly the weekend hasn't obviously wrecked my sleep patterns and I'm currently wide awake.
