Sorry for the lack of updates lately. We've been slowly settling in to Melbourne. Zack loves his childcare, but settling in has meant a range of new infections in quick succession. (Conjunctivitis, a severe ear infection and gastroenteritis.) The latter, he managed to give to me, and this has meant that I now have new insight into the etymology of the term “wretched.”
Still, here are a few highlights of recent weeks. First, my logic students (they're bright and enthusiastic), the logic seminars we've run each Friday for the last few weeks (it's great to be in a place where we have the critical mass to sustain a regular seminar), the Bell Shakespeare production of The Comedy of Errors (in the pre-play warmup when the magician Pinch was doing a range of tricks, he used my jacket for one---the ubiquitous “I’ll make you think I’ve put this knife through your nice jacket” trick), and today's Father's Day extravaganza, featuring nice presents (things to read) and a wonderful breakfast, and a Zachary who slept in until 7:30am! Things are OK.
