As most people know, there’s a big sporting competition going on – the London 2012 Olympics. One of the pre-Olympic activities that we’d been seeing on the news for weeks was the Olympic Torch. We figured we should see it when it came to Cambridge. Particularly since it was planned to go past our street. So we wandered the 100m down the road, met some of our friends, and watched the parade. The streets were packed with locals, but unfortunately […]

We’ve had a full season of both soccer and hockey. We’ve gotten to know a bunch of great people and filled many of our weekends. Good points all round. It was also great that we got to have a run around and not turn into beer drinking slugs at the local pub. We’ve only got 1 or 2 games left for the season. My team is in mid-table obsurity. Rob’s is 3rd or 4th in their grade. Bring on next […]

Our pub visiting has been very very quiet over the winter. Typically, once you get home on Friday, you don’t want to venture out into the weather and on Saturday you’ll just go somewhere close. I’m sure we’ll be more adventurous once the weather warms up! One of the nice things my hockey club does is have ‘teas’ after every game. That is, we go to a pub and have some food and drinks after the game. The Earl fo […]

I’ve been pretty lazy this past 6 months. No sport, the occasional cycle around, but nothing really *really* active. But I finally got off my butt and signed up to a local hockey club. Cambridge South Hockey Club, to be exact. It’s a pretty social club, and these are a good bunch of girls too. I felt pretty darn rusty on my skills, but they threw me up as a forward, so I had a good go of it. Aside […]

So, in order of things that have occured, I got a hockey ball walloped my thigh. See beautiful picture below. What was kinda interesting was that I didn’t really notice my leg had taken the full impact of this girl’s hit, because it nicked my hand first and that hurt *so* much more. Both hand and leg are fine now, with mild discolourations. 🙂 In other news, Rob bought himself a new digital camera. JVC, 30Gb hard drive (so no […]

Hey guys, So, I had a good week and weekend. This week I started doing some coding (yay for code!) to get a feel for some of the common algorithms in use for object recognition (which is one of the key parts of my project) and it’s been quite enjoyable. Im glad to not be reading anymore. *sigh* But this weekend, I went to Yum Cha with Lara (postgrad friend), won my hockey game and went to dinner with a […]

Hey everybody, So, Saturday I spent 3 hours looking for hockey shoes after bussing and training all over town. Ack. I decided when I got home that they were a size too big, so went back to the shop the next day to swap them, dammit. So, Saturday night was heaps of fun though. It was the Hockey Club Cocktail Party, which had a Barbie and Ken theme. I went as Punk Barbie, which involved lots of eyeliner and some […]
