No more tonight? As if!
Anyway, it transpires that turning my recalcitrant fridge to nine was sufficent to make sorbet out of my collection of Nipponese beers. No matter. They remain abundantly tasty even if turned into Slushies.

I'm a scientist, of sorts, so I know that anecdotal evidence is highly suspect. But I live in a country that prides itself on not having an army, on being as unbelligerent as they come. I have heard nothing but anti-Kerry sentiment this evening. The predominant criticism seems to be that he is a waffler. I don't sense any strong pro-Bush sentiment (quite the opposite at times), but Kerry is simply failing to energise his core supporters. OK, so this isn't the States, but we have a very large US population here and as far as I can tell, most people I know are broadly sympathetic to Democratic ideals but will vote GOP anyway, or more likely abstain. Bear in mind that this is
anecdotal evidence, and therefore extremely suspect. Suffice it to say, however, that the feeling I get from my woodland friends is that Kerry is a goner.
