2010

This past year, I made very good use of local cousel council services, including gaining the right to vote in the UK, along with citizenship, and getting married. I worked on a couple of different academic articles, gave three conference papers, one of which was at a surprise conference in honor of my PhD supervisor's retirement, quite possibly the only surprise conference I will ever attend. I did a fair amount of traveling (see below), and day-tripped Leicester a number of times. I joined the boards of SHMTS and the SFF, and began the process of taking on Vector for the BSFA. I had a number of amazing meals, including my first three-star Michelin restaurant. The best meal of the year was at The Square in central London.

Thank you!

Well, you were doing other time-consuming things which rather limited your travel options in the latter part of the year.

The Square... Haven't been there. Yet.

Post a link to the relevant review?

I still haven't written it up. But I intend to. (This does mean it will lose out on some of the detail which I had immediately after, but between memory, photos, and menu, I should be able to give a decent sense of it.)

Too many Springfield's in the US
MO rather than MA? Just spent a fun evening with your Dad. Lee
