It was brilliant. The Ig Nobel prize is meant "to make you laugh and then think". They are all genuine research projects some of which have enormous value to the world at large but which sound really silly when you first hear of them. A good example is the Ukrainian Chemist who came up with the idea of making a bra which can be turned into two face masks. She did it because she worked with people who had breathed in radio active dust after Chernobyl. The dust had a short half life and if they had only been wearing masks for the first half hour, they would have been fine. The bra thing also works to ensure that an equal number of women are employed!


It was a great evening and a joy to watch, especially after a day of student presentations, some of which weren't quite so polished...

Off to The Senedd today with the students, then a few days off - whoo hoo!

Cross post with Seren and didn't see Nutty's post...

Well done Seren - 131 miles in the dark and it must have been terribly cold and windy too - you are amazing!

Nutty - sadly, no hoildays for me other than the bank holidays but I am hoping to get a bit of time off soon.

Seren - enjoy the break.  I would need a very long one after 131 miles!!

Tracey - same here.  Enjoy the festive weekend.

Nice out today.  Bit warmer too.

Took lemon drizzle cake to work today.  Went down a treat.  Bara brith is made and ready to eat for some friends visiting tomorrow too

it was a lovely day indeed, a bit windy on the sea front, but good (I think) practice for 3 weeks time 

I've now entered the hallowed halls of taper, the best bit of marathon training! 

So glad you are feeling better Nutty, I was thinking after some things  you said the other day, you seem to have had similar symptoms to whiplash which could possibly have happened when you fell. The recovery timing is about right as well! What do you think?

Taper is great Sue. Enjoy.
I thought it might have been a virus or concussion. So long as it's going I Don't mind. Thanks for your concern.
Look forward to celebrating your Marathon success and your birthday at pie fest.

Christmas all done and dusted. We had a great time, food was good and lots of laughter too. Managed to fit 10 around my table, but of a squeeze but we did it! Can't believe the amount of food I cooked and how little is left! Still a bit of Christmas pud left for after my morning run though - yum yum!

Glad it went well Tracey.  It is surprising with food.  It always takes a while to prepare and goes in a flash!!

Made pie to take to Cardiff today

has everyone gone on holiday?

coldcoldcold again yesterday! I took the wimp option and 'ran' on the dreadmill.

I have a strange feeling that Llanelli is going to be 'warm for the time of year'! All this trianing in icy conditions and we are going to be faced with hot sunshine and no wind, mark my words

I was feeling like Billy No Mates Sue!!

The marathon will be great.  You will do well after all your hard work.

Friday again

I'm here!

It was lovely last night, we ran through Clyne and Singleton - lots of primroses, crocuses and daffodils. Not too cold either, although I nearly got blown off my bike going in to work.

Evening all

Ran through Singleton park tonight and it was lovely as you say, Tracey.  Daffodils out and fresh air.  Can't beat running, even short distances.

Weekend again.  Where do the weeks go?
