Just got home from the party

Just got home from loneraven's birthday party, which was excellent in all respects bar one -- that of having to park a mile and a quarter away from her flat because it's even harder to park in Oxford than it is in London.

It was a jolly good party, with lots of strange people in attendance, all of whom were dressed as instructed as fictional characters. The PPEists talked about political philosophy until the mathematicians ran away, and then the mathematicians talked about mathematics until the mediæval historians ran away. I didn't find out about what the mediæval historians talked about. I think I was oldest there, by a margin of about fifteen years. At least one girl, I'm sure, was only wearing her underwear, but I never found out which character she was intended to represent.
