Hey Neil ! I might get there for the beer tasting... I've got lots of work this weekend so I might be missing the final. I hope not, though! So far I hope France wins.

I have to admit that I haven't gotten very far in your novel; however, I am enjoying it. The academic humor is quite good, although the jokes regarding the 'Americanization' of British academia are a bit off (some of the 'corrections' are wrong; we actually use a lot of common terms despite Wilde's comment about two nations separated by a common language...). Still, very witty and a fun read!
