Well, it is looking more or less official that IARC is offering me the second year of the postdoc. And similarly, it is looking more or less official that I am taking it. What can I say. I like it here, and I have no real desire to go back to the US and deal with 80-hour workweeks. It is just a more pleasant working environment here.
In other excitement, I won 11 euros at poker tonight. YAY!!
Spring has sprung. After the bizarre weather of last week, where it got chilly and we had at least 2 hailstorms, it has been sunny and in the 60s for the last 2 days.
I am getting ready for my next houseguest. Mark arrives on Saturday. I am not sure what exactly we will be doing while he is here next week?? He seems to have purchased an enormous Rhône-Alpes guidebook and perhaps hasn't quite managed to fight his way through it. But I am hoping to hit some nightclubs on Saturday. Lyon is not exactly known for its clubbing scene, but I am hoping we can make the best of it.
