An incoherent day. Narrative yet to emerge. So many teams on two - ANU 1, 2, 3, 7, 8 for example. ANU 4, 5, 6 on one. For a minute the projector stopped showing the draw and started showing something that looked like the Stars, or the Draw of Life as they are sometimes known.
Yesterday began muggy - became cold, the wind rose, the skies clouded - today it is wet. To me this suggested that the world was getting ready for some ~event~ - but then I remembered to stop my brain from making unjustified causal connections, which then suggested to me that the event was a debating tournament, like Easters!
Last night there was dancing. Dawn - hot cross buns and apples. Then Abigail McCarthy brutally indicting Jessy and Callum for their prioritisation of love above strict punctuality, and Dave telling us about the human brain. Then Round 1 (we'll collate ANU's results at the end of the day, but ANU 1, 2, 3, 6, 8 got up, 4 went down). Then sandwiches. Now Women's forum, in which everyone is being very polite and collaborative. Good discussion of equity. Good point Clyde ("preferred pronouns" aren't just "preferred").
