Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

It won’t last …

sshinyutasofficeI arrived at the University of Tasmania today, and they gave me an office with a nice empty desk and clear bookshelves. 

Those of you who know the state of my Melbourne office will be wondering how long it will last.

I can tell you: 

About 10 minutes (in fact, I had to clear it again, in order to take the photograph!!)

It’s very quiet here at the moment, because the main person I came to visit is currently in … Melbourne (gotta love life’s little ironies)! Some of the settling-in things are working well (on arrival I received a key and a nice box of brand new stationery, plus some IT support for setting up), but I don’t have my email running in the usual way at the moment. I hope this can be resolved as I’ll be much more efficient if I can run things “normally” (it’s kind of ironic that I can have things working well in a random Wellington hotel room, but things get more clunky when I just change to a different Australian university). Today I’ve tried to tidy up some left-over tasks from the chaos of last week, and then I’ll be able to get stuck into some real desk-messing work.

    That can’t be your desk! I have seen your desk. I want proof!
    Have a sensational time. Janine
    Hi Helen, how are you ? How is Tasmania? We went camping in Newcastle. Hannah
