Fun day

Yesterday the shabbat service at synagogue was partly in celebration of three members of the community who have recently been promoted to professor. There probably are other places than Cambridge where this kind of thing happens, but I suspect there aren't very many! Anyway, one of the older members of the community wished me Please God by you!, which tickled me; goodness knows I've had to bite my tongue enough times when I get that comment in its more traditional context.

Then we met up with pseudomonas to see the yummy illuminated manuscripts at the Fitzwilliam. Oh wow. So very, very gorgeous. hatam_soferet, it's on till 11th December; do you think you could get here a bit early for Limmud so you can see it? It's an absolutely amazing exhibition, and anyone who's already in the UK should certainly see it. (And if you happened to make that an excuse to come and visit me at the same time, so much the better.)

Incidentally, one thing we learned from the exhibition was that the Emperor Charlemagne's father was called Pippin III. This is cool.

And then I went to the cinema to see the new Pride and Prejudice, which was also fun.
