Coming up for the twoth anniversary of O, Poor Robinson Crusoe! and I nearly didn't make it - juggling html templates yesterday while also looking after my beloved second child I almost accidentally killed it, the blog that is, and for half an hour I was glumly acclimatising myself to life after Bob Crusoe. My grief was interesting to me - I'd been thinking about chucking it in to be honest - and the relief I felt on seeing the familiar font and blogroll reappear from neverland was quite strong. So I'll not be parking this thing just yet, just finding ways to refresh. I have been marginally depressed by some of the recent, how to put it, pusillanimity? unpleasantness? in the theatre ****osphere (and before you say anything, there's the occasional thing in my archive I'm not exactly proud of, and I'm learning). But you know, I quite like having my own spot on the interweb and some people out there tune in from time to time, so... so what? so anyway I'll be hanging around on the corner of Robinson and Crusoe for a while yet, and while I figure out just quite how I'm going to Stop Worrying And Learn To Love The Hurlyburly in the neighbourhood I'll leave you with a link.
My sister- and brother-in-law and their company Red Redemption have designed a very interesting educational game for the BBC about climate change called Climate Challenge. Click on the graphic to start the action. Or go here for the hardcore science behind the Really Quite Interesting game.
