After the Chaos Ball

Posted in Biographical, Football on April 5, 2014 by telescoper

I’ve been taking it easy today, recovering from a late night which involved attending the Annual Ball of the Chaos Society (that’s the Cardiff University Physics and Astronomy staff-student society). It was a grand affair, held in the National Museum of Wales and beginning with a drinks reception among the splendid Impressionist paintings and sculptures and continuing downstairs with a dinner dance, as shown in the picture. A few of us older reprobates then adjourned to a bar for a nightcap or several, all of which left me nursing a hangover this morning, although it was nice to see so many familiar faces again.

I’d like to thank the Chaos Society for inviting me and also send my condolences to the new boss of my old Department, Matt Griffin, on Cardiff City’s home defeat by Crystal Palace this afternoon. It looks pretty certain now that Cardiff will be playing Brighton in the Championship next season..

P.S. In the interest of balance I should point out that Newcastle got thrashed too, 4-0 at home to Manchester United. Their poor run continues against teams from the Midlands.
