Ahoy there, Squidblog followers!
I've been typically reticent in my updates (if any of you have followed other blogs of mine, you know I refuse to update when there's nothing going on). Classes have supposedly started in force, but I have yet to see concrete evidence of these claims. Perhaps next week things will formalize.
Technically speaking, I took a long look at my Vista form (that's my unofficial transcript for you non-UVa folks), taught myself how to use SIS, the new class signup system, and emailed my advisor. I'm signing up for classes on April 6th, and things here look like I will repatriate in June with enough credits to stay on track to graduate in May 2010 (if not enough to make the Dean of Arts and Sciences happy, but haven't I talked myself out of a tight credit spot before?).
Anyway, that news aside, here's some of my pictures from our trip a couple weekends ago to Geneva, Switzerland. Here we go.
Looking down the promenade of beautiful Lake Geneva.
It's like a duck, except completely different.
The jet d'eau or jet of water, with a gorgeous rainbow.
This is a clock in a flowerbed.
The giant chess sets in the park.
A shot across the lake at night.
Requisite artsy shot of curving traffic light / onion dome building.
Inside the Protestant cathedral -- I don't know the name for these delicately carved pulpits, but I think they're gorgeous.
