For any of the seven people who still check this space regularly, here's a little update. The last month has been one of change and recharge for me personally, and by this extension, for this site. I have left the weather-vane watching and the breezy academic lifestyle of Dunedin and replaced it with the constant ball sweat and the uber-suburban placidity of Brisbane's southern localities. Based on previous experience, I know I won't be able to withstand the latter lifestyle for very long, so I will soon head out to do the only thing I am qualified to as a philosophy graduate... teach English to little Asian kids.
Before that, however, I might as well use my time in the land of Oz constructively. Therefore, for the duration of the India v. Australia series, I promise to eschew the tangential diversions and navel-gazing ramblings so common to this blog and just focus on the cricket. It'll be hard, believe me, but if there is any time to do it, it's now. This might be the only interesting Test series of the summer, after all.
