I finally worked out The Secret to putting a banner up (it would have been quicker to read the instructions, I suppose). So The Beast is now proudly at the top of the blog, where he feels he belongs.
This is the full, uncropped, picture:
Next year I’ll try to blog more about him. At the moment he’s suffering from being from Melbourne. He pretends to not care about cricket, but I know he’s bluffing.
So, have a good New Year everyone, and I hope next year is better all round (whether you had a good year this year or not). I hope to see some of you in the flesh next year too: there are rumours all a-twitter about another CISB, and it’s about time I went to one.
The Beast would be happy for you to visit us in Frankfurt. Especially if you bring food.
