Oh my god. There's, like, a woman in that last picture! Where did she come from?!
She's not, AFAIK, a Python programmer. Though, come to think of it, I didn't actually ask her as such. Chris (the guy on the left of that photo) seems to have a way with the laydeez.
Can someone who understand women explain something to me? She asked us to guess her age. Chris went for the early twenties, I went for nineteen. Turns out I was right, but for for some reasion this seemed to offend her. Why?
You fool! The correct age is always in the early twenties! (unless of course they are 70 in which case try the early 40s). Pick younger and suddenly they believe you picture them as incompetant and naive, pick older... and well you know what happens then. I usually go for 22, because it's a nice uncontoversial age.
Everyone, not just women, goes through that stage when youngish of wanting to look older than they are. 19 is on the edge of that stage, but still in it I reckon. She wanted to look 'grown up' and you saw through it. That's why.
Missed this one. Didn't realise it was the Nepali New Year 2062 Eve.
glad to see that I avoided (nearly) any photographic record.. look forward to the next meet!
