Decided to use my Borders coupon to buy his new book, so I could read up on his exploits in Europe. Channel Seven have apparently got the rights to his new series, which makes me a little nervous (all his previous travel shows have been on the wonderfully commercial-free ABC), since commercial networks are known for being fickle (and if the ratings are low, they'll pull it from the schedule after a couple of episodes).
Got the fourth draft of RID back from Rick. He's gone through the draft systematically and used that commenting function in MS Word, which is rather useful. The next draft will probably be the final one, since all I really need to do now is polish up the sentences a bit and provide a little elaboration on some points, The number of spelling/grammar errors he's found is scary though. I'm clearly not vigilant enough about this sort of thing, which is alarming though an important factor to keep in mind for the thesis next year.
