The Annales Yesterday was my favourite day of the year - Ussherday.

In 1650 James Ussher famously named October 23, 4004 B.C. as the date for the Creation, which coincidentally, was also the first day of the Autumn term at Trinity college.

From my lofty eyrie overlooking the great thoroughfare I can look down on the freshly laundered masses thronging the street. If I yearn for human contact I can push through the huddled crowds of the Domino's quaffing Harry Potter generation, proudly sporting their Varsity Quiddich T-shirts.

Life has returned to the campus.

Put that in a MOOC.
