"alea iacta est"

Wednesday afternoon following, I'm driving home from work to get to the bank.

Radio Scotland headline: "Pound hits record low against the Euro."

I get to the bank in plenty time to transfer a good portion of my savings to a German bank account. In Euros.

Miraculously, the entry was expedited through the frenzy of over-subscription and we got the "Congratulations!" email, rather than the "Sorry!" one I'd been expecting.

So team Dunracin' will line up on the starting grid in Mittenwald on 18 July. We've crossed the Rubicon. (Well, we can uncross it if we want, but that's not really the point).
