let's see.

I watched some quality television this morning: the High School Reunion marathon from last night and Made on MTV (about a kid who wanted to be a varsity basketball player). Reality TV. So absolutely not real, but very watchable. I think that a ten-year reunion might even be worth attending if it was held in Hawai'i.

After that spree of productivity, I went to the CHRU for a progress meeting. It was pretty painless, but it did highlight that I basically have no clue about what I want to do with my life once I get my PhD. And that I don't really have a dissertation topic, or any concrete ideas for one. My goal for that will be the spring quarter.

After that, I didn't get much of anything done; mostly because I was distracted by planning for Miami. So far, we haven't located a trainee beach house; so we might be stuck with conventional accommodations.

Now I think I'm off to Dante's. No prizes, but still likely to be fun.

Re:

I was going to say that Dante's is its own reward, but I think you've pretty much covered it.

Strange that they don't have Pabst Blue Ribbon at Dante's, isn't it? Or isn't it scenester enough for PBR?

Re:

Cheap beer knows no social constraints.
I think that PBR is an exception to that rule.
i was watching that Made too, thinking about how dumb it was yet how i wasn't changing the channel (or god forbid, turning off the tv).
I kept thinking that I should stop watching, but I really needed to know whether or not he'd made the varsity team.

Re:

Duh! Of course he was going to. I bet he still sucked though.
See, I really thought that he'd make JV, so that there could still be some sort of lesson. I really enjoyed that he only wanted to play basketball to be popular. By the end, maybe there was a lesson about perseverance, but not really about love for the game.

You're right though, he'll probably not play very much at all.
When/why are you going to Miami?

And were you trying to be pretentious by hyphenating "Hawaii?"
I'm going to Miami in March for an American Heart Association conference.

I was not trying to be pretentious by hyphenating using an apostrophe in the name of that state. I think it's the way the Hawai'ians want it to be spelled.
Okay, I laughed out loud at that - you ARE a dork (but it was a good one! You got her!) but you ARE also pretentious.

And I didn't know you were going to Mia'mi!
Please direct this question to Mark Nakamoto, I'm sure he'll support me on this matter.
Okay, okay - I'm sure he's right. But . . . it's just . . . funny.

And I said you WERE NOT a dork, just to clear that up. I think it's funny that you would want to sneak into some random class to hear the founder of lj talk.
