the only earth?

(no subject)

For this entry, I'll take an inventory of the current state of affairs on my floor.

Pile #1: A basket of laundry that I washed three days ago. It is clean, just not folded. It is so much easier to just take unfolded clothes as needed rather than take the time to put it away.

Pile #2: Books. Textbooks live here as well as poor, abandoned Moby Dick. Some of the writing in the first chapters was amazing, but a couple weeks ago I hit the wall and couldn't take another chapter on the technical aspects of whaling operations. Last week I retired Pastoralia from the in-progress to the completed pile; so it might be a good time to head back to the high seas. It will have to compete with Fast Food Nation for my attention.

Pile #3: STF proposals. I read half of them this weekend, but there're a lot of people out there who want money.

Well, this was a lot more clever in my mind. The point is to illustrate the flaw of procrastination, but at least there aren't any piles of rotting food or anything gross; so I won't be too hard on myself.

state of the union

I had to stop watching the big speech when the audience rose to its feet to applaud a return to deficit spending.

state of the bedroom floor: laundry has been eliminated. the power of public humiliation, I suppose.

things I did today

Well, another night of Murphy's trivia. This is week 3, so it looks like it's going to stick as a weekly activity. This week Jon joined the original crew. We aren't really getting any better at answering lots of questions, but are darts skillz are improving. This week's questions weren't impossible, we just didn't happen to know the answers. And the guys team won the last game of darts, so that was a bit redeeming.

Other than that, my day was mostly spent doing class-type things. Journal club, a huge block of biostatistics, a meeting for the group project, and then to the library to pick up some articles.
