drinking in the dark

today is now yesterday. but that's O.K.

hi. i squandered the morning. went downtown for a burrito, and spent most of the afternoon working on the techfee survey instead of doing actual work involving epidemiology At least I was using Stata!. I always feel guilty in the presence of other people who are slaving away at other more meaningful tasks.

I read a great article in Wired1 about Dartmouth and its wireless campus. I'm sold. I feel like a wireless campus should be my mission next year. The stupid greenhouse at MSU never panned out, I need a good major capital expenditure.

There were a lot of people at Dante's tonight. Some things to remember: not-Mike = Martin; not-Elvis = Paul; not a woman = Kelly; not a man = Sam. Liquid Pez contains Southern Comfort and doesn't really taste like Pez, but the aftertaste is comparable. All in all, a fun night. Too bad next week is a boycott week!

Today I went to a meeting about surveying people. Apparently, many campus entities survey students about technology. It took a vice provost with a long title to come up with the idea that consolidation might be a good thing.

... looked at an apartment this afternoon.

Later, reading on the HUB lawn some guy was recruiting potential focus group participants. I think that market research sounds a hundred times better than jury duty!

I was going to have southern food with Elena & Charles tonight, but that plan was complicated by my sort of passing out while listening to NPR. And I had little confidence that it would be easy to find southern food that was not high in dead animal content.
