hoping it matters

I spent the afternoon doing techfee things, an unofficial meeting and then trying to keep up on the office stuff that's not being done since we're without a coordinator at the moment.

When things were basically taken care of, I went to the IMA to swim before meeting up with epidemiologists for happy hour and debate watching. We convinced the bar staff to turn from the Yankees-Twins game so that we could watch on the large screen. Though it seemed like a unconvincing request, Finn MacCool's was soon filled with participatory debate watchers.

Bush seemed really annoyed and rude at the beginning of the debate, but I'm sort of willing to blame that on our close position to the speakers. Still, I think that Kerry was at least slightly better. Even if you're the type to call it a tie (which I'm not. Bush had some really bad answers, particularly about mistakes and the environment, looked testy, and affirmed that he was against slavery when discussing the supreme court; Kerry looked calm and tall and answered more coherently, keeping the focus on the incumbent); it's still a Kerry win, since the "tie goes to the challenger."

But, the noise of the loudness of the debate coupled with an impromptu drinking game leave me kind of headachey and tired.
