03:55 pm - Our wines leave you nothing to hope for
Went to Minority Report on Friday night. It was a solid work, and a smart adaptation of the original fiction. With, naturally, a few cliches that made it less suspenseful when it deviated.

Our frisbee record remains unblemished. We played well for some of it - running about for 4.5 hours in 90 degree heat (probably the same in humidity) can be tiring. Went into work for a couple of hours before, and a couple of hours later. But for a good cause: the two remaining grad students started writing a paper on friday, due saturday midnight... seth left friday... and neither of them are native english speakers. I guess my ghost of Mary Page may be useful.

Started packing today, for lack of reason not to. Then I did laundry, and I'm on my way to try to work out for a bit. For lack of a reason not to. My linguistic interests continue to swell.

Got a phone call from ommkarja. Flutter flutter.

Does the fact that you are packing reflect some ambition of finding a new place to live in near future?

Mostly. I have 37 days to be completely moved.

But does that mean you're any closer to finding a place to live, or are you going to live out of RoboClub :-)

At this point... I don't know. I just don't. I've begun taking advantages of the showering capacities of the UC. Convenient -- with hottub. Good for removing that "ran around in a practice for 3 hours" feeling. That's probably a bad sign.

Blech, I have seen pictures of the cockroaches in the roboclub. Imagine them crawling on you while you sleep! EWWWWWWWWWWW!

The cockroaches have been reduced in number. And I am on pretty friendly terms with them. I think the far grosser concept is the couch, which... was not even new when the robotics club got it, which was before my time... and has slept dozens. There is a reasonable theory of its function as a cockroach mansion. And I'm not sure it has ever been cleaned.

...and I still sleep on it. Ewww.

Get some advice from Zia, and it will be just like Joe's Apartment.

Then there was the dead cat smell, because a cat got stuck in a pipe or somesuch.

However, these aren't the sorts of things that phase a hardened outdoorsman like Dan.

Based on the short story "Minority Report". A new collection of his short stories (of the same name) has been rereleased surrounding the film.

I just realized MP was a completely inside reference that only you would get. Heck, most of the people who read my journal probably think CSW is something that teaches you about computers.

I would not place money on the jock bit. Bit better shape, certainly.

Maybe you should look up your old classmates and get them hooked.

I would agree, the transformation to jock would require more than just exercise.

I did when I was there. That's the computer infrastructure I built. Ethernet, fiber, high speed access, email for everyone -- heck, that link probably still serves from the Sparc5 in what used to be in my office.

Does following the World Cup help or hurt my case?

I meant get them hooked on LiveJournal.

I don't think so. But that fact that you are now heavily participating in a sport might.

Perhaps I might, if I ever see any of them again. Haven't kept in touch with most of them. Hmmmm....
