|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.
MARY PAGE, just the woman's name makes me shudder. scary, scary...
and way to go on working out. we'll make a jock out of you yet!

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....
