Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
A few more notes before I turn in, hit the sack, grab some Zs, hit the hay.
My Logic TA resembles the actor Michael Keaton. No one else sees it, though, even when I point it out to them.
On Monday, as I sought my Russian textbook (which still hasn't arrived at the Bear Student Store, grrrr-ah), I saw ready-made study sheets arrayed in many subjects and colors. One pair caught my attention:
Greek Mythology: GODS
Greek Mythology: Mortals
Also on Monday, Professor Warren acted as I might expect a Logic professor to act. In an attempt to disambiguate a sample sentence, he said, "Fido will hungry today, Fido is hungry...what is today, the fifth?"
Professor Warren also sought a particular transparency to show us on the overhead projector, and lamented, "That's the problem with using these newfangled technologies." I cracked up.
"Today" my left foor and lower leg inexplicably cramped up something awful, but my sister massaged it with ointment and now it's all better. I wish I knew what caused the pain so that I could avoid that condition in the future.
And today in Logic lecture I sat next to Mike Carns. Mike Carns whom I knew freshman year, Mike Carns who was once my good friend, Mike Carns who -- I only realized today -- walks, like Leonard, with a characteristic shuffle. Mike -- Rent, Phantom of the Opera, Dilbert, A Prairie Home Companion, Angel Island, the Berkeley Rose Garden, Land's End, AtreNet, Danville, blue, death, long white fingers, Ming's cello, a Celtic cross, a gurgling cough, rigidity, Puzzlefighter, tears, hugs, paleness, "cold hands, warm heart." Is this web of connections the measure of intimacy?
