With the start of work comes the end of things to talk about. I really got nothin'. But here goes anyway.
Today I played with the "Next Blog" button at the top of my blog for the first time. I was amazed at the stuff you can find out there; for example, everything you ever wanted to know about prostate cancer, right there waiting for you. Need to move to Minneapolis for treatment at the Mayo Clinic? You'll need moving boxes. Having concerns about how to pay for your prostate cancer treatment? Well, 0% APR Credit Card info just might be your saviour. But take it from me, be careful any time you buy prostate cancer online.
Saturday night I will be joining Eric's jazz combo at an informal gig with their friends in attendance to sing a song about Derek. Great, right? Well, great until I realized I don't think I can sing and play guitar at the same time anymore. Come to think of it, I don't think I ever could. Oh well, I'm sure I can miraculously improve my coordination in the next two days... but it's going to take some moral support. Who amongst you will come watch me sing a song rife with homosexual undertones amongst people I don't know?
Things I have learned today on teh intarweb:
- People don't watch enough classic SNL
- A Catholic schoolteacher has called for my castration
- I am a republican
It's amazing how easily people will turn on you when you call someone an ignorant slut. I even provided context -- and as you, my dear readers, know, I never provide context online -- and people are still calling for my balls. And, I have to add, it's quite astonishing that so many people don't remember the classic SNL bit. I simultaneously pooh-pooh your lack of pop-culture knowledge and envy your having of lives.
It looks like next year I will be the TA for the main graduate probability course at Berkeley (the one I just finished). How's that for an ego trip, eh? People come from the world around to study probability at Berkeley, and who's gonna be their TA?
Me, baby, me.
You know what that is? Fuckin' clutch, that's what.
