My Kind of People

As mentioned previously, I spent last week up north with some pretty awesome people. How awesome? Within minutes of arrival, Andrea asked, "wanna watch videos of models falling down?" Yes I do. Anyone who insists that a game of badminton is possible and necessary in a 10 foot square room, and pulls a car over before I can finish the sentence "I really need to puke" is pretty frikkin awesome.

They are even more awesome for 30 Rock marathons three nights in a row, and for trying to get me to watch Battlestar Gallactica by saying "Come to the dork side", and for not making me watch Battlestar Gallactica.

As was also mentioned previously, I had a birthday last week. And although "celebration" is probably too strong a word to describe what I did on that day, I did receive a thoughtful gift from a cute guy, so I'm declaring this birthday a good one.

Happy Drinking Alone Day!

This day is special for a lot of reasons. It's the first day of spring break, which I will spend up north in a town you haven't heard of, in a little cabin which may or may not actually exist, with my good friends Bob and Andrea.

This year, February 14 happens exactly one week before my birthday. I haven't made any plans for this year, or any other year. I believe last year I celebrated in my friend's closet, spending some quality time with a homemade pie. It was a really really good pie, made by a friend who is a professional baker. It was so good that my then-roommate skipped a required class to help eat it, and as a result was forced to drop the class, which he needed to graduate. So he chose pie over graduation.

It also marks the third anniversary of me receiving Star Wars Epic Duels as a wonderful surprise gift from Tim. This game has changed my life. If you haven't played it, you should come over some time. It's pretty much the only thing to do at my house, which is why I end up eating pie in a closet on my birthday.

Math Jokes

roommate: you want some more soup?

me: no thanks, I think I've reached Lim(sup).

me: neither of these lemmas are useful for this. Maybe I'll just use them both and say I've reached a di-lemma.
