It’s been an auspicious day for my nerdy cs friends. Paul just informed me that he is The Guy, apparently having defeated the 8 bosses of I Wanna Be The Guy. Quite the achievement. Give the game a try if you don’t believe me.
Also, Liam is apparently now the owner of a Bag of Crap, so congratulations on your purchase, I wish you the best of luck.

Liam was the featured caller on the Woot podcast… I guess yesterday. Here. I recognized him without even knowing he’d called, and without hearing he called from Ellensburg, Washington. I was listening and I was thinking, that’s kinda like Liam, and then at the end he called him Ellensburg so I rewound and knew it was him from the intro. Anyway, he’s a CS guy, sit’s next to me, and he’s on the famous Wootcast. I’m gonna get him to sign something.

My ear buds are dead, so I’ve been walking around campus with my giant headphones. It’s pretty cool. They double as earmuffs. They fit underneath my giant hood of the sweatshirt I’m always wearing, too. The cord is so long it goes from my pocket, to my shins, to my head.
Took a physics test yesterday. First one, so I dunno how I did. I’m not concerned, though. I did well on the practice test and I am just taking the class for fun, so I think I’m getting what I came for.
A bunch of us went to play badmitton in the gym yesterday. At one point Hiro and I played against Dan and Luke in a match where we actually kept score. I wasn’t paying close attention but I was told at one point that the score was 10-2 them and we were playing match point. When we won that volley I told Dan and Luke they better watch out, we were gonna come from behind. Guess how that ended. That’s right, 9 unanswered points for Hiro and I. Go team short and apathetic!
Today in class Paul stole someone’s sunglasses, and was still wearing his beanie and was just sitting in the middle of the lecture with that look going. So Liam has a beany and sunglasses and copies him. And then like 3 more of us sitting in the vacinity put our hoods way up and I had my hair in my face. The professor was writing a bunch of stuff on the board while this was going on and he turned around and was all like, “Jesus! What is this uni-bomber class?” And we were all sitting in the second row so the whole first row had no idea what was going on. It was pretty funny.
I jogged a 7 minute 50 second mile today. That’s according to Elisabeth, I wasn’t timing. I was surprised at the speed since I can’t remember the last time I officially ran a mile, unless that’s what Donny and I did that one time last year. Gonna try and keep doing it fairly frequently and see if I can improve.
Tomorrow I might go grocery shopping for lentil stew fixings which I might make sometime soonish. After this shopping we’re gonna play D&D again, finally. Hopefully tomorrow will be a good day.
