Links Things I enjoy Update

Updating… because I don’t have headphones

Is there a word for a person who is willing to have sex with someone because that someone’s sexual history is linked to some highly desirable person?  Like, Lisa loves Johnny Depp so she’s willing to sleep with Mike because Mike had a tryst with Depp’s ex-wife, for example.  If there isn’t such a word, perhaps someone should craft one.  It seems like the kind of thing that could use a good latinate word.

Paul Pirone, CS friend, won the Central Washington University strong man competition that was held recently.  So congrats to him.  I saw him win the flippy tire thing and the round stone picky upy thing so I figured he probably did well, but I didn’t stick around to see that he actually won.

I guess I haven’t posted since Lauren and I came out as a couple.  So, yeah, we’re dating.  One caveat for you guys out there, we haven’t come out to her family yet.  We’re assuming none of them read this, but if you could avoid telling them, or posting things on facebook in such a way that they might see, or whatever, that would be appreciated.

So, probably largely because of this new dating situation, I’ve stayed with the Central people.  Hanging out with everyone, doing the same ol’ things.  We went to Portland as planned and did stay with Keston and Ody, except Sidney and Dan ran away to Linfield cause they are weak (allergic to cats).  Whatever, just extra driving for them.  Yusuke became good friends with the cat.  I named the cat Henry, since it had no name.  I dunno if it’ll stick w/o my presence, though.

Portland was Portland.  I never really understood why people think it’s so great.  I guess if you’re not raised amongst the hippies you think seeing hippy people and hippy stores is really novel and awesome… maybe?  I dunno.  Regardless, stores and just stores to me, filled with piles of stuff I don’t want.  I bought volumes 3 and 4 of Otherland used from Powell’s, though, for Sidney and Lauren.  The rest of the time I spent walking around, which I found quite pleasant because the weather and company were so good.

School’s out for the Central peeps in 2 weeks, so then I’ll have to go home I suppose, maybe even before.  Otherwise the plan is to continue hanging out while I can before everyone goes to their preferred countries.  Tonight we’re going to play basketball.

There’s this new thing called WolframAlpha.  It looks cool to me.  If I had headphones I would have learned all about it by now and could recommend better how to use it, but I think it has a variety of uses for everyone and that you all should play around with it yourself and see what you come up with.  It’s good if you have math homework for sure, and if you wanna do financial analysis, or if you just curious about some statistics but you don’t know where you’d find them.  Like, finding out the number of people with your name… or the population of females in your area.  I dunno, it’s new and probably will ever grow, but I plan to keep an eye on it.  Yeah, it’s definitely cool.

K, I’m gonna go play with it some more.  TTFN, folks.
