Found out Noam has a neat paper over here about the combinatorics of graphs and linear lambda-terms.

Been watching more let's-plays for the Witness. For all of the reviews that complain about it being "just a bunch of puzzles whose reward is only more puzzles", I can't help but remember that there are plenty of games like that. They're... called puzzle games, aren't they? The Witness's contribution (which I think is considerable) is simply the structure of the puzzles themselves, the same way, say, Bach music's contribution is the structure of the notes themselves. Somehow watching someone else play it is giving me about as much aesthetic pleasure as I think I'd get playing it myself.

Did beginning-of-month chore of balancing checkbook. Now that rent is automatically deducted from bank account (along with all other bills) the beginning-of-month ritual feels very sparse.

Discovered gooey butter cake not so great after refrigeration.

Made this gooey butter cake recipe found on the internet, substituted 2c flour 1.5c sugar 1tsp baking powder for the box cake mix. Turned out not quite the same as the cake we got at Georgia's, but real good anyhow.

Super cranky this morning because a pair of construction vehicles were making construction sounds and a lot of beep-beep-I'm-backing-up-beeps starting at 3:30am and going until at least 4:30 last night (probably snow removal) and therefore didn't sleep much. However, I guess spending most of yesterday napping still helped out, since I'm getting off to a moderately productive start this morning.

Randomly came across this album of electronic music by former RHCP guitarist John Frusciante and it sounds like a love letter to 90s acid house and I'm kind of digging it. Even though I was never particularly into early acid house.
