Got all my bookshelves and books and kitchen stuff over. Evening plans include rounding up the last of K's stuff from her place, maybe dinner with her folks, trying to figure out if we can manage my dresser or not.

First serious day of moving shit into the new apartment. K got ahold of her uncle's van, moved her big mattress and a bunch of boxes of her stuff in two trips between queens and brooklyn during which we narrowly missed a tremendous post-accident clusterfuck of traffic on the BQE by taking eastern parkway through East New York and stuff.

Did a few trips from my apartment after that, got some dinner at a middle-eastern place in the new neighborhood. Fussed a bit wondering how to get my beast of an air conditioner down from above an eight-foot false ceilingway. Still not sure what to do about that. It took enlisting a neighbor's help to get it up in the first place

Apparently there's some exciting stuff happening over in the world of quantum algorithms: here's a blog post about some separations between classical and quantum versions of the same algorithm (subject to some constraints about totality I don't fully get yet) that are larger than previously achieved, and larger than certain (now falsified) conjectures would have allowed for.

Did an "escape the room" thing with a few people from work that are actually in the city here. Was real fun, we almost escaped. A main thing we were missing was a clue that was revealed only if you disassembled a certain chair.

I kept noodling with http://jcreed.org/js/urrakeny/ for a while but I just couldn't seem to get the random map generation to work in such a way that the game is actually fun. Whenever the map is possible to complete, it is almost trivially easy to complete by greedy-algorithm random clicking on adjacent territories. Oh well.

Had some ethiopian takeout and saw "Inside Out". Really cute movie.

Caught the first part of Jason Ganetsky discussing the Simons's "making a fast curry" paper at the "papers we love" meetup. Fun stuff.

More "helping K pack" which consisted mostly of just hanging out and keeping her company. She got some good progress done packing/sorting through/throwing away clothes.
