Things going on lately that aren't math:
Last night went to "Brooklyn Boulders" with aleffert, which was interesting. The climbing area was quite big but a bit crowded, and my shoes felt painfully tight. Dunno if my feet have swole up in the last couple years since last I climbed, or just my tolerance for footsqueezing has gone down, or if the rubber shrinks with time, or what. I grumped out of climbing very much, but I discovered they had a slackline which turned out to be fascinating. By the end of the evening I was able to take about two steps before falling off, at a rate of one out of every couple dozen attempts, which felt like great success.

Tonight had dinner with K at kesté down on Bleecker. Really tasty pizza (we split a Prosciutto) and an amazing panna cotta with blueberry sauce.

I wish you had intentionally misspelled it as sprots, but now I see that it was an honest mistaek.

Oh, it was intentional. K has a friend that drew a comic that had a doofy looking guy with a baseball cap with SPROTS written on it, so it became kind of a synonym for dresden codak's "sportball".

oh, well, you had no other posts tagged sprots, so that's why I thought it was an honest mistake. You should write about sprots more often.

Apropos of nothing, Zoe just pointed at my LJ user icon and said "Mama!" Your fontified version of me is accurate enough that a baby can recognize it as me!

(Let's ignore for now that last week she thought Andy Warhol's Marilyn Monroe was me, too.)

Your slackline success is impressive. I've progressed to the point of I don't instantly fall off. It takes several seconds. Or at least if feels like several.

Yeah well I think that's pretty comparable, actually. My "taking steps" isn't a stable process so much as the several seconds during which I don't instantly fall off, and also desperately shuffle forwards.
