Woo. Long day.

Je la 11a antaŭtagmeze: alia leciono kun Diana, Frank, kaj la infanino de Diana, Lena. Tiu lasta tre dolĉas! Disputis kun Diana pri alielsimo iomete. La tabelvortoj ŝajnas iomete baze malfacilaj. Ni komparis ĉi tiu/tiu kun la japana この/その kaj tiu/tio kun この/これ. Pruntis Vojaĝo en Esperanto-Lando kaj Esperanto for Beginners al Frank. Mi esperas ke li ĝuos ilin.

Had a short-notice meeting with Frank, since he was back in town. Got a few helpful nuggets of advice.

Got lunch at BM. Read much more of Foucault's Pendulum. Practically done now, like thirty pages left. Quite a good book. Adam called up, coordinated stuff with tom7 and plans were arranged for CostCo trip and watching the Animatrix over at tom's place. Got a couple small items at CC. The animatrix shorts totally rock, visually, all nine of them in their own way, and even the Matrix universe's wanky-philosophy seems a little more palatable to me after seeing the commentary for a couple of them.

Slept in quite late.
Got lunch at the O. Must remember that it's really only the all-beef sausage that's good there.
Finished "Foucault's Pendulum". Ending a tad depressing, but appropriate.
Ran into a thoroughly de-hair-ified (both beard and a good deal of cranial hair cut off) sk4p yesterday, who was hacking conlangily on his language "Meth". Sadly he seems to have taken down the web page for it. But I learned that a conspiracy of metafont, GNU autotrace, and pfaedit can produce nice TTF/Type 1 results.
