The weather this morning had a strange effect on me. It was humid, quiet, and very gray. I felt like I was only watching myself walking down the street, catching the bus, eating lunch. Eventually I snapped out of it.

kaustuv mentioning Wheelock's inspired me to take another crack at working through some of it and actually doing the exercises instead of my usual lazy skimming. It still feels like the hardest part is just internalizing all these damn inflection tables. Gradually getting better, though.

Went to a 4th BBQ hosted by some guy whose name I forget, apparently kfc's boyfriend. It was pretty fun. madmadammim was good at grabbing the spotlight, and we all played some Eat Poop You Cat and listened to "Capitol Steps" after the rain forced the party indoors. Remember: teaching basic literacy to robots on fire is hard. Now off to more events.
