Wrote lots of slides. Still need to finish up in the morning.

Went into squill to get dinner and grocery things. Ran into fizzbang and theadana and drspooky, and went over and visited their house and listened to laura say all sorts of cool things about infant language acquisition. She also loaned me Pratchett's "The Last Hero" which I read some of in cdinwood's dorm room a couple years ago, but never finished.

Discovered that the nice DDR pads got returned to their rightful owner, i.e. arilinn. Tried playing on the cheap pads that norm left behind. Totally unplayably unbearably awful. Felt like trying to play on an out-of-tune piano. Must... buy more... ludicrous... consumer items...

Okay, so now japanese is infecting my dreams. Is there even an
おおさか大学?
I kept hearing that phrase over and over in the dream.

Ugh. Now for day of crazy busyness.

Printing slides now, hooray. I am glad my estimate of how long it would take me to write the remaining slides was more or less accurate.

Really dead tired right now, though. Damn mosquito in my room waking and keeping me up at 4am.

Oh, wow, Worst. Talk. Everr.

Got a lot of helpful comments, anyway. Mostly of the form "it would be good if you did X totally different", but still.
