Planned to go home at 5:30 when office hours were over.
Got into a proof-hacking groove around 5:15, which didn't end until about 6:00. Decided to go home then. However, talked with Marty Zinkevich for a while, bumped into James Hendricks on the Wean-Newell-Simon bridge, got to talking about grad school, life, the universe, etc., went over to Sam's around 8, got some dinner, chatted some more until about 11 (FPGAs, incompleteness theorems, various who's-dating-whom-and-why-the-hell-are-they gossip) at which point I finally decided to go home. Then I ran into cdinwood and bowen heading the other direction towards the bus stop planning on going to the shadyside geagle for some reason, and they insisted I come along. Plans shifted towards Ritter's at some point, and I enjoyed tasty pancakes. Now I am, at last, at home, and a bit tired. But hey, it's technically November 1st! I should get down to NaNoWriMo writing.

NaNoWriWo started, woo. Wrote 400 words or so last night between 1:30 and 2, up to about 1000 now. Still need another 700 to meet quota for today.

Quantity: 1823 words. Quality: well, the whole point of the exercise is quantity over quality, isn't it? All these people with 8,000+ words after just one day kind of scare me.

Had dinner at Sam's with pete. It was fun to talk about random tech-y kind of things. I should find some time to learn more about hardware, but probably not very soon.
