Oh, Friendster.
(the more funny bit)

Dreams involving lmarsh in spaaaaaaace. At least I think so. There was an elevator which took hours to go up three floors, with a different set of people in it. Then some sort of cheesy brochure-saturated presentation.

Demoralizing things:
* Going into advisor meeting thinking ho-hum, nothing to report, just hacking on proofs still, and having a gaping-sucking-wound counterexample open up in proofs that undermines absolutely everything when Frank points out a weirdness with unification.
* Having writing critiqued by people who certainly read enough to be competent critics, even though I tried really hard not to care too much, because, well, I'm not and not aiming to be a professional writer or anything like that. Which is different from not caring at all.

Antidemoralizing things:
* Finding out that there may be a simple fix, although it sacrifices some elision opportunities I would have like to have had.
* Realizing that at least I'm not writing a novel's worth of fan fiction.

Feeling a little feverish and a lot tired. About 1k behind schedule on the WriMo now, at 10752. Will try to catch up tomorrow.

Frank didn't immediately find any problems with the naive fix to the problem, so that's an unbad sign for now.
