FontBlog: Thinking about how to do "Mendota" again. Got a few letters up from scratch. Bowl of the "a" is still a little gimpy, but I'm optimistic about this direction.

Wrote some eta-expansion code. Discovered that I can't expand all eta-contracts without going to much greater effort, but I think the version I coded will be enough to cover the amount by which twelf falls short of maintaining eta-longness itself.

Hung out with Drew Hoskins a bit today, had some dinner at Uncle Sam's with him. He was an undergrad in the same class as me at CMU. I hadn't seen him for a couple years. He's been working at Microsoft in the compilers group, apparently, having fun there, keeping busy. His occasion for being in pittsburgh is some sort of national bridge tournament.

I love the internet, and Carolyn Berk, the bestest celebrity imaginary girlfriend since Kathleen Hanna. I'm surprised in hindsight I left off "Seven Years" from my gibbering-fanboy-list there. The alternation between Bm and A/C# in the chorus of it is fucking gorgeous.
