Second season of arrested development: OMG I LOVE ANN!!!!!!1111
The dog lying on the bright red doghouse when George Michael was schlumping along all depressed about Ann dumping him was absolutely priceless. I think it would have been better if they hadn't given a zillion other characters their Charlie Brown moment as well, but whatever. Brilliant episode.
Research-wise, I am somewhat frustrated at the princeton LF suite, since it really ought to be a good test case for my code, except that it uses constraint domains, which I don't know how to handle.
I am really quite addicted to the Wikipedia pages on "physics-flavored" math, by which I mean differential topology and geometry and analysis and stuff. I blame John Baez.
A busy day of trying to see people. Hung out with Don since he was in town, (and also with non-out-of-towners Heather, Tom, Neal, and William), saw Pete, and a bunch of old lounge rats. Conclusions: (1) I like my friends a lot, old and new (2) Carnival is interesting for a little while, but then it's hot and bright and people.
