Dinked around with svn some more today, have a slightly more felicitous setup. Had to use svndumpfilter to back out a stupid mistake, but it wasn't too hard to use. Made a pass over a paper by fancybred. Interesting stuff.

Hung out with groen, relaxatorium, and mellowcupcake for a bit, got tasty half-price. A conversation structured around people competing to come up with funny/clever/etc. band names is fun.

fun little guitar thing. I like the double-struck E in the Dadd4,9.

Last night as I was about to brush my teeth, the faucet made a k-chnk sound, and the cold water stopped coming out very much. Hot water still fine. This morning, the toilet is full of weird light-greenish-blue stuff, and little flecks of it come out of the shower. The other bathroom in the house seems ok. Any ideas what the hell is going on? Cyanobacteria? Oxidized copper? Does it have anything to do with the construction outside our front door mucking with pipes 'n' stuff? I am at a loss?

Had lunch with S at Mineo's, whom I haven't seen in like a year. I thought she'd left pittsburgh for some reason, but she hadn't. Good times!

Thanks to the internet, I have discovered how to get resolutions passed in the idaho state house of representatives. How you do it is you include the following phrase:
WHEREAS, any members of the House of Representatives or the Senate of the Legislature of the State of Idaho who choose to vote "Nay" on this concurrent resolution are "FREAKIN' IDIOTS!"


A plumber came and loorked at our water and said it was just calcium build-up stirred up by fluctuating water pressure from the construction. After running the shower for a little while it seemed mostly clean, so I took a shower at least. I'm not eager to drink any of the water for a while, but whatever.
