I went to half-price thinking I would get some substantial dinner at F&F, but it was too crowded so everyone went to Joe Mama's, none of whose food I particularly like, so I just got a coke and scribbled on a napkin a lot.

My favorite moment of the evening was plopping down on the porch steps of some house down by (some variety of?) neville that kfoss was fetching her friends from, listening to kelly and erika b having some serious discussion of which I actually heard almost no content, but mostly just the tone of their voices, which was probably just as well, and basically sitting there and loving the perfect temperature and staring at the moon and not worrying about much.

During the evening did a bunch of twelf-proof hacking. Fun fun.

I got barendregt, my other computer, back from sony. The note included with it made it look like they actually diddled around with the innards some, so I'm somewhat more reassured that it might really be fixed now. But now I own two working computers, which is weird. I haven't had that since like undergrad. I should install linux on one of 'em or something.

Last Monday I started messing around with
Am E7 F      C  Am E7  F         C
Am E7 F      C  Am E7  F        [C   C7]
F  Fm C      C  E7 E7  Am        A7
Dm G [C G/B] Am Bo Bo [E7 ?/F#] [?/G E7/G#]

so today I tried recording it:
http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~jcreed/music/jcreed%20-%20Five%20Hours%20and%20a%20Rain%20Cloud.mp3

This was at the piano in the Wm. Pitt Union; you can hear some people talking and even clapping at the very end. I like how that makes it sound like a real live concert recording or something.

For bonus points, guess the popular mid-nineties single that has the same basic 4-chord progression, which I only noticed after I had written down the whole song.
