Chatted with papertygre over "coffee", in that it was in a coffeeshop, but only tea and hot chocolate were consumed. I think I have, unsurprisingly, a pretty damn hard time dealing with ideas that feel acutely foreign to my worldview. Though, upon some reflection, the ideas discussed may not be so genuinely foreign. Hard to tease things apart. I definitely have a pretty well-soaked-in learned reaction unfavorable to anything that even smells like astrology and superstition. It may have overstepped its rightful bounds. I need to finish this Lakoff book -- from a skim of the remainder it looks like it will provide me with some further tools to articulate what the hell I mean.
Went to bob's video game StuCo, which was really funny.
