I had the good fortune of bumping into iole200 just after I got off the bus, and was talked into paying a visit to lambdacalculus's house, since she was heading there to help make and eat dinner and watch yesterday's episode of "24". So I tagged along and actually managed to understand much of the "24" despite not being too familiar with this season's backstory. After that we watched a few episodes of "Arrested Development", which is also a pretty fucking brilliant show. I've mostly been out of the television loop since about sophomore year; it's good to know people are still making good new shows.
All this was on the amazing new projector device that tom and mike bought. Except for the weird effect of occasionally being able to catch just one RGB channel mid-eye-saccade, it was very nice watching everything bigger than life on the wall. It was something like 8' along the diagonal of the image.
Earlier today I had an advisor meeting, which went pretty well. In retrospect, this was probably due to me having results. In turn, careful thought suggests to me that this was because I did work during the last two weeks. I should be taking notes on this or something, I think. I don't want to jump the gun, but there may be some kind of causal relationship here.
