What is the Singularity, you ask? This is a great interpretation:


Also: There's lots to learn about the human species at 2am on Stop Day Eve (school's out!). We were approached by: 1) a herd of drunks chanting together, 2) a staggering girl who had difficulty expressing that she wanted a light, 3) a young fella wearing a mandolin and a banjo who played Leonard Cohen and Beatles and Dylan for a solid 30 minutes accompanied by harmonica, and 4) a thousand young'uns dressed in their finest, slightly askew, and inappropriate shoes.

Humid outside. The Moon is about full. Only five days until the big presentation re: keeping my job. The finger is almost fully healed, so I've been able to do my pull-ups and push-ups without much pain, though typing is still achey. Got to meet a fellow author from Ruins Extraterrestrial, along with our edior.

Hope you're doing well. Live long and transhuminate.

Chris

Yay for healing fingers!

Hope you had a buck to tip or two to tip number three?

Yup, I gave him a few bucks, even though he said he was just playing for the music, not tips.

Wow, and here I always thought it was supposed to be drummers who weren't very smart.

Hmph. I use dumb-bells to get a fuller range of motion, but after being a bit out of commission, I'm only doing about 40/day right now. Still can't manage more than 5 pull-ups in a row without the finger starting to ache; a month ago, I was up to 3 sets of 15 in a row - full extension, from dangling to chin above the bar!

I bet you are; sounds un-fun.

Sure, teachers are invited! It's especially entertaining when a student sees me and straightens his or her outfit in an attempt to look respectable.

Thanks!

Good luck with the keeping your job bit, unless I'm misreading that. This year sucks bigtime. We're still fairly certain we get to keep our jobs, but we don't know how much we'll be paid. Weee!
