halloween: a review

i’m having trouble processing that it was only last weekend (thursday-sunday) that i was in washington dc. it feels like weeks ago. i never mentioned that on the way back from dc, i rode with jane and alexa to jane’s…

maybe you were thinking about changing the title of your car over to someone? but you don’t know any notary publics. well i say you should drop alice of hillsborough a line. but you wouldn’t want to choose a notary…

i solved the negative expenses problem. again.

looking back i can see this has plagued me before: in january when i first identified the problem, in february when i explained in some detail what the heck i mean by a negative expense, and most recently in may…

oh dear. i’m in 201. research methods.

i woke up at 8am. dog seems to be barking somewhere (next door?) every morning. non stop. so i got 6hrs, but well, i’ve done pretty bad maintaining any sort of sleep schedule this semester. maybe it’s this 9:30am class.…

what does roaming mean?

sprintpcs used to have three cellphone plans: local, regional, and national. pour moi, local included the piedmont chunk of north cackalacky. regional included all of NC and SC. and national meant what national still means. a cheap local plan made…

one day i pray i will sleep

lunch: crawfish etouffee with fried crawfish tails at mike anderson’s on bourbon street dinner: potato gnocchi, alaskan cod with sunchoke puree and chanterelles, guava sorbet at lilette one word: full. leaving for airport: 4 hours.

evening stupendously great

4:30am, (saturday) wake up and catch a taxi to the louis armstrong new orleans international airport with phill. 11:30am, arrive at rdu. jane picks me up, and we head off to procure the fixings for a birthday feast of lasagna…

one class down

i am done with my final presentation for virtual communities. i did a survey of the tribe.net social networking service. jean did friendster, something that has been very popular this semester. the way blogging was last semester. like so many…

smart cars

i wonder if it would be possible to import one of these. so quirky and yet, so beautiful. apparently they won’t be available in the US until 2006 when they roll out an SUV model *gag*. i didn’t realize there…
