For your procrastinating pleasure
I'm supposed to be writing a paper right now. I thought grad school would be different from undergrad; I thought I'd be serious and focused and driven. Not that I was a complete slacker in my undergraduate years--I did my homework (generally), attended classes (as much as your average student does), and did not only graduate by the skin of my teeth.
Never-the-less, the procrastination has continued. The only difference is that now I'm usually a little more interested in what I'm supposed to be working hard on, so when I actually get to it, it's an hour or two before I find myself "taking a break".
In any event, here are a couple of things for your amusement from my "break":
1) I heard an interesting story on Studio 360 tonight about a guy who runs a talk show in the Halo 2 online environment. Yeah, I had the same reaction. Check it out here.
2) Apparently soccer fans aren't the only crazy ones. Sports, sports, sports.
Well, that's all for now. I'd better get back to being studious.
Hope the week goes well, people!

" the skin of my teeth"
What exactly is the skin of my teeth? The thin-ish enamel part? I've always wondered about that saying...

You know I've never really figured it out myself. And if your teeth have all fallen out, what do you barely escape by? Hmmm. Things to ponder the next time I'm not working... ;)

Keep me updated on your findings!
We have a name for the not-so-clean-tooth-feel (imagine an after coke experience), that we call "furry-teeth". Ick.

BTW- I like your new design and the chance to leave comments!

I'll be in SoCal for Baja this year. Hopefully we'll meet before I head out to SoDak. YEAH
