Went with Sumana to see a speech by Steven Pinker, author of The Language Instinct. It was pretty interesting; assuming one limits the universe of discourse to hour-long speeches about the past tense, it was one of the most interesting speeches one could possibly make. However, more interesting and fun was hanging out in a college cafe with Sumana, Adam Parrish, and Adam's friend Josh. I had more mediocre tiramisu. This is MEDIOCRE TIRAMISU WATCH, day 1,306! America held hostage... by mediocre tiramisu!

Playing Illuminati tonight with Jason and Manoj. Haven't done that for quite a while. I need to practice, as I'll probably be playing a lot of Illuminati next week with Susanna.

Sumana finds amusement in my pronunciation of the words "dinosaur", "whale", and "vegetable", so today I made some ASCII drawings of each to cheer her up:

Manoj won the Illuminati game, despite the fact that I had by far
the best set of cards. Oh well. This breaks my streak of about 10
wins in at-work Illuminati games.
Due to various innovations I have developed, chief among them being
tying the floss to the little plastic floss threader, I've been able
to get my nightly flossing time down from 15 minutes to 4 minutes.
This makes my daily tooth care routine much less onerous.

Pete Peterson II has oggs
from a live performance of Last Transmission From Starbase XY003.
I haven't listened to them yet, as I don't have an OGG player set up,
but hey, it's Starbase XY003, so how can you go wrong? By
not listening to it, that's how!
Update: There are MP3s as well.
