Teh Wife was sick yesterday, but we got to watch Star Trek and Fringe, so it wasn't all bad. Interesting how, like, two of the first five episodes of Star Trek are about people acquiring great power and then being unable to live with normal human society. I hope she has recovered today and that I did not catch her illness.
ATTN: PEOPLE OF EARTH INFIDELS. If you are not already reading The Worm Ouroboros, I highly recommend that you do. Gorice is waiting. Remember, kids: any book that starts with somebody reading Njal's Saga must be good. Science tells us so.
ATTN: WIFE OF EARTH INFIDEL: According to TheophileEscargot, the Phantom Menace guy did a review of Avatar. Read his diary for details. I will either watch it with you or you will watch it while convalescing or something. I've got to do my stats homework tomorrow night, though.
R S Thomas: I ran into him on my bookshelf last night.
Minitab: I considered buying Minitab because my stats class uses it and I don't want to be married to the university computer lab, it would possibly be covered by tuition reimbursement, but I said shuck that jive when I saw the price. It looks like I'm using 30-day trials and the computer labs to get through this. Whatevs. It's a 10 minute walk from work, less if I hitch a bus ride, and it's right on the train to go home. It's not that bad.
AAH. Okay, so I presented something to some chief blah blah blah officer or other a few months ago, it was pretty informal, I just had a couple exhibits, some short text in an e-mail, and then I had a meeting to discuss and go over the exhibits - verbal report in a lot of detail. Now, as part of auditing the accomplishment of our goals, some bozo somewhere is like, "Hey, we want proof you guys did this thing, send us the study." So I'm quickly dashing out that stuff as, like, a formal report. Blah blah blah. A bunch of the details, though, are documented in hand-written meeting notes I have lying around somewhere. Like, is this really 2007 data, or was it July 07 to June 08? My notes have some nice digressions, given what time I was doing this: doodles of men in morning attire and notes about procurement and costs for such items, notes about how much I'm going to lift, little to-do lists, snatches of poems, etc.
