Actually, I'm lying. I could've walked two blocks and taken a north-south bus that drops me off 4 blocks from home. I wasn't sure the bus ran like that and I thought the train was a better bet, time-wise. I think I was right about that, too.
The extra time allowed to finish both the sudoku and the crossword. After finishing the crossword, I got to watch the lady in front of me start the crossword. Terribly exciting. Actually, it was mildly interesting: she had a different strategy, in that she filled out the top corner first. I filled it in last because the options in it were far too open, so I needed to nail some other things down a little first.
Anyway. I'll try Olympic-style high-bar squatting today and see if that doesn't aggravate my elbow. I'll report back.
After I finished my crossword, I poked around Lost in the Cosmos a little. Some of the references are a little dated, but still mostly functional.
The Exile, mildly interesting. Americans trolling Russia from the late 90s until recently.
A student at a university I went to a while ago recently got arrested for being loud in the library or something. On the one hand, the kid is apparently somewhat douchetastic and doesn't respond well to authority. On the other, it should take more than that to be arrested in the library and it just looks like a terrible case of racial profiling. But, really, when library staff and then a police officer tell you repeatedly to leave a building, it's probably a good idea to do so. The problem is probably at the level of library staff.
