so apparently they're going to roast me at my going-away party. i don't know if i'm supposed to have a couple minutes to speak, too, so i'll try to think of some material just in case. apparently it was a tradition at bell labs to roast people who were leaving, and my boss liked that while she was there, so she's trying to create that tradition here. I'm fine with that.


yesterday was a long day because i stayed in until 6 to finish some crap up and then went to the gym. I did a quick workout and went home, but it was nearly 9 when i got there - the bus took forever to get to the gym (in retrospect, should've done the train - there's a small window where it's a tossup between them depending on traffic, but i was past that). anyway, i didn't pack my belt because i was planning on doing light squats - i didn't feel up to a planned 385x3x5 today - but forgot that i might have wanted the belt for deadlifts. well, whatevs. i just did pullups instead.

Will I have time for philosophy while I am back in school? I don't now.

Today: chess at lunch. It will be awesome.

Tonight: lots of packing. I need rope for the truck. Or ratchet straps, but rope is cheaper.

How very liberal of them. by dmg (4.00 / 2) #1 Thu Aug 09, 2012 at 11:35:53 AM EST
Or perhaps a roast doesn't have the same meaning over there?

I'm not sure what meaning it has over there by gzt (2.00 / 0) #2 Thu Aug 09, 2012 at 11:54:26 AM EST
but here it means something like this: http://filmgordon.wordpress.com/2008/07/22/classic-comedy-the-richard-pryor-roast-1977/

but probably less profane unless it's after hours.

Let them go through with the whole thing, then stand up and say:
