I took an existing calendar and altered it to fit my whims. I don't feel like working much today. I have class until 8:30.

Have chess today against $UNIVERSITY on the northside. It's a bit of a trek, but I'm most worried about getting back. I'll see if the wifing unit can pick me up after, I might have to give a ride to some others on the way back, too.

All right, so I finally, after several years of knowing about it, sent something off to the State of $CORN_STATE to get them to send me an old "last paycheck" I neglected to pick up one summer. It's a couple hundred dollars. Every little bit helps.

So I have an appointment with the liver specialist next week and they need to take blood out of me now. Three months ago, my liver enzymes were normal, and if they're normal again, we'll just call it good and forget the whole thing. If they aren't, the liver specialist will devise cruel and arcane tortures for me.

...I'm still not quite sure what the Occupy Wall Street people are hoping to accomplish. All I know is that they're sans culottes. Still, I support the idea that something isn't going right, something should be done, and nothing has been done. Stiglitz is right that Wall Street has found a way to "socialize losses and privatize" gain, and that's just wrong.
