The election will be exciting, though unskewedpolls.com has it being a landslide for Romney. That would be boring. I'm quite curious how the local congressional election will work out. This is the guy running: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/21/steve-king-immigrants-dogs_n_1998007.html I haven't seen a new poll since the end of September, when there were like 4. No indication of what is going to happen. As I'm sure I've remarked earlier, though I would probably identify with political solutions further "left" than the political consensus in America, I don't particularly mind Republicans per se if they get things done, but this man ought to be unelectable. Much like Bachmann. http://www.salon.com/2012/10/23/steve_king_didnt_build_that/
Since it will be consistently cold, I think it may be time to put up the plastic on the windows. Sigh.
I have another theory test on Friday. This should not be too bad. I am still undecided about what elective to take next semester. Given how much I hate methods, I've been idly looking at the math and CS departments to see what their co-major PhD thing is like - that's one way to get out of doing the PhD-level Methods in statistics, see. But the CS seems to require too much extraneous CS and the math requires too much extraneous math, so, nuts to that.
Still idly doing Esperanto on my commute.

There are plenty of reports like this: http://www.casl.umd.edu/node/919 and http://www.casl.umd.edu/sites/default/files/Nielson08_RosettaStoneEval.pdf
We're thinking of giving up on Fringe. We've been watching Elementary because of a dedication to Holmesiana - it's not spectacular.
