They may not be re-filling my position. My boss is interviewing for a new jorb on Monday. People in other areas are slowly becoming horrified as they realize I won't be around.

Even though it's work, I'm gone soon, so I'll post it in public.

I might go to a bar on Friday and watch the Greece vs Germany match because why not? It's at 1:45 local time and I have some vacation to burn. I'm not a huge fan of cricket, but it's all good fun. Besides, Heidegger vs Socrates!

I was stupid and couldn't type right, apparently. I accidentally did my change of address request wrong with the post office and said I was moving into 2W instead of 1W. I sent in a correction today.

So I picked up an edition of Sigrid Undset's Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy recently because it is awesome. Apparently she also wrote a decent tetralogy called The Master of Hestviken and the first volume, The Axe, was available fairly cheap (now only a penny!), so I picked it up, too.

Ah, those magical words.

Anyway: i've become one of those people. I think I'm finally turning into one of those elitist liberals that everybody, including myself, hates.

Note: elitist liberal, not liberal elite.

On Sunday, I agreed to play War of the Ring this evening, but I decided to opt out tonight. I went to a dinner party on Friday, went out on Saturday, went to a chess tournament Sunday, and played a chess match last night. I really need to be home a little bit. Fortunately, they easily found a fourth to replace me.
