As of last night, I am now engaged.

That is all.

10:06 pm: thanksgiving poll
When/where are everyone's plans for the thanksgiving break? I'd like to propose some sort of pre-break geek night but that depends on everyone's plans. So spill, what're you gonna be doing next week?

Edit: whoops, this is for geeken_nacht. Reposting shortly...

02:35 pm: Holiday season with Klein Four
For foxfirefey, who found the first Klein Four video, Finite Simple Group (of Order Two). They have returned to the stairwell stage to start off the Christmas season with their unique interpretation of Twelve days of Christmas. No math in this one, but quite entertaining anyway. They also have an ad for their album, Musical Fruitcake. I am very tempted....

04:33 am: I have seen the future
Okay, even though I'm rather broke at the moment, I was poking around on thinkgeek anyway tonight and stumbled upon something rather eerie that I feel the need to share: my action figure alterego.

03:23 pm: I'm a winner!
I won a drawing at the health fair last week, and I picked up my winnings earlier today. Turns out I got a whole box of random stuff:

09:10 am: Dancing queen
Because I obviously haven't been doing enough dancing, I found another place to go:

Argentine tango and other latin dances, Monday nights (tonight!) at the Attic, 314 2nd St. Starting at 6:45pm.

This one's free, and I think it runs for a couple hours. About an hour of tango and an hour of other stuff. So I'm checking it out tonight, if anyone else wants to join me.

10:59 pm: Kari and Grant are awesome
I just got back from a presentation with Kari and Grant from Mythbusters. They did a blooper reel with the stuff that doesn't make it past the censors, and then did an interview and had questions from the audience. Afterwards, they did pictures and booksignings (and I was actually there selling books. I got paid to be there). I got a chance to meet them briefly once everyone left, and got pictures with them. They were really nice, and love our window cows (a myth the ASUI reps were proud to bust just before the show). Unfortunately my camera was dumb and the pics came out all blurry. But it was still a lot of fun.

11:05 am: And the results are in...
I passed! I dropped by the psych dept today, did a bit of paperwork, turned in my office keys (and swiped my toaster back from the grad office), and now I'm all done. The official piece of paper will arrive in a few weeks. No more school. I'm not sure exactly what to do now, but I suppose I need to ramp up my search for gainful employment.

08:02 pm: HF Exam, Part 2
I took the second part of my master's exam this morning, and just got the results back. Surprisingly enough, I actually passed (I wasn't sure, and it was pretty borderline, but I made it). I have to schedule part 3 for next week. But this was the part I was most concerned about, and somehow I pulled it off. :)

02:20 pm: my baby's back!
I was running a little late heading in to campus this morning, but that turned out to be a good thing. Around 10:30 I got a visit from the DHL guy, delivering my laptop! Just in time to pop the hard drive and extra RAM back into it and take it in to campus.

The note they included says that I now have a new motherboard, heat sink, and a new DVD player for my laptop. So now my laptop is working nicely, and I'm happy again. I even got it back a couple days earlier than I expected.
