07/07/2007: "Addendum"Listening to: Rainer Maria - Long Knives Drawn
Current mood: non-specific
So, I feel it necessary to point out that the previous post was brought to you almost entirely by blood loss. I actually have a picture of my horrible wound that I considered posting on here, but my better judgment prevailed and I decided not to. Oh, I'm not weird or nothin', I just took a picture because I was waiting for the edges of the cut to dry off enough for me to apply a new bandage. Well, maybe that's a little weird, but there's a part of me that found the whole thing rather novel.
Anyway, wounds aside, I'm not really sure what I have to post about. All I know is that I've been meaning to for several days now. And I was kind of hoping that once I started typing the reason for posting would come back to me, but that doesn't actually seem to be the case. I guess I'll just babble incoherently for awhile.
So, it's July apparently. I'm not really sure how that happened. It's still sometime in late April as far as my internal clock is telling me. I'm really hoping that this isn't the normal pace of time perception for me from here on out. I'm starting to think that I really need A. Discernible seasons and B. Summers off. Which means it's probably time to start doing a little more in the way of grad school shopping.
Umm... let's see. You may have heard me at some point calling myself a nerd. Well, we went to an author reading/signing thing by Jeff VanderMeer (who wrote some somewhat interesting sounding books which I have not read) up at Mysterious Galaxy the other day and... let me just say, compared to most of the people there I am Hipster McCoolguy. It was like, beards, ponytails, glasses, and tech company t-shirts as far as the eye could see. Nothing wrong with those guys, but ending up in a crowd of them really does wonders for resetting where you rate yourself on the nerd scale.
Well, anyway, I'm off to play Pokemon then.

Ha! we were both amazed by the array of nerds available for viewing at the book signing.
