home's been aight

I'm feeling MUCH better. At this point I have a slight cough and that's about it.

Saw my mom's family yesterday and my dad's (really just my cousin Jake) today. It was nice to see everyone but still feels a little shallow since it's that whole once-a-year thing.

I'm meeting with Art Doler for breakfast. Haven't seen him since we graduated so that should be FUN FUN FUN!!!

The one and only... cooke

I knew I was going to have to puke

Started coughing yesterday and didn't quite feel right after dinner last night. Came home where I went to bed and slept like SHIT, only to wake up very achey and in much worse condition. Didn't feel like eating anything (didn't have much in the house anyway) but for some reason a tomato sounded good. I ate most of one and a few Goldfish crackers. Couple hours later I decide to make some chicken noodle soup and BAM!!! Threw up in the bathtub. Felt sooooooooo much better. Now I just need to eat something and get rid of the itchy throat and I'll be good to go.

There are others you know

That's right. There are other mathematicians that are worth reading about. I'm tired of all the book reviews that deal with the popular Alan Turing (NYT) or John Nash and don't branch out to other entertaining geniuses. Hell, Paul Erdos was much more entertaining to read about in The Man Who Loved Only Numbers. As was Ramanujan in The Man Who Knew Infinity. All I'm saying is that there are many more marketable mathematicians to spruce up the review columns than the reviewers let on.

I want one

LaCie Carte Orange is a killer USB 2.0 portable hard drive. 8GB - seems pretty small. Well, this badass is the size of a credit card. Yeah, that's right... stick it in your wallet. It's less than 1/4" thick. Freaking amazing. And for $150 (8GB. 4GB is $100) this thing is hella affordable. Now to get one!

And... I decided to get one. Should be here in a few days!

a great concert tonight

Morning Wood opened up for The Bravery at the Crystal Ballroom. I had seen The Bravery a few months ago and they put on another fantastic performance. Morning Wood, also from NYC, had a great sound and a fun stage performance. And...

Busy and not interesting

has been my life the last few days.
I worked most of the weekend and a long day today. Alas, I need the $$$ so it's all good. Tomorrow I'll go see The Bravery with Bobby and Jessica Iovanella, that friend from high school I was talking about. I never did write about that night. Needless to say it was great.

By the way, check out She Wants Revenge. You won't regret it.

The Rich and Fake

Saw today that Forbes has the Fictional 15 Richest characters in the world.
I had heard of a class and a few books on this subject. It'd be interesting to do an analysis of the Fictional 15 to see if they could actually be as rich as they are made out to be. And are there other extrememly rich fictional characters in other cultures? I'd bet so.

A little strange

I've noticed I've been hitting my head a lot recently. Like, if I'm under a desk/table, or even just now... I hit my head on the door. Not sure what's going on.

anyway...
