Tweets for the week of September 21st, 2009

  • Just FYI, the next person who congratulates me on having a PhD defense date runs the risk of being punched in the face. #
  • Trying to feel good about making a bunch of progress on the stratigraphic sorting. #
  • And then every so often I'm like, "Maybe I could enjoy a being Postdoc, given a sufficiently long vacation first." #
  • Okay, enough of this nonsense. I'm going home. Right after I pilfer some toilet paper… #
  • I'd much rather get a partnership out of my PhD, than a PhD out of my partnership. #
  • I have a bunch of good day-old ciabatta bread in my office, if anybody wants some. #
  • Mmmm, PB&J. Mike would be proud. (Or jealous…) #
  • Sacrificing the ornamental plants in the courtyard to the Ice Queen Europa. #
  • Pasadena Bicycle Master Plan Meeting 6:30-8:30pm, October 1st at 1020 N. Fair Oaks Ave. More details here: #
  • The Wall Street Journal just contacted me about being interviewed for an article about dumpster diving. What should I do? #
  • It's hard to believe that many of our grandparents (or even our parents!) remember a world before modern China existed: #
  • There's no food in my office, so what are these ants looking for? #
  • not sure what to think of being told I am too articulate and enlightened to be useful by a journalist from the WSJ. Compliment? Insult? #
  • either rationality *or* intelligibility would be a big improvement in our landlady. We can't even tell what kind of crazy she's talking. #
  • Trying to measure a reduction in entropy. As much as anything, I associate entropy with evil, and someday it will win, but not yet. #
