Books
I finally finished my review of A Delightful Compendium of Consolation: A Fabulous Tale of Romance, Adventure and Faith in the Medieval Mediterranean by Burton L Visotzky (2008), despite being done with the book for some time. When I broke my arm, I did my annual reread of IT, and also read Neverwhere, which was the only Gaiman to date I hadn't gotten around to. Last night I plowed through my third in a chain on evolutionary game theory (which I am trying to teach myself about, in the hopes of improving data search efficiency algorithms) , and this weekend I hope to get back into some fluff.

Tech
I am running out of room! I need to buy some gigantic hard drives, stat. I keep trying to wait until the price goes down, but I'm down to my last few dozen gig! Unfortunately, I am currently also without an MP3 player - deciding between the two of these things is making me want to set fire to my apartment so I can declare an insurance write off, and just get new stuff.

Work
Big project kickoff Monday. Huge deadlines looming June 1 and July 1, for completely unrelated projects to the one that starts next week. Also looming: ulcers.

Friends
Finally trying to get out a little bit, though that still leaves me wiped the next day when I do. Saw hoolifan when he was in town, and used the opportunity to catch up with techtraum ,cercaria and soon-to-be cerctraum, and also hang out w/ next door neighbor wangch61 at the same time. We went to Molly's in Grammercy, which was good, but I remember being cheaper somehow the last time I was there. I imagine their rent has gone up too. Fucking Manhattan.

Life
I am moving again in August. In addition to above listed deadlines, I have two weddings, a fishing trip, a family reunion, and lord knows how many other birthdays and other incidentals between now and then. I also have at _least_ 3 more months of P/T, and who knows what other funs medically. Asylums are expensive; donations are appreciated.

World
Most of the dry, hot places are running low on, if not out of food - in Hati, people are eating mud and butter. In the first world, Japan is out of butter.

This has be going seven ways on the global situation. Bad enough I probably added 10% worth of new content to read on US recession, now I'm trying to get some good resources on geopolitical commodity exchange disbursement, and cross-hatch that with GDP?Consumption analysis by region. I'm glad I don't sleep much, because if I did, this shit would be scaring me awake every night, even if I couldn't read it all.

Pimpage
peepeepoopoo (who really does never use this thing) posted the coolest video I've seen in a while on his Vimeo profile. He's offering prints of it, reasonably priced! Go, buy.


Science Machine from Chad Pugh on Vimeo.

Tomorrow I'm going to Video Games Live. I am hoping it is as good as it looks. Expect a review.

good to hear you're getting around a bit. the weather's been lovely this week. i don't think it will hold up, but i'm down for some good old-fashioned "sittin' in the park" on my days off. if you're up to it, we'll do it.

i'm in the market for external HD space too. if you find any good deals, holler. i'll do the same.
