Thawing in Winter

Stroucki brought a cool game to last night's gaming session, whereby people play politicians and squabble over percentages of the votes. It's fun and fast-paced, and everyone had a ball. I also think that I'm no longer really mad at him..

Today, in my ever-present (and ever-dull) usenet moderation duties, I came across some spam from an entepreneur in Pittsburgh who never seems to find other jerks .. I mean entepreneurs with whom to start a compamny. It's kind of funny reading the endless stream of "Didn't have any luck yet"s -- given that he's contributed to the decline of usenet, I hope he never finds anyone.

Finally, for the first time at CMU, I've had a joke played on me (I think) by the janitors -- they turned the volume all the way up on my desktop speakers, so when I finally played a song, it blasted out loud enough that I'm sure people in nearby offices heard. OTOH, perhaps I just had my volume settings very different yesterday -- either way, it's funny.
