much work - lunch + Jens = n

where n is a large number.

I had a long day today! It reminded me that there is work to do in this wonderful-yet-stressful little bubble world called CMU. For example, classes! 3 classes = 3 projects. Youch!

Also, as I walked into Formal Languages, Automata, and Computability (say THAT 3 times fast), I inadvertently dumped my lentils and black-eyed peas all over the floor. It was really quite funny. I think I’m the only one who found it funny. It helps to have a sense of humor when you walk into your class for the first time and dump your lunch on the floor.

All that aside, I just put Jens Lekman’s “Night Falls over Kortedala” on the iPod, and I’ll tell you, it’s not often that I get so transfixed by a disc as to skip whatever else I was doing and play it all the way through, but this disc is one of them. Aaah! It’s so good! Pop music with a little bit of kitsch and a lot of catchy beats. Plus his voice that is sweet and mellow like chocolate.

Did I mention I went skiing in Utah? Snow was the best, crowds were nonexistent, I took a group lesson and ended up getting a private lesson, our condo was deluxe, and (most importantly) I was staying with good friends. I am a lucky guy. My mom said “Well, you may have a new guardian angel who loves those black diamonds”. As silly as that is, it’s really a pretty cool sentiment.
