1. We are into the quarterfinals of the first ever Scrollwheel iPod Tournament of Death. And yes, I've made it in.

2. Congratulations to eowen and ed_nimrod on getting their new apartment. Kath and I are sad that we have no one left to play with in Astoria, but kudos to you crazy kids on getting back into Manhattan.

3. Finally finished "Pale Fire" a couple days ago, which was amazing; now I'm not sure what to read. I think I'm going to need to get "The Real Life of Sebastian Knight" next.

4. Lots of people from my past are starting to find me on MySpace. It's both really cool to reconnect to them, and also incredibly wierd and mind-fucking.

5. Baseball baseball baseball baseball baseball.

That's it for now. I'm stumbling through the creation of a PowerPoint presentation and very actively NOT filing the crap on my desk.
