fucking magnets!

wikipedia is chasing me

just a few days ago i was reading about shimer college on wikipedia, having found in the cv of an author whose paper i was reading that he got his b.a. at shimer, which i don't recall encountering during my college search (or later), despite it's geographic proximity. and lo & behold, today it's the featured article. it sounds a lot like reed college, which place of learning i did seriously consider during my college search, and apparently, in another world very much like this one, attended.

daft hunk

if luck were grapes, my cellar would be fully stocked with a multitude of vintages

1: the particular concert absolutely must be attended -- two tickets are an absolute necessity
2: one is a procrastinator, even with tasks with no real reason to be put off
3: nonetheless, one's expectation that tickets would be available even up until showtime had a reasonable precedential basis
4: out of an abundance of caution, one purchases the tickets in advance
5: one is told: "you're lucky, those are the last two."

don't i know it.

how many times in my life have i been told that? too many, almost just enough.
