Huzzah! to getting things done  
So, I woke up naturally today - as in, without an alarm. That's good- I hadn't set said alarm. I think it also means that my light is working. To the light, I say "word."

My most recent poem received a wide variety of comments in class yesterday, almost all of them positive. That makes me feel pretty good, I think. I was mostly surprised by the number of ways to read meaning into the poem. For crying out loud - I only made it "seven" sparrows because seven is the only number less than ten that has two syllables! But I guess a diversity of opinion and interpretation is a good thing for art - I was equally amazed by Zach's piece, and the depth of meaning it had inside of it. I wonder if people are aware how much their work impacts others, even in a creative writing class?

Last night I read by candlelight for the first time in too long. I also fell asleep while I was reading, and, to make a long story short, does anybody know how to get candle wax off wood?

Work today has three main components - verbal, somatic- err, the real analysis homework, the M-T character program, and at least one section of the Design Patterns paper. I think I can actually get the Murnaghan-Tanayama character program to worl, which would be awesome - Tom doesn't know anybody who's actually implemented the algorithm yet. Adios!

Being productive is fun, ne?

But reading by candlelight is just sugoi.

dude! tell the truth. that's the _only_ reason you used "seven?" are you sure it doesn't have anything to do with the mystical qualities of said number? it had nothing to do with the absolute awesomeness of "seven?" the incredible delectibility of it? surely "seven" means more to you than its number of syllables. think, man. you were meant to use "seven." it's a sign, a portent, an omen, and a totem. all hail the mighty seven. seven rules. it will certainly protect you. call my name and i will appear.
