Cheston is right, it was weird going to bed on Election Night and not biting my nails or pulling my hair out. It’s good to see some balance restored; I’ve been telling myself for 6 years now that it is all cyclical, and eventually things would even out a bit, but it was starting to feel like a pipe dream.

It’s also great to see Deval Patrick take the governorship here in Massachusetts… Kerry Healey exuded pure evil..


Took my Prob and Stat exam a few hours ago, and I probably did within 10 points of last exam (which was an 85), so i still feel good about it all. The final, however, is going to require much studying.

I have a OS2 group meeting at 5pm, and then a bunch of CS profs are coming up at 7pm to CSH for a pizza mixer type thingie. It’s the first of it’s kind (in many moons), so it should be interesting to see how it turns out. Then, after that, comes the “Lab of idiocy”….

Don’t forget one of your most important civic duties; Today is election day. If you feel so inclined (and you should), go and vote. If you don’t like any of the available candidates, write in yourself for christ’s sake. Even if you don’t care about the Presidential race, I am sure there are local issues that affect you directly.


I got my Stevie Ray Vaughan CD’s today, and they are great… I also got my absentee ballot for the upcoming presidental election… I am really split on this one though… Not voting for Bush, but I don’t know if I want to vote for Gore…. Or do I want to vote for a 3rd party? Sigh…

Work is moving along, but I chased a evil bug for quite awhile today…. It’s kinda OK though, bugs happen, and finding them is kinda fun, even when they run you around for awhile…
