The laptop arrived at the repair center before Thanksgiving. What this means practically, I do not know. However, there are a few things I did learn this week:
- I have a new favorite place to work. (Thanks Miriam!)
- I really hate macs.
- AOL’s beta of IM looks much nicer, but it’s still buggy. (Random disconnects).
- I need to do some editing on the blog design to account for smaller resolutions and variant color settings.
- Structuralism ~= The Brisker Method (and not in terms of crispiness) – maybe more on this later.
Oh, and a hearty mazal tov to 2x former roommate Yossi Mandlebaum on his engagement to Carolyn Koch. (No onlysimchas link, God bless ’em).
Hmm… With any luck, this means you’re a s’gulah former roommate! And if it works that well for a 2x former roommate, imagine how well it should work for a 4x (or 5x, depending on how you count) former roommate!
Maybe we should start rubbing Josh’s tummy for luck?
I was actually going to put us up on only simchas. However, I wanted to post a picture of two gorrilas instead of me and Carolyn. I realize that thos e pretentious jerks would take it down right away b/c it would mean that s/o wasn’t taking them as seriously as they would like to be taken, but it might be funny for the 6 minutes that it would be up before it would be taken down.
Josh, what was that equation of brisk to structuralism about? Like structuralism is so biiig and wide and broad and deep and tall and deep and gyrating… It’s like saying tosfos = love, or something. There definitely something mystically kabbalistic about structuralism though. The sod emerges, the sod emerges.
Modern — I’d love to elaborate, but not until intersession. Too much to do now.
