Odds and ends

I got my Express Mail refund today, although it took at least 30 minutes out of my life at the Clayton post office. On the upside, I did pick up some of those fancy Jamestown 41¢ stamps while I was there, as well as having the rather amusing experience of seeing someone who had brought in at least 20 first-class letters stamped with both a 39-cent stamp and a Forever stamp.

After the postal service ordeal, I ate lunch at Lampert’s Plush Pig BBQ on Forsyth, which was reasonably good although a bit pricey (Hog Heaven in Daytona was substantially better).

EITM today was nicely bifurcated; I understood everything this morning (basically a review of mathematical statistics through Bayes’ Theorem) but a lot less this afternoon (basically a review of game theory through comparative statics), although my vague recollections of my undergrad calculus and differential equations helped somewhat. Lesson of the day: I probably should have crammed in a game theory class at ICPSR.

I also learned today that walking back home from the Metrolink station in the middle of summer at 4:45 pm while carrying a full backpack is not very much fun. Tomorrow’s plan: park and ride, the environment be (partially) damned.

No posts on the presumed death of Vince McMahon, yet? I’m shocked and saddened. I thought you’d be on top of it! :-) Of course, the only news outlet reporting it thus far is, but don’t let that stop you!


An American tragedy, let me tell you…

Of course, the real tragedy is that I’ll never get back the ten minutes of my life I spent watching the end of last night’s RAW. I can console myself by knowing that at least I didn’t spend the first 2:55 watching it.

The show itself was crappy; I wish they’d do it more like the NBA or NFL draft, but I’m all geared up for the supplemental draft in 2 1/2 short hours!

You didn’t like the way it ended? I loved it! Granted I’m afraid how they’re going to handle this when Vince comes back (probably the “I knew you people appreciated me! Look how much you missed me when you thought I was dead!”), but when was the last time something this unexpected happened on WWE TV? There wasn’t a peep on the Internet that this was going to happen.
