Did a lot of driving this weekend, and started out by hitting "shuffle" on my full music library, figuring it'd be a good chance to re-discover what I had. A couple hours later, I finally figured out that I failed to hit shuffle, and was instead working my way through all my tracks alphabetically. Then I thought, eh, why not?

I went from "1,000,000" by Nine Inch Nails to "Cold" by Crossfade. There are a surprising number of songs that begin with "al"...

Bait used in deer hunting (which in Texas, seems to consist of sitting in a metal tower surrounded with deer corn, drinking large amounts of beer and shooting starving deer at close range, which with the beer, is probably the only way you can shoot them). During a cross-country road trip maybe a decade ago, I passed through west Texas in deer season, and EVERY place seemed to sell deer corn. Every gas station, grocery story, thrift store, or hardware store, sure. But I saw it stacked up in front of a BEAUTY SALON!

While having our first research meeting of the semester, I'm talking to my GA, and then my hand touches something goopy. Turns out to be parts of my breakfast that somehow ended up stuck to my shirt. Because I am the stereotypical absentminded professor, apparently...

And of course, since she knows me well, she just chuckled, and we moved on :)

Anyone know a show with a female character that's a goofy bully like Lightman in Lie To Me?

During the UAlbany opening convocation, I struck up a conversation with a young man who had just come back from a stint in the Marines. I thanked him for his service, and we talked about school and how much his Mom missed him while he was overseas, and how much she misses him again now that he moved to Albany.

Then a student in my online class introduced himself as a retired police officer, and I thanked him for his service too, because in general, I like to thank people who signed up for jobs that they know in advance could end up killing them.

But after Sandy Hook, I'm guessing that every pre-service and in-service teacher has thought about what to do if a deranged gunman shows up in their classroom - I know I have! - and I'm starting to wonder why I don't thank them for their service too...

I was a guest speaker with +Filament Games on their podcast, and it just came out today! https://www.filamentgames.com/blog/fgp2-13-math-learning-games

Also, I kinda wish I was a permanent fixture in this podcast with +Dan Norton and +Brandon Pittser - you two are a ton of fun! =D
