Editing, coding, snacking, class, and karaoke...

It was a tedious day in the neighborhood.  Tedious editing for work. Tedious coding for homework.

I listened in on an hour education and information session called, "Using a Wiki to Track Content in Rational User Assistance."

After that, I participated in nearly an hour-long department meeting, during which my manager asked for feedback on a presentation she's giving to her manager's manager—that would be our manager's, manager's, manager—on Friday.

At around 4:30, I fixed myself a little appetizer: sesame water crackers, with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese, smeared with some vegetable hummus, and topped with a jalapeño slice.

While foraging through the fridge, I was delighted to find out that my grapes have not yet molded. I removed them from the opaque Tupperware container, and put them in a see-through Baggie, which I hope to grab on the run to class tonight.

An academic affirmation in the form of feedback from my professor on my presentation last night:

Hi John--

You did a great job with your presentation last night... but that's what I have come to expect from you!

I think you have found a very interesting and relevant topic, and your choice of audience for your accommodated article is fascinating... and apt. I'm a bit concerned about the lack of models to help you see what the expectations are, but perhaps you can get more information from the conference coordinators (or the web site).

Thanks for connecting what you were saying back to the Fahnestock article!

You earned an A+ for the assignment.


Verbal Data Analysis class was pretty decent tonight. Once again, it was more "do" than "listen," which I prefer.

I met Joe at Helios after class and not long after that, we went to karaoke, where Joe ended up closing the house down with his rendition of Sweet Caroline, with everyone left in the bar (okay, about 5 people) screaming the "bahmp, bahmp, bahm," and the "so good, so good, so good" lines.
