So, based on the fact that I’ve been getting an unusual amount of hits recently (4 a day or so) without fairly recent content, makes me think that it might be a good idea to add something. But, you see, I just started school, and it occurred to me that I’m taking 21 credits as a Computer Science major. (Translation: I’m going to either be that annoying over-achiever that you love to hate, or one of those people whose friends and neighbors end up on the news saying things like “but he was such a nice guy.”) As such, though I’ve gotten off to a decent start – one whole week without failing – I haven’t really been thinking much about what to write. However, do not despair! Friends, Romans, countrymen and Janet (that rather odiferous lady I met last week at the supermarket) – lend me your ears. Or at least read on. Here is an actual IM conversation I had with my friend Ari. I don’t know – I started joking, and he played along. I guess I just found it amusing:
Me: So when’re you coming?
Ari: one sec…
Me: Um, I mean Shavua tov.
[Hebrew for “have a good week.”]
Me: It came out wrong.
Me: That’s what I meant to say.
Ari: shavua tov
Ari: i’m not sure when we’re coming
Me: I see how it is.
Ari: i have to check out my calendar, and check with the others
Ari: possibly march
Me: You don’t love me anymore.
Me: What is it? Did you meet someone else?
Me: Is it the way I wear my hair?
Me: Or how I bite my toenails?
Me: I could stop -honestly!
Ari: you’ll never take me alive!!!!
Me: Yeah, grovel, you worm.
Ari: ok, you force me into this
Me: You won’t be going any where without this…
Me: <holds up Ari’s liver>
Ari: my liver!!!!
Ari: it was YOU all along!
Me: Uh-huh, and if I go, the liver goes with me.
Me: Your call, buster.
Me: Anyway, so March, huh.
Me: I guess I’ll just cry myself to sleep until then.
Ari: i’m thinking yeah
Ari: i guess so
