Thanks to grad school, I am now located in a totally different town, state, climate and time zone. Strangely, I thought the move from Colorado to good ol' Tallahassee, FL would help me focus on reading, writing and thinking. But look! I'm still just hangin' on the 'net and posting pointless drivel to a blog no one reads 'cos I don't tell anyone...

Really, I need to be realistic about this. This is a post on a blog on a site primarily known for naked girls. How many people will ever really tear themselves away from boobies and read this little yibber-yabber? But then again...

With anonymity comes...the opposite of responsibilty. Like Spider-man in reverse. This is a place where what I saw is simultaneously absolutely public---or...

Yeah...what the hell am I doing back here?

I mean, don't I have better things to do than hang around a smart-geek porn site?

So here's the to do list:

calculus homework...
reading Kripke, Ryle and Geertz...
writing a 'statement of purpose'...
studying for the GRE...
researching grad schools that are good enough to get me a job but crummy enough to let me in...
work to pay for all those things...

and what I am doing:

bumming around on the internet

Hmmm..

Metapost: how many posts in...

New favorite thing:

looking for used Doc Martens on eBay. Out of four pairs, one is wearable, one fits my brother, and two were useless. All for less than the price of one new 'made in china' pair!

I'll do anything rather than do homework. I hate school. No wait...I love school. That's why I've been going for so long.

So I was watching Vertigo for the umpteenth time, and I got to the point where Jimmy Stewart retreives Kim Novak from San Fran Bay. After his adventure of jumping into the water for the rescue, he returns to his apartment and changes out of his suit and into...

high-waisted pleated blue trousers, a white dress shirt and a green crew-neck sweater...

...and I realized...

And try to be as annoying as humanly possible.

Umm...So, I just got my first comment...and it makes me feel kinda weird...like I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be excited and all...

...this whole journal concept is kinda strange to me...like am I supposed to just write the freaky angry stuff that pops into my head?...

Hey...

I swore a personal and private oath to stop commenting in the "evolution" thread on the boards, so I can't say anything there. But privately, I would like to say that your comment about falsifiability, Popper, and all is terrific. It's what I would have said, if I'd been a little more together, and somewhat smarter. So... thanks!!! Good work!

Looking forward to reading more of your contributions.

"I sometimes despair of getting any thing quite simple and honest done in this world by the help of men. They would have to be passed through a powerful press first, to squeeze their old notions out of them, so that they would not soon get upon their legs again, and then there would be some one in the company with a maggot in his...
