used r's low-level interface to rename 176 files (according to a pattern) in about three minutes of coding.

wrote syntax to convert meps sas instructions into an executable sas program.

read half of an end to suffering: the buddha in the world. kind of an asshole for ditching his family in the middle of the night. also, not a great book.

country skillet cheese

cheese with jalapeno and some bread too

drank boot beer.

ate frozen custard..

..and falafel.

polka danced.

caught up with my future doctor friends..
tom, my old bud from oberlin

and emily, my upstanding, studious, yet easily camera angle-victimized friend.

didn't understand..
used car lot inflatable orange gorilla-trolls on les paul parkway

absent senses of shame

massive pepper shakers in coffee shop condiments sections

airtran lavatory soap "affordable travel scent"

how that fan works, despite being an otherwise sickeningly awesome rural wisconsin bar

became a lake ninja in racine county.

followed the pilgrims.

saw red.

cheered cheers.. push-up per point.

waved waves..

..double time, then slowmo.

sang songs..

..everybody knows.

on wisconsin..

there's no wrong way to be a badger.
