briefly/anniversary

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at August 12, 2003 10:58 PM Today, August 12, is the second anniversary of my arrival in Berkeley. I won't make this into a long entry about the last two years and my plans for the future (though I could!), but I thought it was worth mentioning.

I'm still too jetlagged to write the Tokyo rundown, or comment coherently on something relevant like Schwarzenegger's candidacy. I will say that things are going well here; I can actually get into my storage room now, I have a new cell phone that works (same number, still doesn't work well from my apartment), and the reason I didn't have any e-mail from lab over the weekend is that all my software was working. Hey, with this kind of luck I should just start asking girls out at random. Tags:

Careful...

Asking girls out at random requires that you TALK to them. Sure you're up to it?

Re: Careful...

Ha ha. Your vote of confidence is truly appreciated. However, you are technically incorrect. I could ask them out by e-mail.

Pull a George Constanza

Travis, I think you should do what George did on Seinfeld...just do the OPPOSITE of whatever you would normally do...so I guess with you that would mean running up to them in public, grabbing them, bend them backwards and plant a big kiss on them. Hey, it could work...

...wait a minute, maybe you do that kind of stuff already...

Re: Pull a George Constanza

I suspect that merely talking to them will be sufficiently opposite my normal mode of behavior, and result in fewer assault convictions. I am also considering a solution involving tranquilizer darts.

Re: Pull a George Constanza

I just watched the Crocodile Hunter and I think that the tranquilizer dart is an excellent idea...you could bring along a camera crew and whisper to them while you're approaching..."Danger danger danger":)
