money talks! 12.16.04


so i have a final tomorrow. i need to study. so my blogs of my semi-adventures are limited. i will say this much: i will post a couple of pics from last saturday later. sunday i spent on the group project. monday, a presentation with my yearlong group project team. plus a pension analysis/ paper written in about an hour and a half. tuesday, a cost management presentation that was more comedy than substance. also had a drink with a young lady.

today i procrastinated and loafed-- have a 20 page paper and a test to make a crib sheet for (tonight). so i swam some laps:

2 x 50 free (fast warmup)
4 x 100 breaststroke (medium/ fast. stop laughing, marge)
2 x 50 free (medium)
2 x 200 breastroke (medium)
2 x 50 free (medium)

i need to do more laps.

then i watched a NYU women's basketball game. the women lost to baruch college, of the cuny system. the NYU women were ranked #1 in division III. but no baruch fans stormed the court. it's not every day that you can see the #1 team in the country knocked off, live.

ran into miles-- tall 6 foot 6 cat from the university-- on campus, walked and talked and drank coffee. i made him laugh. i was a counselor for an orientation program miles was in (eben was a counselor back in the day too). miles, he reminisced about the letter i wrote to all of my incoming freshmen. it was long. pages long. probably handwritten. he wondered what i wasn't doing with my time to write a number of these (though i only had 4 to do, and i wanted the kids to have a human touch).

so it's late and i am futzing around again. so i will thief this from greg. send your friends over or something, i like more suggestions:

(A) First, recommend to me:
1. a movie:
2. a book:
3. a musical artist, song, or album:
4. a song to download:
(B) I want everyone who reads this to ask me three questions, no more, no less. Ask me anything you want.
(C) Then I want you to go to your journal, copy and paste this allowing your friends to ask you anything.

Heehee, you said breast and stroke, shame you haven't combined the two recently. I stroked a breast just the other day, it's amazing what you can get away with on a crowded Tube train...

Greg said...

Ok, so I realize I am tad bit late on this, but I wanna play! Pleeese!

Film: Little Darlings. The one blip on Tatum O'Neil's brilliant port-"Blue Moon" resume. Also, I will yell it loud - "Kicking and Screaming" (1995 - not the new Will Farrell one) - will it ever be released on DVD??

Book: Well, Silver covered the World of Pooh, I am going to "Hey, Nostradamus" I just finished it.

Song: er, fuck it. Check out the entire album - Kitchens Of Distinction/Strange Free World

Download: Louie, Louie

1. What makes Sammy run?
2. Will I actually get my arse out of bed today (gotta love the wireless)
3. Why can't I think of a third question?

Sharma's post-India list:

movie: "Sholay." Bollywood classic. One of the most bad-ass westerns ever. That's right, INDIAN WESTERN. And it's good.

book: "The Namesake," Jhumpa Lahiri. the damn thing could've been another 200 pages long, it's that good.

album: Animal Chin, "all the kids agree." Remember when ska was... okay? I still have a soft spot for the aggro.

download: that lindsey lohan song. it's good to know the enemy.

what made you want to leave NYC when you were 18?
if you were forced to up and leave the lower 48 and never return, where'd you go?
and why?
