Here I am, tralla lalla laaa’ing my way down to the uni (to finish up (start) some stuff on the now much talked about talk) when I ran into one of my neighbours. Apparently, she had observed my curious behaviour yesterday as I was taking Bug’s eye view.

And by curious behaviour, I mean lying down in odd positions on fallen leaf covered grass. Anyway, after she approached me (with some caution I might add), we got around to talking and it soon became clear I wasn’t some nutcase who does funky yoga or whatever on the grass outside (Not that I have anything against nutcases (or sane people) who do funky yoga or whatever on the grass outside). By which time, of course?, she’d indicated curiosity to sneak a peek at my “work”.

Luckily us geeks carry our computer everywhere. Which has added benefits like having a digital copy of your picture collection at all times. Complete with that special folder filled with the ones you know came out better than most, just for days like these.

So, right there, on some footpath sidewalk somewhere, I got my few minutes of glory. She was impressed.

It’s funny how the weirdest and smallest of things can make you grin so much. :D

On a side note, during the rest of the walk (mostly downhill), I kept having this intense urge to reacquaint myself with a skateboard. I don’t know whether it was a seed sown when I watched Dave (another Dave) literally ride into class, or all this scheming about riding down one way and using the bus on the way back.

    There’s a distinct difference between being interested in someone’s ‘work’ and them.

    I was about to form a sentence here that has the words besides, younger, caucasian, league, much, undergrad, out of but decided not to.

    Getting geeky, I know. I feel this intense urge to just unleash statements in more concise notation at times.

    Once MS figures out that people use IE and innovation is not some taboo concept and that MathML is very useful, all will be well. Well as in better anyway.
