Shortlog - a log of everyday things



My thighs are super sore from all the running around yesterday. Apparently, I can sprint at 17 mph. If I could keep it up for a mile, that'd be a mile in under four minutes. Pity I can't go very far that fast.

Today was Pi Day (March 14th)! For the CS social hour, Jono meant to get pies, but apparently other people in town had similar ideas, so Trader Joes was completely out of pies. We wound up with various other tasty things instead.

This evening, Ankur threw a pi day party. There were pina coladas, pizzas, and lots of pies, both sweet and savory. I probably can't remember them all, but there was a meat pie with ground beef and lamb and onions, a pineapple pizza, a chili pie, an apple pie, a pumpkin pie, a pie containing corn, macaroni and cheese, and mashed potatoes, a latke pie with applesauce, and a chocolate pie. I sampled all of them, and they were tasty.

The chat was lively and properly nerdy. While I'd seen a few of the people in attendence before, the majority of the faces were new to me. Many were former Tetazoans.

As people left, our numbers dropped to six people, and we played a game of Canadian Fish. I'd never heard of the game before, and I kept zoning out and forgetting all the state I'd known the entire game because I was tired, but it seems quite interesting. Apparently Ankur and friends have written AIs for the game as well; I may try my hand at writing my own some time.
