  • Stephen Fry: What I wish I'd known when I was 18: http://t.co/W3m7sNiq #

  • Pondering how to give my prof feedback on the class structure in as non-jerk manner as possible. #

  • The Ruler. http://t.co/frkHITfr #
  • Watching "Video Games Live" (Symphony playing video game music): Sonic the Hedgehog is best so far, tho a bit "Love Boat"-y. #AmazonStream #
  • OK – 10 year old boy playing guitar hero on stage with the symphony rocks pretty dang hard. #VideoGamesLive #AmazonStream #

  • Difference Makers on Colbert is regularly a solid gold segment. #
  • Suffering from a bit of rage looking at my morning calendar tomorrow. Offsite meeting for 3 hours with no agenda? Mmmmmm. No. #
  • Still pondering how to work a burning log into my holidays somehow. #
  • I am pondering how to structure "I am thankful for…" in a way that feels less cheesy and forced. I am feeling thankful, but mixed. #
  • RT @sixthformpoet: Women: Give 'em an inch and they'll fake a smile. #
  • I believe I am Skull Boy from Ruby Gloom. #
  • Spending my day off digging into the rabbit hole of Steel Panther on YouTube. Their covers are A++. 🙂 #
  • After 5 years they have finally repainted the lanes on the Gun Club to e-470 interchange to be a dual left turn instead of a single! #
  • Part II of day off is drive north. #
  • Arrived. http://t.co/3N485Xl2 #
  • Well, @odellbrewing gets the thumbs up. Less crowded than their belgian cousins, super friendly, and great English-style beers! #
  • Did you know that @OdellBrewing's Myrcenary Double IPA was named for this compound found in Hops? http://t.co/QKJ5T4Kh #

  • Watching "The Thin Man" from 1939. There is a lot of drinking in this film! And it's funny as heck. Wishing it was color for the clothes! #
  • Nick: "I believe the little woman cares!" Nora: "I *don't* care! It's just that I'm used to you is all! So be careful!" #
  • "The Thin Man" was a blast. Gotta dig up the sequels. Nick was the perfect blend of utter competence and utter nonchalance and wink-n-nudge. #
  • Super-fun goodness from @vimeo cruising: http://t.co/9w4yc8fn . Watch it twice. Russian with English subtitles. Fave part is the muscians! #

  • I wish @denverbeerco would make a dedicated request spot at their bar, but their beer and food truck coordination definitely get an 'A'. #

  • One of my classmates is a child protective services rep for DPD, and looks strikingly like John Huertas from #Castle #
  • Me: "Performed a mechanical meta-analysis of 1000 journals and discovered these trends." Prof: "I don't know how you'd cite that; so don't". #
  • The upshot being, "if you don't know how to cite it, it's useless, and you wasted your time. #
  • Picking up soup this AM at @Hi_Rise ! #LunchPlanningAhead #

  • Phone battery at 10%. #onemonthtillnewphone #
  • My favorite thing about "A Knight's Tale" is that it's a story about teamwork. It's a medieval-flavored Ocean's 11 with kick-butt music. #
  • I must say that as much as I love non-fiction reading and writing, the process of perfectly formatting reference lists uninspires me. #
  • 1982: "the computer is a friendly tool that may correct but never judges or exposes our frailties to a sneering eye." http://t.co/6o15MvG9 #
