Printer's Row Book Fair

I went to the annual Printer's Row Book Fair. It was nice. It would have been nice to go with someone, or to stay longer, but it's finals week.
Mischief Avoided

I didn't go to the Drake Hotel after all.

I saw Maurizio Pollini.

Am I not answering my cel phone? Am I not answering my e-mail? If I'm in my apartment, I don't have e-mail. Otherwise I may be at the computer lab, the library, or in class. My schedule for this quarter is:

Mon           Tues
10:00A-1:00P  None

Weds          Thurs
10:00A-1:00P  None

Fri           Sat
8:00A-11:00A  1:00P-5:00P

Encyclopedia of Pain

I work in a computer lab in the basement of the science library. At our last staff meeting we picked up printer paper from behind the circulation desk. Someone noticed a book called The Encyclopedia of Pain. Someone else said, "Imagine if we pulled up the checkout record and every name was Chuck Norris."

I've made a few Listmania lists on Amazon. One is on Buddhist books (148 views... neat!), and the other is on heartbreak albums (4 views... oh well).
