Three things

1. I completed a Thursday NYTimes crossword puzzle unassisted, for the first time ever. Yay!

2. Richard Clarke is the man. I’ve seen him talk three times so far: twice on the Daily Show, and once in person during an hour-long debate he had at Berkeley earlier this month. Each time, he’s proven to be very intelligent, extremely well-informed, and quite funny, too. It’s too bad all his talents are being squandered now (although I hope he makes a pretty penny off of them, at least).

3. I love sports. Soccer and ultimate on the weekends are now being augmented by PE basketball during the week. It’s true that basketball is by far my lamest sport… you know all the bad guys in those movies where they shoot at the good guy a hundred times as he’s escaping but never hit him? Well, I’m a worse shooter than that. Anyway, though, playing is really fun. I’m hoping to rise from “pathetic” to just “incompetent” by the end of the semester.

That is all.

      Haha I wouldn’t go that far! I started doing them this summer and was pretty terrible at the beginning, definitely. But the nafter a while you get used to the various tricks (and common words) that turn up again and again. Makes everything easier. And anyway, I’m pretty sure I got lucky on this one. Will have to wait till next Thursday to find out! :)

    Nice dude, the entire NY Times crossword puzzle. It’s good to see you’re going to improve your basketball skills, too.
