John Stewart, Blog breaks, SYDHT

One: John Stewart will be signing his new book at Politics and Prose on Friday, 10/15 at 1 p.m. [link via DCist] Why, oh why, did I start a job and giving up having Fridays off? Two: Hmm. Near the same time that DG decided to take a break, Kelly at Just Playin' is thinking about going underground. And Musclehead is talking “break' too! Is there a spreading theme here? Three:L-Cubed has started a new feature called ”So You Don't Have To“ in which Scott reads something good in print and posts about it so you can save yourself the cost of the magazine or whatever. Brilliant idea! Four: Do you play computer games in class? In my ConLaw class, one person is usually playing something that looks a little sims-like. In Evidence, every day, for the entire hour, this guy in front of me plays emulated Nintendo games. He occassionally pauses the game to tap in a note about what's happening in class, but probably 98% of his time and attention is on the games. Incredible, really. The game looks pretty fun, though. Oh, another popular one: Snood. Five: Our home network has been down all week and Verizon can't even hook up our phone 'til next Tuesday, meaning we won't have DSL until sometime after that. At the moment, they can't even tell us whether our phone line is DSL-capable—they have to hook up the phone first. If we find the line doesn't support DSL, online life is going to be very sad, indeed. Anyhoo, my severely limited access to the 'net may mean lack of updates or responses to comments or emails until things settle down, just FYI.

One: Damn, I need to see if he's coming here!

Two: Going underground isn't the same as a hiatus, and I think there are good reasons to go underground. I've considered it myself before, but if you are really saying controversial things, people will want to know who you are and endevor to find out (re: Anonymous Lawyer). So I figure, who cares? :)

Three: I love meta media... Hell, I don't watch TV anymore, but I always read "I Like to Watch" on Salon.

Four: Yesterday in Legal Writing, a girl in front of me played Snood the entire time. :) I don't have the chops to play a game and take notes at the same time... it's hard enough to pay attention while blogging. :)

Five: Phone companies suck. But not as much as cable companies.

I don't always play games in class, but when I do it's ALWAYS Bejeweled or that Evil Yeti game where the Yeti hits the penguins. But, I rarely, if ever, take a note in class (except in Int'l Law where I take COPIOUS notes because I love it and totally respect the prof too much to even dream of getting on the internet)...I spend the entirety of every class on the internet, emailing, IM'ing or blogging. Sad but true.

Two: Maybe the squirrels got them too,

Four: I used to play Literati in property last year. I couldn't bear that class. I generally don't play games though. I'll chat on AOL though. comically, it's usually someone in class that I am talking with.
