I think I need to keep better track of my blog reading. Wait. Is this what tumblr and diigo are for?!

Did I mention that the police found my car? Yeah. It was parked 10 blocks away. Nothing important was stolen or damaged: the thieves cleaned out the glove compartment (no money); took all my CDs (but not my mother's); and left the car smelling like booze, sweat, and weed. But the smell's faded in the last week and the rest is inconsequential. Lucky me!

Oh. My. God. The Little Vulcan is the cutest thing ever *.*

So hang on a minute, your car slunk back two weeks later, all beat-up and smelling of booze?

...that's kind of beautiful.

I'm glad you got it back! :)

Yeah, we figure someone just didn't want to walk home from the bar.

♥ Me too!

Those transcribed sentences from the nitrous oxide experiment leave me with a burning, burning desire to try writing my thesis while on nitrous oxide. (Unfortunately, I think I'd better get back to writing it while sober instead...) Also, best investigation of Hegelism ever? I THINK SO.

I just peeked at The Little Vulcan and squeed out loud! Fandom produces the most awesome stuff.

ASEANS in Space is very very interesting. I think I need a bit of time for it to percolate in my brain. *ponders* (Although my initial reaction is to feel a bit left out, haha!)

Also, thank goodness about your car! That was quite lucky!

FINAL REPOST sorry for being so neurotic
I was telling chat friends all yesterday that despite appearances, this is NOT the 19th century version of the "drugs make you so deep, maaaaan" essay. It is, instead, a detailed description of strong euphoria. And while the author ultimately concludes that insights gained while in this state are not useful, you will note that he first has to try it more than once. XD

It's Kara's! She's awesome!

Should write the sequel: Filipino/as in Space. ^^ Kara's take was that it's the most plausible reason ever given for Kirk's rapid promotion. I think I agree with her, and DON'T agree with the commenter who said the writing was too obvious and didactic. You can't be too subtle with something like this or people will miss your point completely.

The William James essay is awesome. XDDDD
