(Yeah. My laptop couldn't handle Ubuntu.)
Right now I should be asleep.
Instead, my mind is reeling from a few things. For instance, nailing a $1200 JVC HTDV for a mere $300. Primarily, probably, it's the discussion over here. Please, someone come save me before I make an ass of myself. I feel like I'm considering ideas and methods that are beyond my understandings.
Maybe that's why I'm feeling particularly non-euclidean at the moment. Like I might implode if my thoughts wandered a certain direction.
The second largest ingredient to my mania is the fact that I need to wake up from my nap in three hours, to go to the Meaningful Play Conference. (Link on the left)
Only, I don't really have a plan for what I want to see. So, I'll map it out here.

I have no idea what the hell is going on with that formatting. I apologize for the silliness. I'll post my plan for the rest of the conference, tomorrow.
Note to self: When you wake up, grab a notebook and pack some nice clothes to bring with you. As well as your cell phone charger.
