Yesterday at the Cafe

Went to the cafe to get some work done.

  • A woman was having lunch with a Tibetan Buddhist monk. She spoke in the slow, loud, exaggerated tones that people use when talking to someone who doesn't speak English very well. Did you know that the Dali Lama has instructed the monks to study science?

  • Two professors met for coffee. One was talking about his head injury from a few years back. The doctors said that he had only a minor brain injury and shouldn't experience much of a cognitive deficit. He said that the only thing that he's noticed is that he can no longer smell farts.

  • Chose one of the texts for my proposal for an interdisciplinary class. It's typeset in Trump MediƤval.

  • My Dansko shoesHalf the women at the cafe were wearing Dansko shoes. Gives me hope that I will be able to buy them in town instead of having to order through the J.Jill catalog.
