At Least I'm Still Easily Amused

  1. Have been a down mood the past few days. Decided to do something about it yesterday by going shopping. But things were so bad that clothes-shopping would have been overwhelming and wouldn't have helped, so, instead, I went grocery shopping.


    Impulse-bought this because I thought it was funny.

  2. Started writing the final exams. One of my word problem people is Kermit the Frog. You are having an argument with Kermit about prime numbers, and you need to convince him of your (which I hope is MY) point of view. Yes, I know that silly problems like this probably contribute to the impression that math is stupid and useless, but it's the end of the semester, and I'm not perfect.

  3. Maybe I should have named my word problem people Colonel Homomorphism and General Position?
