A Modest Request
In the coming ten hours, I must:
  • prepare Greek homework
  • Prepare Latin homework + study for the quiz
  • Make progress with my notes for the Iliad, book five
  • Read at least two articles for Prof. Ben-Porat's seminar
I charge you, LJ friends, to demand of me by the end of the night which of these, if any, I have accomplished.

Thanks.

bottom line: Predictably, I've only managed two of the items. Suck suck suck. But I did get to meet some old friends I haven't seen in a while, like fishberg, ghostwheel, among other people I see more of, at spelljammer's birthday party. And had some fun conversations, too.

Current Mood: determined
Current Music: Zohar Argov -- Et Dodim Kala

Alas, no! And not on the next weekend, either!

But perhaps some weekday morning?

I'm a meeting in TAU at noon Tuesday. We can play in the morning before that.

Or alternatively, Thursday morning works for me too.

I have a class on Tuesday at 12:15, and I must be post-shower by then. Does the Squash center have usable showers, do you think?

Thursday might be more leisurely, but I might want to use that morning for woik, depending on how many hours at L-O I can squeeze throughout the week. I lean towards Tuesday. Let's try that.

I didn't plan to come to my noon meeting unshowered, myself :)

The sports center has adequate facilities. If you think you can start chasing balls at 10am, we can have a nice game on Tue...

(In England I had a weekly date for Squash on Fridays... at *nine*!)

Yeah, Greek went well today. And Latin was a breeze, too, there was just a lot of it (two weeks' worth of homework). Besides, I am king of procrastination and sloth. Would have shown you my certificate but I was too lazy to ever go and receive it.

I have just sent J to help you an hour ago, I hope he is helpful.

We have discussed the Opera show, and it will be in about two weeks from now.
We might use J's projector and music system for that.
Of course you are invited.

Is the title of your post influenced by Jonathan Swift's "modest proposal"? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

It's the right tree, but there's no need to bark. :)

Sorry I couldn't abuse you over this. I meant to, but I was still out-of-town with a dubious internet connection.
