Other Ten Percent 9/29/10

Sep 29 2010

Okay, for the record here is what I’m scheduled to be doing for the rest of this trip at the moment. Today I am going to the John Hodgman taping and then maybe going back to the Hurricane Club because that place was cool. Tomorrow I am mostly free but then going to watch TV with Jill and people in the evening. Thursday is when we go to all the gallery shows I’ve wanted to see and then do art student happy hour. Friday I have the law school forum and then a party in Jersey. Saturday I might go back to the law school forum depending on a few factors and then the Hackers party and then Sunday there is a subculture brunch, HOORAY. Now let’s look at links.
