Nice pub session tonight, this afternoon networking across cultural/linguistic boundaries with fellow scholars, more end-of-semester stress (sometimes I just feel sad for the kids in my care), China looms.

I fuckin' hate that three-quarters of the ads during televised basketball games are enlistment pitches (emphasizing the fist-pumping, sunglasses-wearing, video-games-playing fantasies of adolescent males). That target demographic is too damned vulnerable.

Kobe Bryant is one of the all-time greats as a player and as an arrogant punk--both.

Departure-date: 9 days and counting.
