1. You look better with a beard.
2. Think outside your bias.
3. Green. And Khaki.
4. You're smart. I can exercise my vocabulary with you, and you don't complain about it.
5. Sitting around with you (and Tony, and Eric, and Rob, and...Jake?) playing D&D in the library at Prison Hell.
6. You actually epitomize a Human Ape to me. I think it's partially your dependence on language and pedantry that forces you above 'animal' status.
7. Do you regret not going directly into Grad School from undergrad?
8. Smoke Two Joints - Sublime. ;-)

That was very cool, thanks.

I do not regret it, although I have some guilt and worry about STILL not having gone. Even just in terms of personal growth, I am really glad I did not launch into that three years ago. When you include my professional growth in research and simply in job-having and responsibility, it seems overwhelmingly likely that I could have flubbed it straight out of school. (To this pedant, "flub" means "underachieved".)

PS, re: pedantry, I am so guilty. Before reading this I had just posted on another journal with the word 'apophthegmatic'.
