Who I’m Meeting
U.S. Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.) was on campus today; I got a chance to meet him briefly. I figured everybody else would ask him serious stuff, so the only question I asked him? “Was the Three Stooges movie good?” (I had heard him mention to his media guy that he’d seen it). “Yes, actually, it was very good,” he told me. It was awesome.
I live-tweeted his open forum on campus; here’s one of the tweets with a pic of him and our sustainability coordinator, Erika Bailey-Johnson (who, in amazing fashion, wore her Yoda t-shirt for her meeting with a U.S. Senator).
What I’m Watching
I keep hearing about Doctor Who, and how it’s supposed to be this vital cog in the geek machine; I’ve never watched it. I’ve had it in our instant queue on Netflix forever, but it was only tonight that I got around to giving it a try. I’m starting with the first season that Netflix has available, with Christopher “I was an awesome Destro” Eccleston as the Doctor. Watching the second episode right now; so far, it’s pretty campy and ridiculous, and it’s hard to imagine that I’ll get into it at all. I could be wrong, though; who knows.
