Stolen from http://www.bastichlabz.org/tigger/TechHumor/poem.txt, though you can find it elsewhere:

< > ! * ' ' #
^ " ` $ $ -
! * = @ $ _
% * < > ~ # 4
& [ ] . . /
| { , , SYSTEM HALTED

Reading this aloud with proper UNIX pronunciation results in:

Waka waka bang splat tick tick hash,
Caret quote back-tick dollar dollar dash,
Bang splat equal at dollar under-score,
Percent splat waka waka tilde number four,
Ampersand bracket bracket dot dot slash,
Vertical-bar curly-bracket comma comma CRASH.

(My only objections is that I usually use 'curly-brace' rather than 'curly-bracket', which results in a slightly different rhythm.)

Tonight I'd like to get through a few assignments, since it's early and bedtime is late:

* The first couple chapters of the I-chem book, which should be review on structure, but since I haven't actually looked, I shouldn't say.
* Chapter 13 of the O-chem book. Of course, I'd also like to take detailed notes on everything I read in O-chem from here on out, so I don't think I'll start with this one.
* The Greenblatt essay for Hum, "Learning to Curse". More likely I'll start here.
* Physics. Well, Physics involves doing the problem set, not reading the text. I would like to have all my problem sets done early, since I will have much work this semester and less time to do it in. We'll see how long this resolution lasts.

That's one assignment per class, which sounds about right. Here's to getting a good chunk of that done tonight.

I'm also listening to an infinite loop of J-pop and other music in Japanese. This is not to confuse and disorient me; it's just me remembering that I don't know Japanese any more and would like to remedy that.
