Had the first lecture of developmental psychology aka kiddie-psych. It’s gonna be the holiday I hoped for compared to the other two brain-mashers. In fact it includes lectures on fondue cookery, making wall hangings out of tiny plastic beads and proper grooming – I get to wear a blouse, skirt and bobby-socks on that day. ooo-la-la.
The library at uni went sik on O’Reilly books. They must’ve had 40 newies there — PHP cookbook, Python cookbook, java and XSLT, maintaining mailing lists and even a Linux book. All of it was web app. related and all but one really small reference book for windows was open source in subject matter. Not that I really have any time to look at or borrow any. Ah well.
I’m a bit disturbed by how different this page appears in internet explorer compared to everything else. May have to backstep to the carbon-vanilla layout that it came with. Go Jan Ullrich in the tour de france, go. I’m sure lance armstrong is a nice person but he’s had his turn and wherever possible I’ll always barrack for a non-yankee over a yankee. I can relate to Ullrich disappearing into the wilderness for a couple of years too. Actually, lance armstrong can speak french. And so can that big-footed australian swimmer guy – thorpe. It seems everyone can but me — gotta do something about that.
I bought a pair of shoes from the op shop. They were two dollars each. At first I thought the were corrective in nature, but it’s just that they had really thick soles and I’m not used to that. Thick soles make for a pretty sweet ride — it’s like suspension. It’s strange how foot-memory is so short. They can put on a pair of shoes that immediately feel shocken but after a day or two they get used to it and forget that they ever had anything better.
Hey Devlopmental Psych!? I did that.. no doubt you will look at the likes of Piaget and Skinner.. and the nature vs nuture thing.
Yes indeed – there was a little of it last year and both of them came up, as did Noam ‘Chompers’ chomsky.
Long time no see, Jay! :^)
I was almost going to email you to see how you were going. Mowabi-land has been very quiet.
Yeah Noam is an interesting one.. among other things (quite controversial things), doesn’t he have some ideas about language development?
As for the quietness, I have been moving house… an activity which I detest! It’s been keeping me busy
yep, linguistics was his thing before politics.

Kiddie Pysch. Hehe, that sounds cute. Do you get to sit in a circle and eat your glue?
I thought so.
Hehe. nah but it’s okay to go have a nap in the corner if it all gets to be too much, which it undoubtedly will.
Nice to see you back in the land of the virtually-living too, Ben. :^)
