The Journal Paper is Published...
Jan. 24th, 2005 @ 01:47 pm
The journal paper I have been working on
for at over 4 years has finally been published
in ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology
! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
Thanks. It's very nice to have this paper behind me. My advisor, who has been working on this paper for over 7 years, is probably more happy than I am.
Congratulations. You must feel very "academic" right now. :)
Thank you. Mostly I feel relieved that the paper is done and I never have to read it again. :)
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
I think reveilles
might have some problems with that.
That's too bad. I'll slip her a sleeping pill in her soy cocoa and she'll never know. Muahahahahahaha!
you could just give her non soy cocoa...very distracting i think...
know that under that innocent façade lurks a mind capable of such unspeakable evil?
P.S. I have chocolate.
and I have both known for a long time that silly_lilly
is a troublemaker. However, I did not think that she would even propose such an evil action.
So what happens if reveilles
gets non-soy cocoa slipped to her? Is it lactonite, like kryptonite, where she loses her geek superpowers and suddenly has a pressing need to stand around a coffee machine discussing the prospects for the week's football ga... never mind.
proposing is very different from carrying out :-D
He's the one that wants to slip her a knockout drug!!!
You know, the person who proposes the evil is eviller than the person who carries out the evil. "I was just following orders!"
Besides, given that I am five megametres and two feet of snow away from her soy cocoa, the slipping of knockout drugs into her drink presents some obvious logistical differences. Hence, my direction to jcobleigh
to come to MY arms, rather than my going to his!
large bodies of water separate me
hey you can be just as evil by carrying out orders!
i think if jcobleigh
actually does it he will be evil
eviller too because he's married to her!
she would ask, "what innocent façade?"
well actually she'd probably just say "yes I KNOW! ARGH!"
b-b-b-but do i really look innocent?
P.S. prove it! mail me some!
You are the very picture of innocence. Truly a case of a wolf in sheep's clothing. :-P
I would mail you some but you might not be appreciative enough, plus that whole mailing-food-internationally thing tends to put the kibosh on any shipment of chocolate that might be forthcoming. Not to mention that Trinidad & Tobago are obviously a haven for terrorists intent on destroying the U.S. chocolate industry. Now, I could probably mail you some lutefisk, would you prefer that instead?
I'm a WOLF!!!
i'm sounding even eviller
this is getting better and better.
now i just have to figure out naive!
if i were sent chocolate i would be soooooooooooooo appreciative
yes i would compose odes to dave :-D
i'd probably...well...it'd kill me i'm sure! :-(
Another logistical issue... first, not having an address (though I suppose I could address it to "Evil Wolf Laylaa, Trinidad Somewhere"), and second, the fact that it would probably melt and be quite disgusting. A country with no chocolate would rank as a Fourth-World country... even Bangladesh has chocolate!
Lutefisk is cod that has been soaked in lye and salt and dried. When you reconstitute it, it smells like cleaning solvent and turns this incredibly unappealing grey colour and develops an even less appealing gelatinous texture which is guaranteed to put anyone in full possession of his/her faculties straight off his/her feed for weeks.
well if all you want is an address...:-)
first, i don't like fish
second...if it puts people off their food why are you offering it to me?
last semester i was practically there you know...food...off...food...grrr...food..
ps we have chocolate
we produce it and maybe expoprt it for some other use...don't know if we get that here to use :-(
I love you guys.
was deemed a "troublemaker" the first day that she arrived in our lab--and by another graduate student, not us. It seems to be the general first impression... :)
i don't know that it was the first day
if it's the general first impression, then i so do not appear innocent. ..if it was a second impression now then maybe...!!
You must have had your 'innocent' face on when I met you, then. Actually you hardly said anything, I thought you were shy but then I realised I knew better. :-P
see, i "do" shy.
and then of course, you are the infamous (and scary) dave so...shy and retiring was a safe plan!
I'm not scary! Fat people are jolly. Well, most fat people are jolly. However, since I prefer to think of myself as "zaftig", I'm not required to be jolly. Also, I'm too weird to be jolly. But I'm definitely not scary. Unless you piss me off...
Unless you piss me off...
I think we were lead to believe by parties who shall remain nameless that well...you well...hmmm...i'm too scared to say it :-D
Let's just say that a certain unnamed party gave me the impression that you were scary and fiendish!
<ACCENT TYPE="Brooklyn Mafia">"Certain unnamed parties" better watch out, we don't want nobody should get hoyt or nothin', be hahrubble if he was to be sleepin' at da bottom of da cookie dough... </ACCENT>
especially if it was oatmeal raisin cookie dough
his wife might eat him!
