Luckiest Girl in the World, exhibit #5673914612 [Jul. 21st, 2009|12:19 pm]
Lindsey Kuper

After a long, tedious day of editing, I write a message at four in the morning:

From: Lindsey Kuper
To: Alex Rudnick
Date: Tue, Jun 21, 2009 at 3:57 AM
Subject: M-x find-passive-sentences

...is what I'm dreaming of.

In your professional opinion, how hard is automatic passive voice detection? Are there open-source tools that already do it? [...]

I go to bed.

Ten minutes ago, he calls me and says, "I can have that for you. Today. ...So, do you really need this, or are you just trying to turn me on?"

You really have the best init.el ever. Thanks!

(I think we were talking about doing something a little more robust. But this does strike me as a diminishing-returns sort of thing.)

Nice. You're pretty much going to have to start transcribing everything that you and Alex say to one another. I can't imagine it not being as hilarious as this is. :)

If I could draw, there would already be a comic.

That's fortunate, because starting tomorrow, we're going to be together rather a lot!

(Key to new house acquired. Paperwork finished. SQUEE.)

Re: Wooo!

Oh, man, I have to look nice! Maybe I'll wear the dress for that, too.

PROTIP: "5673914612" coincidentally happens to have ten digits, so the Android web browser is giving me the option to dial it or add it to my contacts. Fantastic.
