T minus 8 hours

Orientation starts tomorrow, and I have the first-day-of-school jitters like you wouldn't believe.

I'm at the library working on problems from the 2006 foundations qualifying exam, having now gotten through the first six chapters of Sipser. So far, I've written up answers for problem 1, problem 3, and, uh, half of problem 2. Merely getting this far has taken all week, a lot of scratch paper, and a ludicrous amount of Diet Coke.

I don't think I get to bring notes to the exam. Remind me to get the three conditions of the pumping lemma tattooed on my arm sometime before 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

The custodial staff are coming in and saying "Good morning" to one another. It must be time to go home.
