Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo
Sat-Sun Oct 29-30
I have classes that meet on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. As a result I end up spending most of my weekends doing homework and most of my Monday and Tuesday nights freaking out and doing more last-minute work. A happy side effect of all this is that Thursdays are effectively like Fridays in my head. "You mean I only have to go to work today and I don't have any homework due? IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!"
The only drawback is that pesky actual Friday afterwards. Thursdays feel so much like Fridays that I wake up on Friday mornings expecting to have the day off.

Intel has introduced a management simulation game on their website called "The Intel IT Manager Game." One of the simulated tasks is hiring new staff. Wonder what aspect of the job it's really simulating ... all of the potential hires are male.
