OMG I’m exhausted

and who is going to invent me a laptop where the screen bends far enough back so I can bend my knees while laying on the sofa? fragile p.o.s. first it can’t handle flying down the bumpiest part of Wilshire blvd in my bike’s trunk without extra padding, now it breaks because i just tried to bend it back a little further. bleh

gotta stop this and go to sleep so I can kick-ass at the Deloitte case competition the way I somehow didn’t kick ass at arm wrestling. I thought for sure I was so strong. people always tell me I am. but I’m not as strong as Kristen Poe, not even remotely. Oh well, it was fun anyway. It was also fun going to a career fair when I’m not desperate for a job. Just like in dating, I got a lot more attention because the neon “DESPERATE” sign wasn’t flashing over my head. I am discovering a hitherto untapped talent for making conversation, as long as I have something to talk/ask about. It’s so much easier than trying to drum up a conversation out of thin air. I think they schedule the whole job search thing early in the year for that very reason. May 2008 is too far off in the future to seem real, so we don’t get all nervous and worked up. Either that or I’m just too cocky for my own good. That was certainly the case with arm wrestling.

I had fun talking to people, asking them what their company is doing about sustainability. Some had awesome, impressive answers, some seemed to be playing catch-up. While us sustainability-minded folk can go to the Net Impact conference and essentially “preach to the choir” I think it’s also important we go to the dark side and preach to the heathens. They’re the ones who need to be converted.

I gotta say, I’m a little worried about this obsession with corn as a substitute for petroleum. Not enough of it, it has better uses, and well, if we make more, we need more water, land, etc. Sure, there’s trade-offs for everything, but I’d like to see what other plants people are innovating around…

ok, off to bed to dream of pitching the most awesome case…
