Once Upon A Time, or, Many Meetings Redux

Went in today to meet at Cardwell Hall with one of the ITR-KMC principal investigators (Abdelkader Kara) along with zengeneral and istari_ala. Later zengeneral joined me for a meeting at Throckmorton Plant Sciences Center with the FIBR folks, Steve Welch and Judy Roe.

Then I went outside and promptly slid on the ice until I fell to my hands and knees, dropping my notebook computer (Numerramar) in its bag. A hollow practice tube might make a nice prop for bokken-like katas, but it won't hold you up on the ice. I kept slipping and going back down, couldn't get up for about thirty seconds, and finally used my palms to melt two spots I could push down on and get my shoes wedged into.
Can we please get a little more salt on the sidewalks?

Tonight's film will be...
Ever After

I considered Huozhe (aka To Live, aka Lifetimes), but you know what? Zhang Yimou annozzles me.

All's well
Wasn't hurt... just felt this inexorable downward slide... I had a good 10-15 seconds to think about the best way to fall, but no traction at all.

I actually pulled a Wile E. Coyote for a moment - it was like running on a treadmill!

Unfortunately, the steam heating system based in the powerplants (both conventional and nuclear) does not reach Nichols Hall. That defrosts the sidewalks in a number of areas.

I should have mentioned that this was outside Throckmorton.

Actually, I added that after your question.

Ouch and whoa to the ice.

Ever After
I could tell you that... but you really want me to lie?

I'd seen a small snippet of the ending (like the final 2 minutes)... of course, it's rather familiar subject matter.

And I see you aren't familiar with the Rock of banazir (the one I've lived under for two decades)...
