1. Oh, wow: 10:03

Random Emacs symbol: file-cache-minibuffer-complete - Command: Complete a filename in the minibuffer using a preloaded cache.

2. Live music at the Linux Caffe: 19:12

There are few things in life that are better than finding out that one of your favorite cafes has live music on the night that you feel you've accomplished enough work to just kick back, relax, read a book, and enjoy life.

Yes, life is good. Life is very good.

Random Emacs symbol: imenu-generic-expression - Variable: The regex pattern to use for creating a buffer index.

3. Gotta check out wesabe: 20:55

Random Emacs symbol: eshell-var-load-hook - Variable: *A list of functions to call when loading `eshell-var'.

5. Friday night at a cafe: 21:52

You gotta love this life. Friday night at a cafe, hot chocolate with my best friend, plenty of good books to read. I just finished breezing through Information Anxiety 2. And I've just stumbled across "What Should I Do With My Life?", by Po Bronson.

All we need now is a comfy couch...

Life is good.

Random Emacs symbol: prog2 - Function: Eval FORM1, FORM2 and BODY sequentially; value from FORM2.
