How have I gone so many years without playing ultimate frisbee? What a ridiculously fun game - ridiculously. I need people to play with when I get back home. At least seven other people have to commit to regular weekly games in the comments. (I don't think seven people total, let alone seven from where I live, read this).
The spectacular sliding catch that earned me this (as well as a point for team Social Sciences) (and a round of applause from both teams) was at least 85% worth it. I had to sleep uncovered and on my back last night because bumping or pulling the blanket across it was keeping me from falling asleep.
Sadly, 2 1/2 hours of ultimate frisbee was far and away the high point of my week in LA. I spent all of my free time today working on student evaluation letters (a time commitment that the students will never know about, let alone appreciate), and it's more of that, plus lecture, plus Sunday-evening study hall tomorrow.
