I 'ean

Someone I was in a meeting with yesterday afternoon kept saying "I 'ean" (short for "I mean") as filler, the way lots of people use "like" or "y'know" or "um." The lack of "m" was amusing; it probably reflects the fact that the words are no longer carrying any actual meaning.

Lunchtime meeting on campus today. I left a bit early so I could get a hot dog at the hot dog stand in front of Day Hall, but it wasn't there! I did see guinness_duck on that corner, though. (Hey, I recognize that blindingly blue truck!) I wonder if the Redbud Woods protesters chased the hot dog stand away; it had been there a couple of weeks ago.

So I walked into the Big Red Barn. It looked dark, but was in fact open, and I grabbed one of the pre-made sandwiches from the cooler. My "Cobb Sandwich" turned out to be a really delicious lunch! It was chicken salad, bacon, and crumbled bleu cheese on a multigrain sub roll, with lettuce and tomato.
