“Uh, hi everybody, uh, this is Peter and I'm trying out this uh phone
post message. Seems pretty neat.

Um, I don't know. I'm a little nevous about tomorrow to tell you the
truth. I've never done anything like this kind of work before but I
think I can handle it. But, who knows? Uh,um, I'm definately going to
be able uh, I'm really happy that I'm going to be able to make it to
um the
little skippy Thanksgiving get together thing. Which should be a whole
lot of fun. Um, I don't know what else. Kind of excited uh to be
starting working really. Don't have much to say about that.

Earlier, I was helping out Chris with his uh, with his Calculus
homework. Heh, Kind of funny, little flash back back to related rates
problems. An you know, nice simple, simple problems not like the uh
evil differential equations contour integrals over a complex plane
crap. Nice, easy stuff. I like that.

Um, I'm sure that I, I, you know,I'm not sure I'm even going to download
this once I'm done with it. Because I'm just, I idon't like the sound
of my own voice to be quite frank on that. I sure most of you doubt
that by the amount I talk but, but I don't. I don't like the way it
sounds when it's recorded, I sound kinda stupid I don't like to think
of myself as stupid. A little. Well, I am, but so is everyone else so
it's fair.

I uh, turned on the transcriptions for everybody to do. I'm not really
sure what that means. Um, so it will, you know, be painfully obvious
once i post it and I'll feel really stupid about musing about it right
now. As I said I'm really excited about all that. Um maybe we'll be
able to find some neat technique. Uh, I can see some really neat things
coming out of this phone post thing. Um well see what happens.
Uh, I'll talk, well, that's just about it.
I mean uh, called my grandpa today I'm going to be able to see him
when I go to Thanksgiving with my family back up in uh in North Andover
at my aunt's house. Which is always a lot of fun especially because I
get to see like my grandpa and my aunt Kathy and my cousins andy and angela and
their significant others with is always a joy. Uh oh, get to see Noel
which is Andy's kid. Should be nice.


So far I'm not yet missing rit although I must admit I am missing
some of the people. You know like the people who are at home and not
online. or some other thing.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank ed and his family for
driving me to the airport yesterday. Yesterday? Oh, yeah, guess it was
yesterday. I really appreciate that.

That's about it.

See ya.”

I sound less stupid than I used to.

you actually do sound much more mature on the phone, but then again, I haven't heard you since summer, so my memory could be off. Anyway, you don't sound bad
23rd-Nov-2003 10:52 pm (UTC)
Good luck tomorrow.

You sound fine.
24th-Nov-2003 08:39 am (UTC)
How do you do that anyway?
24th-Nov-2003 01:56 pm (UTC)
Do you have a paid account?

If you do, check the recent posts on news and you will find out.

I have no idea what you're saying. But I can hear you, but I can't understand it.


Post a transcript for me?

zsparke beat me to it.

mucho thanks to zsparke!

And peter, no you don't sound dumb. But you use the word "uh, um" alot.

That's okay, I use the word "so, yeah" etc. a lot.

I heard that from my speech therapist, hehehe...

But I think everybody feels dorky when they listen to the sound of their own voice.

Maybe I'll try out the phone post someday.

That's the last one of _those_ you're going to get for free from me!

I think it would be good if transcriber #1 got the jist of the message, #2 refined it and so on.

and it does some messed up formatting shit...which pisses me off. But someone else can fix it.

Melissa is awesome as usual.

I am not worthy.

*big gigundo HUGS* I was happy to do it...until it started to drive me crazy with all the pausing, typing, replay, type for the time greater than30min and less than 2hours.

But I am happy I got to help you out a little.

I was very sad, when I realized yesterday that if you are co-oping in NYC this quarter, I will not be able to see you in my trip up there. Sadness. It was really nice to hear your voice from the phone post though. Very neat. I think I shall have to call you sometime. :-)

Talk to you later
