Liveblogging the Glenbrooks, Part 2

Part 2 of my liveblog.

7:12PM - No octafinals and one final silly adventure back with Leighton Huch later, Glenbrooks is over. As an additional note, I'd like to acknowledge Eric Thurm's fictional nation of Afsanderstan, where all the weapons are plagiarized.

4:56PM - So the kid I'm judging for isn't breaking. Now all I need is for me not to judge octafinals and I'm out of here.

4:42PM - "I'm excited by children. I sometimes get a little too excited and engage in horseplay." - Eric Thurm

4:41PM - This liveblog has kind of just degenerated into a series of quotes. Also, they've started running out of food in the judges' lounge.

3:47PM - "ERIC THURM IS NOT MY FRIEND" - Leighton Huch

12:08PM - Everyone keeps talking about Nazis.

10:54AM - I HAVE FINALLY PICKED UP A FULL ROUND'S WORTH OF BALLOTS. In also some probable irony, I am judging in the orchestra room. I'm pretty sure this is the viola section. My life is filled with repeating motifs.

10:28AM - Louis Balocca: There should be a UChicago hunting RSO.
Chris Catteron: That'd be a gang, dude.

10:13AM - Leighton Huch: "Am I happier than yesterday? Yes, but there's still time for things to turn out differently."

7:30AM - Ha ha. I have no round 5, so I can saunter in.
