Woohoo, I’ll be seeing PDQ Bach at the Kennedy Center in less than a month, on May 11th!

I started reading The Moonstone… got through the prologue. Talk about progress, eh? Maybe I’ll start chapter one after I finish blogging.

I have a math question: x+x = x*2 … x*x = x^2 … x^x = x?2

I think when I start writing my musical this summer or whenever I get around to it, I will write a companion book about my writing process of the musical and about the structure of it all. It will contain the score and an explanation of why I did everything I did. Would anyone buy such a thing? (Besides me?)

Well, I spent the day working at the library, chatting in the NSS chat room, and doing math homework, so I feel a bit unproductive. And I’ve acquired a cough and a runny nose, perhaps I have a bit of cold. Beats a stomach flu. I got an email a few days ago from my university’s health services saying that a stomach flu was going around. Better not come this way!

Two more weeks of classes! (And then exams.)

x+x=2x, not x^2.

It says x+x = x*2 … that’s an asterik, not a caret. x*2 is the same as saying 2x, but the asterik makes the operation more apparent.

Is there an operation for x to the power of itself, as the question suggests?
