I am, I was...  
I just hung up my new A.I. poster. Adding another level to the title: Did you know "ai" is the Japanese word for love?

And many thanks to you for providing me with said poster.

It looks as if, however, that is the most productive thing I will be doing tonight.

in chinese, it is ai as well.

the fourth tone is used. i asked my professor why fourth tone-- why make ai sound like you're cursing. forceful and gutteral. he said-- love is considered to be such a powerful emotion that you have to use the most powerful tone.

i think he's right.
