I'll go get books in the next few days, since my dad gets in tomorrow and he wants to see the MIT bookstore at some point.
My schedule, for any who care:
MW 3-4:30: Numerical Methods class (the real class)
TTh 930-11: Stochastic Processes (the audit)
Fit in 20+ hours of time at LL around that.
I've also got a backup option for the math class if the prof. appears to be Pure Evil TM in the first week, but I don't think that will happen.
And I bought a copy of the Canterbury Tales at the really cool used bookstore in Davis Square. I was looking through their classics section, wondering if I should really look for some Ovid or Aristophanes to get my classics-geek points back, and was all set to wuss out on that when I saw the Canterbury Tales and thought "hey, cool, I can be a literature geek without trying to dredge up insane verb forms, and there's a copy on the shelf for cheap b/c the pretty cloth binding has a tear". So I'm reading the Canterbury Tales for real this time (read them in a ModEnglish prose version as a high school frosh). Whee. I need to find a library with a classical commentary section. I miss having a library full of things that I love but aren't technical. The MIT libraries rock for engin/science stuff, but they're kinda sparse everywhere else. And the Antimony needs variety in her insane academic pursuits, thanks. :)
