Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
I got to hang out with Jeana a few hours ago. Thought-provoking as always. (Neat factoid: She now knows a guy who knows Eve of InPassing fame!)
Today, in handing in my test, I got back not only my term paper (B, better than I deserve), but also the pop quiz my TA gave a month or so back. He gave us the option of writing poems or drawing pictures instead of trying to answer questions we found impossible, so I did. And he gave me a ten out of ten for creativity. Very neat.
When Jeana and I walked into Smart Alec's and I ordered a small order of french fries, I happened to still be carrying the quiz. My cashier asked, "Is that an A grade?" I, surprised, answered in the affirmative. He said, "then it's free," and stamped my paper with the "A+" Smart Alec's logo.
