Three Weeks to Leningraduation

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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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 miss NPR Morning Edition.

I'm going to attempt to visit a club on Tuesday night. Yes, the aforementioned Money Honey. In Russian, if translated literally, Dyengi Myod. Not quite the same effect.

I find myself not actually making jokes, sometimes, but rather design specs for jokes.

If my love were a Supreme Court case, what case would it be?

Who came up with perforations to make it easier to tear off paper? Genius!
