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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

Vagina Monologues v. DeCadence concert v. Homework
My class
Could I help the electricity crunch?

Tonight, I could go to the Vagina Monologues at 8 pm (free), or I could go to the DeCadence spring concert at 7:30 pm ($5), or I could stay home and do homework (free).

I've been wanting to see TVM, but I love a number of songs that DeCadence does (e.g., "Pop Nightmare" and "Mario Brothers Theme"), yet I really should get some Russian done.

I'll probably go see The Vagina Monologues. 8 pm in either 145 or 155 Dwinelle Hall at UC Berkeley.

Tomorrow will be my last day of classes before Spring Break. My DE-Cal class will finish up talking about Stephenson's The Diamond Age, and soon move on to some Asimov and James Morrow ("City of Truth"). Yesterday we talked about comparing international relations and interpersonal relations, as well as what organizing principle might make a sucessful "phyle." Example: a weird dream I had Tuesday night.

I wish I could set up some sort of equipment in my apartment to power, say, my computer or something via, say, a stationary bicycle.
