Aiee, I have to clean my apartment and cook enough…
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.
Aiee, I have to clean my apartment and cook enough for 20 people or so on a day this week.
Gotta go soon. Always demands on me! Always!
Oh, and I realized that I got my martyrdom from my mom and dad, and that I got my constant attitude of "can't trust assumptions, especially about the future, can't plan on anything, the world might end tomorrow" from moving around so much when I was a kid (New Jersey-->Pennsylvania-->Missouri-->California), and also my father's (and, to a lesser extent, my mother's) lack of compunction about interrupting or canceling some activity I do/did or want(ed) to do so that I can/could do something else they want(ed) me to do.
