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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

Andy implicitly and Leonard explicitly urge me to upgrade my weblog software, so I will, soon. Format changes and service disruptions may occur.

Today's realization: I no longer feel that moment of disorientation where I arrive at work and have to switch from "customer" perspective to "employee" perspective. I'm already in worker mode when I get there.

Now about to read Dave Barry's new novel, Tricky Business, and Michel Faber's well-reviewed The Crimson Petal and the White (I hear it's akin to Crichton's The Great Train Robbery, which I liked).
