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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

From Crystal and Paulina: "Shopping is tough. Let's do some math."

Yesterday I saw part of Margaret Cho's I'm The One That I Want and found it disappointing. Maybe the second half is better. Then I went with Alexei to Jeana's party. Best wishes, Jeana. Contrary to expectations, there was at least one person there whom neither Alexei nor I knew.

Some Girl Genius was played. Some fun conversation was had. On the subject of brass knuckles inscribed with some abbreviation or phrase, I dismissed "Have a Nice Day" as "too Fight Club," and preferred "WWJD?".

Adam, Leonard, Shweta, Alexei, Marisa, and others have tried to cheer me up these past few days. Thanks to all of you. And a hard-to-contextualize crack that a library clerk made yesterday made me laugh harder than Margaret Cho did, so thank you, too.

A friend of mine got falsely arrested recently. But Fox cancelled "Ally McBeal," and Steve's feeling great. I'll have to write about these things sometime, especially the first one.
