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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

I carried a fire extinguisher on the BART this weekend, because Seth gave it to me during the intermission of the Mass. I doubled over laughing when he presented it to me, but I really am quite grateful for it; now my house has a fire extinguisher!

At least three people on the BART actually said to me some variant of "Hey, you've got a fire extinguisher!" to which there's no really good response besides "Yes, I do."
