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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.
Last night Zack had dinner with me and helped me move a great deal of furniture, and then was so exhausted that he slept over rather than go home at midnight. He singlehandedly disassembled my futon, for example, and we moved my computer table and microwave to my new place and the futon and a small table to my sister's place. (Packing his car took ingenuity, I don't mind telling you.) My roommates jokingly complained, "Look, the phantom roommate!" when I came in. Well, in a few days they'll have no reason to make that complaint.
So now my apartment feels much emptier, and the sight of bare carpet reminds me that not only is my residence here ephemeral, but so is all existence. I wish I didn't feel quite so disoriented; I'm beginning to feel homeless, even more so than usual.
Adam and Zack both noticed the halo around the moon last night. And, sure enough, meteorologists (Expert Folks) told me this morning that rain's a-comin'.
I saw Anirvan and Nandini last night, too. Anirvan said that he's now reading my journal, now that it's not on kuro5hin, because this (NewsBruiser interface makes reading so much easier than does the K5 interface. Thanks, Leonard!
