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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

On Sunday I had my first bike accident. I didn't brake in time and skidded to a fall. Just a little scrape, no blood, but still embarrassing. I still really like biking, but I should study the map of Berkeley bike lanes to find better and less hair-raising ways to get around & about. Soon I'll have enough strength and steering ability to signal stops and turns with my left arm, as per law.
