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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

Remind me to read The Lathe of Heaven (Ursula K. Le Guin), Invisible Man (Ralph Ellison), and Maximum Light (Nancy Kress) in the next four weeks. Oh, and also my Russia reading. Ack!

I just read Cannery Row by John Steinbeck, and really liked it. I hated The Red Pony nine years ago, but then again, Steinbeck could definitely be a writer one doesn't appreciate in eighth grade.

My flatmates, mostly, are watching the World Cup and drinking beer. Alex just got a Darwin Awards book. I'm trying to speed-read Soviet history so I can give him back his books by tomorrow, when he'll return them after dropping the class. Even though it's interesting, I have trouble staying awake. I thought I was done with this!
