Exciting Stuff!

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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'm learning that when I only steep my tea for the recommended period, and don't just leave the bag in there till I've finished drinking, it does taste better.

Even though I did not derive any extra financial benefit from free BART this morning, the sight of rows turnstiles with their gates wide open made me unreasonably happy. As Leonard reminded me, "you're a free rider!"

When people call to do administrative work on their Salon Premium subscriptions, I tell them about the free magazines, and sometimes both the caller and I get pretty excited.

And today Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood visited a soup factory.
