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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

Melissa: You should eat hamburgers every day.
Me: Wasn't that a play? No, that was "Christmas Every Day."
Leslie: Elmo did that, didn't he? He said he wanted it to be Christmas every day.
Me: That's based on a play from the fifties.
Leslie: I'm very disappointed that Elmo's not doing original work.
