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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

My coworkers seem happy with my work. They say I'm learning pretty quick. Unfortunately, my quick learning means I don't have as many ice-breaker questions to bond with my colleagues, so I have to be social on purely social terms. Right now the potential is in lunches. South-of-Market isn't a culinary wasteland the way I've heard, and while workload and BenFranklinistic frugality sometimes compel me to brown-bag it, I'm enjoying the discovery of some cheap, nonbad restaurants with my new friends.

The upshot of all this is that yesterday I gossiped over nopales tacos with Sheerly Avni and Katharine Mieszkowski. I have arrived!
