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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

Steve Robertson's fiancée, Alice, now has a weblog. "Wow. Getting into the fabulous world of weblogs - I feel like I should have taken some oath or something. However, now Sumana can think that I'm cool, so that's better than an oath, anyway." If there's one hard thing I've learned in the topsy-turvy world of weblogs, it's that having a weblog does not make one more or less cool. Good thing Alice was already great. She dates Steve so I don't have to!

Alice is studying law and working towards a career in helping gay and lesbian couples adopt. Go Alice! Right now she's in New York City, but soon (insha'Allah and the creek don't rise) she'll transfer to Boalt Hall Law School here in Berkeley, and that way she and Steve will both be around here even after my sister leaves for grad school. Yes, that's the important thing, replacing my sister.

I saw Steve last night for the first time in half a year. I'm quite glad we got to catch up. We had dinner at Hua Hin (?), a restaurant forever doomed to obscurity as "That great Thai place at Oxford and Bancroft with the elephant in front." If they had any sense of branding they'd change their name to Elephant Thai.
