A Friendly Request

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2004 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.

People of the world! If you are not resourceful, or if you plan on being a nuisance in some other way, please do not interact with me today. As Alice said in a slightly different context, in response to "Do you need a hug?": "No, I need a shotgun."

OK, I am better, partially because I am wearing a toothpastefordinner shirt ("if I had a dollar for every time I had sixty cents, I would be Canada", black on gold).
