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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

Happy New Year.

I spent the 2003-2004 liminal time watching a lot of TiVoed TV with Leonard (Reading Rainbow, Good Eats, and some surprisingly palatable Star Trek: Voyager; I have grudgingly accorded Voyager canon status) and transcribing interviews I did in October with Christopher Kimball and Alton Brown. Christopher Kimball says "actually" in every sentence.

This month, a few friends of friends are moving to town for school. One of them, Lisa, stayed with me for a few days in mid-December while arranging housing. She loves Trader Joe's. I think she's more excited about living near a Trader Joe's than she is about her SFSU fellowship.

The TiVo gave Leonard and me a wonderful New Year's gift: the Reading Rainbow where LeVar Burton takes you behind the scenes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Outtakes! Crossoverness!

It's that time of year; ants think my bathroom is a neat-o place to be. Ack!
