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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.
Leonard and I watched recorded episodes of House, M.D. last night. Hugh Laurie affects a grumpy US accent; otherwise I'd probably deem it trash. As it is I'm calling it my "guilty pleasure" because otherwise I have to come up with a rationale for wasting 44 minutes of my life on bad medical mystery.
Leonard and I also watched The Offspring, a Star Trek: The Next Generation episode. (Data, alone among NextGen crewmembers, cares/knows about India; he names his daughter "Lal", or "Beloved," and notes that Data's Day takes place during Deepawali.) The third-to-last scene set us bawling. So sad!
