Then Again, Seeing "Kinsey" With My Mom Would Have Been Pretty Awkward

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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

Sumana is back from a DC Thanksgiving. I picked up the slip opinion of Leocal v. Ashcroft at the Supreme Court, saw my old pal John Stange, sightsaw with my sister and cousin, and ate my mom's food. Fun things include the card game Uno, Spike TV's Bond movie marathon, the December 2004 issue of the Atlantic Monthly, and the Mall at night. Neat things include the new WWII memorial, the DC Metro, and the improvements in the performance in my sister's laptop thanks to my maintenance. Blah things include the price of passport photos at Kinko's ($14 for a set of two?!) and the movie Ray, which focuses too much on drug abuse and womanizing and not enough on the musical innovation that made Ray Charles a legend.
