The Summit Talks Continue

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2005 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.

- It's about time we take you back to the station, Evelyne. At least if you want to catch the 9.32 train.

They must have rehearsed that part of the script several times, including bending the country's geography.
