Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2006 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.
Saw MC Frontalot live with Adam, John, John's posse, and a math postdoc who's like Cousin Vinay Meets Steve Shipman. Also met a member of the Upright Citizens Brigade comedy troupe and a neuroscience grad student. The postdoc and grad student and I reminisced about reading Amar Chitra Katha. Adam explained horrible things about his job to me and I understood them, and I learned lessons about what NOT to do when I am a software manager someday. John's posse had me to lunch in the wilds of Long Island, so I took the Long Island Railroad for the first time. I also saw a New York City rat for the first time, and screamed like a caricature in a New Yorker cartoon.
Dar Williams plays Huntington (on Long Island) this week. I'm interested in going but only if someone else is too.
