Good Idea, Bad Idea

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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

Leonard kindly gave me a belated Christmas gift yesterday, making it a New Year's gift. He had surreptitiously transferred the first few minutes of several episodes of Law and Order from the TiVo to a DVD, creating an anthology of all the "du du du du du Oh My God A Body" moments (my favorite part of Law & Order). It was fantastic and amazing and I can't thank him enough.

I needed cheering up because I spent most of New Year's Day in bed, resting my knee. Returning from a New Year's party, just before getting into the car of a kind acquaintance for a ride home, I'd fallen and hit my knee on some broken pavement. Ow. It didn't break, but it's still not quite right. I wish I'd had a pratfall instead; my prat at least has some cushioning.
