You Never Expect Burlesque

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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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 is back! The era of buying airplane tickets two days in advance is (I hope) over!

Last night I saw Dara and her friend Amina, and we stayed up too late talking; now my body has its revenge! Leonard is making sickbed soup but with lime and chili instead of HotLime sauce. I emailed in sick to work. When I called to check in, my boss reminded me that Fog Creek has unlimited sick days to make sure I get well fast instead of working sick and infecting others. Oh yeah, I work for the best company ever, sometimes I forget.

On Saturday night, I went to see Slightly Known People, and their guest, The Bitter Poet, recited funny poems. And his sidekick did burlesque. I was not prepared.
