Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2014 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.

After we watched The Ref and ate our Thai takeout, I web-sought a fire log video and started playing it. "It's amazing that people make these," I said. Beat. "I am sort of waiting for Mike Gravel to show up at any moment, though."

A few minutes later: "Is there a problem with the net? Because the video paused. And I didn't stop the fire."
