Have fun in SLC!

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.

Steve, have fun in Salt Lake City.

Alexei's Diaryland profile reminds me of Katie, that Reed College student who was on my St. Petersburg trip:

"Hands down, the best thing you can do when you have a huge headcold and you sound terrible is to put on a Tom Waits album and sing along, because you've FINALLY got the range to do it."

I'm a little sick. Waaah. I'm feeling better than I was over the weekend, but darn it, it's Wednesday. I shouldn't be coughing and blowing my nose anymore, I feel.

From Russian class yesterday: "It's always March on Mars."
