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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

I had a rather eventful evening. I practiced my handball with Robin (not the same Robin with whom I studied history a week ago, for the midterm on which I got a lower score than I had on the previous midterm, despite having studied harder over less material!). Handball Robin helped me out quite a bit by getting me to relax. "It's natural. Trust yourself," Robin kept saying, but the true accomplishment was that I believed it.

Later, I had Alexei over for dinner, finishing off the salad fixins and consuming more pilaf. We had a grand time, at one point disputing "Big Rock Candy Mountain" lyrics -- it seems that every web site has a different version -- and implications.

I really should go to sleep soon, even though I don't have class till eleven tomorrow. I mean, the principle of the things. As well, I might want to go to one of Filippenko's Star Parties this week, and rested Sumana would enjoy that better than wired-tired Sumana.
