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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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 used to read a Calvin and Hobbes every day, off But that habit lapsed, and today I read some Watterston for the first time in months (not counting the strips that I see next to Bizarro and Dilbert and the like pasted to office doors at the U). At first, Calvin sounded a lot like Leonard, but then I got to visualizing him more as me. I didn't particularly see any resemblance between Hobbes and anyone in my life. My better self, maybe.
