Terrific weekend

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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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 lot of fun. I went to my sister's party with Leonard and Camille and so many of my sister's friends. There was much eating and some mall shopping, and I watched "Black Adder" for the first time and MST3K for the third time or so. I ate strawberry shortcake, possibly for the first time ever.

I am SO GLAD that I'm not in Stockton anymore. I actually do fun stuff so I don't have time to write diary entries! School starts in a week.

I can't believe I lost a friend because I was slow to reestablish contact after I was away for a while. I procrastinated, not because I didn't want to do it, but because other stuff, some important and some not, kept coming up, and I'm lazy. I'm so sorry. Please realize that it was a mistake and that I wasn't trying to send a message.

Argh. Good: I got a bunch of sleep and did two or three errands today. I also drove on the highway (580 East) for an extended period, and went to the Livermore Temple.
Bad: I alienated a friend by being stupid and lazy.
Optimistic, hopeful spin: The wound was not fatal.
