Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.

Camilla and her friends are watching The Fountainhead: The Movie. I'm listening to They Might Be Giants, "Don't Let's Start." I have the better end of the deal.

Seventh Heaven was riotous more in execution than in concept. Notable: Ben and Kevin are Catholic!, Father Camden's manic [panic] moments, and his mind game with Ruthie. Here's the sad, sad thing: next week, just in time for May sweeps, a Very Special Episode on terrorism and dying for one's country. Camille, Mike, if you watch it I will, but not otherwise. I mean, really: you saw the preview. I couldn't stand to watch that thing alone.

Steve: Congratulations to you and Alice upon your declared status of boyfriend and girlfriend! Sorry I got on your case back in September.

I got commencement tickets today. All these procedural niceties, and the cheer that the organizers try to associate with them, remind me of high school. And, just as in high school, I do want to make the most of and savor these last few weeks, but I'm also on automatic pilot, which is another way to enjoy such beautiful spring weather and its relaxing and energizing effect on my friends.

Good night.
