Celebration: Adam found a new place to live! Yay…

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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

Celebration: Adam found a new place to live! Yay for staving off homelessness! It's in the ritzy Claremont Hills, best known to me for their nominal resemblance to Claremont Avenue, where the Alameda County Blood Bank lives (and gives the gift of life).

Adam, Josh and I feasted the occasion at Nation's (a hamburger-and-pie 24-hour diner) in El Cerrito into the wee hours of this morning. Adam, trying to describe someone: "Have you ever seen the liner notes to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon? [upon seeing me begin to write down that quotation]...This is always a horrible moment, being blogged."

I finally remembered what comes before "beggorah" if you're a stereotypical Irishman: "faith and" -- but first Google pulled up references to "Sodom and Beggorah," evidently references to degraded Dublin.

My dad spells "microfiche" as "Microfish".
