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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

I told my father that I'm dating Leonard. Dad wants me to just be friends with him, and worries that I'll get a bad reputation and that some good Indian boy will later refuse to marry me because of this "impediment." He and I have reached rather an impasse, which is better than I'd feared. He's still willing to converse with me, which is great.

So, now that I'm not afraid of my dad finding out, I can mention on my weblog that I'm dating Leonard. Hey, everybody, I'm dating Leonard! He's great!
