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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

These last few nights I've been dreaming West Wing characters. Yet consultation between G.W. Bush and Leo McGarrity is less plausible than last night's invention, a marriage between Britney Spears and Sam Seaborn. You see, McGarrity and Bush simply do not exist in each other's universes, whereas Spears probably does exist in the West Wing universe. After all, Barenaked Ladies does, as we saw a few weeks back.

I told Michelle about these dreams. She suggested I might be watching too much West Wing. I only watch it once a week! More plausible: my subconscious adores the liberal wish-fulfillment fantasy, and won't let go.
