Geeks Great and Small

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.

Adam is staying at my place for a bit, as he's between apartments on his way to New York City. It's barrels of fun. Yesterday we saw the awesome spelling bee documentary Spellbound (Flash site), which we both really liked. So many smart kids! And so many of them were Indians! (IMDB solves a mystery: "...there was a total of 165 hours of material, and that they originally followed 13 kids. Dropping five of them was a very painful decision....")

Then Leonard came over and we all had dinner and they played songs on Adam's guitar for hours. How extremely pleasant it was, I can't convey.

Today I'm at work, grinding through the weekend backlog. However, I am cheered by the fact that I get to call Andrew Leonard "Andrew," and that from the back he really resembles Adam.
