Math, an Indian Word For Monastery

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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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

Finished the Haddon book. Yep, certainly something I'll be lending to Zack, Seth, and Leonard.

I watched many episodes of the PBS math variety show Square One TV and its subshow Mathnet (a Dragnet parody). One reason I sometimes wear a tie: Kate Monday wore a tie. Monday, a.k.a. Beverly Leech, has been more visible onscreen, post-Sq1TV, than has her colleague (Joe Howard). However, now I want to see DysFunktional Family even more because he's in it. Hm!

To top it all off: IMDB says that if you liked Mathnet, you'll probably like Babylon 5.
