I miss my SG friends. Send me an email sometime. I'm afraid I just can't do the SG thing at school and with no internet at home yet.... Talk to you soon (and yes I've cheered up since the last time!!)

Compared to a man, it is easy for a young woman to deceive herself that she is exceptionally interesting and accomplished, because of all the attention she receives from men.

In evolutionary politics, the law per se, and specific political systems per se, are not very important compared to the ethnic distribution of much more fundamental, somewhat competing qualities, such as group loyalty and sense of fairness.

well you still didn't tell me what accent you have? Canadian, Brit or Mid atlantic?

He who insists on argument with women must expect degeneration to ad hominem attack by the end. One does not begin a boxing match with a bear, only to cry foul when one is clawed.

Glad you liked the blink effect!

"Well, I'm back," as Master Samwise said to end both versions of the great trilogy. Managed to see ROTK twice; the whole thing just gets better and better for me, including ROTK the second time around.

Back also from Christmas and all the mixed emotions of closeness to family. I always look forward to it, enjoy it at first, then look forward to moving...
