just a note to say that the only comments i delete are my own; other people have the ability to delete their own comments as well -- the expression "deleted by author" means "author" of that particular quote.
also, i have received some requests (and a meme, i think) to post about specific things not related to me or the blog, but just for my imaginary internet friends in general to read. i just wanted to say that i will get to them, i'm just really not on top of things.
i have yet to get a california driver's license, for example. i've been here four years.
