2002/4/21 Back to Rexroth. The Bureau of Public Secrets's (that apostrophe does seem really off) Rexroth Archive has actual depth.
2000/11/14 Tuesday, November 14, 19:51 CST / "If only for a little while..."
2000/10/7 Saturday, October 7, 14:11 CDT / Well, I said it might be a while.
2000/6/25 Sunday, June 25 (posted later) / Must. Have. Sleep.
2000/3/28 Tuesday, March 28, 22:55 CST / I've been doing a terrible job updating this lately. To no one's surprise.
2000/1/25 Tuesday, January 25, 21:30 CST / Where to start?
1999/10/17 Sunday, October 17, 22:20 CDT / I saw American Beauty again Friday night, followed by Fight Club...
1999/8/30 Monday, August 30, 0:57 CDT / I got home on the morning of the 17th, around 7:00, after an 11 hour bus ride. I think it's safe to say that I won't Go Greyhound again any time in the near future.
1999/6/15 Tuesday, June 15, 16:01 CDT / I got home Sunday evening. Spent the week in Breckenridge, Colorado - my dad had one of those meetings that serve as an excuse for everyone to bring their families and do expensive stuff on the company tab. Meant to update before I left, but Hardlink's servers were down (or unreachable, at any rate).
1999/5/9 Sunday, May 9, 17:58 CDT / I finished A Song for Arbonne, by Guy Gavriel Kay, the other day. It's an excellent book by any standard I can think of, though (for me) it falls a bit short of Tigana and The Lions of Al-Rassan.
1999/1/18 Monday, January 18, 14:10 CST / I won a copy of The Lions of Al-Rassan, by Guy Gavriel Kay, at last Sunday's TriviaBlitz. Finished reading it early yesterday morning, at around 4:00. It's set in a world that I understand is based on medieval Spain, on the brink of a holy war and the collapse of a civilization. It's the kind of book that defies easy classification - it's not quite a historical novel, and it's not really Fantasy - but however it gets labelled, it's excellent. (Thanks to Stephen for the recommendation, BTW.)
