July 10, 1998
I got in to the MEng program at MIT. This means that I stay in school an
extra year (yay!) and just a Masters degree (yay!). So my current long-term
plans are to stay put for another two years, work on lots of computer stuff,
and then be an overpaid computer programmer for a while, and then take over
the world. I'm still planning to remember my friends, although I don't have
a very good memory, so I may write them down instead.
I've just gone across the continent with Vicka, going through Canada,
starting at Niagra Falls. We dug up amethysts in Ontario, were bored by cows
in Manitoba and Saskattoon, sat in a hot spring in Alberta, drove through
mountains in Brittish Columbia, surprised the customs guy coming into
Washington (coming to Seattle from Mass. through Canada?). The best food
between here and there is in Syracuse, NY; an Indian restaraunt in the
little bit of town that actually has real stuff in it and not just big
lobbies and parking garages. The Country Inn in Savano, B.C. is actually
worth it, despite being twice as expensive as little roadside places, and
the chain motels suck compared to the little local places.
I'm back in Boston, after an entirely uneventful flight. The book I was
reading wasn't really that interesting, but aside from that nothing was
notable. Tomorrow work week begins, and then rush week, and then school, so
I may not be online, despite being in the area.
I was in a photo in the print version of an article about polyamory in the
Boston Phoenix. Neither the picture, nor the caption under it appears in the
web version, however. This gave me a good excuse to give various people more
information than they would normally want about my personal life.
