Next week, being Turkey Week, Gem decided we should go visit her parents. So next Tuesday morning Gem and I head to DIA to fly to Portland, visit Powells City of Books, feast on vegi-turkey on Thursday, and fly back Saturday night. I can pay US$10 for the privilege of using AT&T's wireless Ethernet at DIA; I'll see how bored I get.

I keep thinking that I'm going to come up with some brilliant content to write, but nothing's coming to mind. So I'll call this good enough here.

Ok, well, the most obvious problem with [new years resolution
about getting a girlfriend] is that the intended outcome relies on
variables which are out of my control. It's a matter of chance,
luck, being in the right place at the wrong time, what have you.
Obviously, it also relies on the willful participation of
another human being. Since the only people we control are
ourselves, making resolutions -- promises to ourselves -- which
require the involvement of others, who may or may not want any
part of the game, is like sitting at home and cheering a
football team, and then saying "We won! We won!" when in fact
you had absolutely nothing to do with any of it. Or something
like that.
