Happy New Millennium

Not much has happened since I last posted, a millennium ago — we’re watching fireworks on TV. It is nice to see live coverage of New Year’s in the Pacific time zone instead of just seeing three-hour-old replays of Times Square.

I’m already getting tired of the references to 2001: A Space Odyssey; last year, of course, was Y2K, and 1999 had its share of implications as well (Space 1999 comes to mind, as does the Prince song (though I’ve never actually heard it)). I can’t think of anything associated with 2002, so that’s something to look forward to (already!).
