Wow, I actually won at chess against pete. There was this wacky rook-and-a-bishop for two-rooks trade I set up that let me promote not one but two pawns.

And mrhappypizza is here. He seems like a cool guy. Ellen and carol have swept him off to some movie-watching not-sleeping-yet fate. Me, I think I will now indulge in the luxury of elective unconsciousness that my SO-less state affords me. I still want my Ellie Arroway, don't get me wrong.

It's amazing how you can fall in love with a book character. I love Ellie Arroway as well, and I love her most for taking apart that radio, for trying to teach the alphabet to the ants. It's amazing how you can fall in love with strangers and fit them to your preconceptions and ideals you've created from those wonderfully written books. Contact still ranks as my all time favorites. To me, it's a book more about religion and science and faith than anything else... And as an atheist, clear views on the subject are hard to come by...
