5/9/16 What I just wrote to StubHub

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

They foolishly asked me how my last transaction went. It took me days to figure out which platform would allow me to complete the listing process. In the meantime, I missed the opportunity to sell two of my three tickets. Your website as accessed on Firefox on a desktop Mac (OS 10.6.8) did not allow […]

4/30/10 danger + opportunity ≠ crisis

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

The Chinese word for crisis doesn’t consist of the words “danger” and “opportunity.” Sorry to burst your bubble. A Professor of Chinese Language and Literature told me so. Those who are as pedantic as I will want to read more.

4/26/03 a sine wave

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

I pick the strangest times to stay up all night. I also pick the strangest times to update this site. It’s somewhat foolish for me to attempt to document my emotions here, since they change constantly. (You’ve seen a sine wave, right?) I also know that sometimes people that I actually know visit this site. […]

4/14/03 suffer this vagueness

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Nights that have been entirely too late, unsurprisingly. I can’t really explain why I’m feeling dark at this point. I have been cruising at a […]
