Another of my last days in TV programming is slowly passing. Since my trainee and soon-to-be-replacement, a nice lad named Jake, has already mastered the art of creating a ratings comparison database in Excel, I've left him to prepare the July 2003/2004 report while I explore blogger settings I haven't yet had time to discover. I tried implementing a search toolbar, but for some reason which I can't fathom, it performs searches on www.mormolyke.comblog instead of www.mormolyke.com/blog. Very odd.

You will now notice e-mail links at the bottom of each post, in case you have the inexplicable desire to immortalize my entries privately via e-mail.

I scored 102% in my third Spanish test, bringing my average to 101.83%. My teacher wrote "Wow!" in the margin. I still haven't lost a single percentage point on any piece of writing I have handed in for English Comp.

This week, two long-lost friends contacted me completely out of the blue. Tibi, whose comment you will see below if you're one to be bothered reading comments, is my oldest virtual friend. We met in an IRC chat room in 1997. I believe we insulted each other for a few hours as a litmus test. You can see his website here.

To my delight, Seema Khanna, one of my dearest friends from college, also sent me an e-mail a few days ago, and stirred wonderful memories. I had tried to Google her a couple of times in the last year or so, but apparently there are far more Seema Khannas in the world than one might imagine. She is studying film-making in Barcelona. I am stunned, and I am so happy for her.

And now, I have a question.

Provided that all goes well at my Green Card interview on November 3, and provided that Matt earns enough money for us to save for travel, should we:

(a) Drive around the USA, or
(b) Backpack in northern Europe, where I will possibly meet up with Seema?

Both are equally appealing to me. I'll let the question fester for a while and see what is left of it in a few months.
