If anyone has not yet heard, Grant and Valerie are engaged. I found out via a cryptic word puzzle from GrantI managed to unscramble the word "engaged" but, as I apparently can't think outside the box these days, I completely failed to grasp the implication. The solemn processional is planned for October '03.
Metameat also loves Hannah/ravenousplankton, who has turned out to be a treasure trove of info on the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center. This is good, since they didn't let me inside when I was thereeverything is hyper-secured, I guess because Saddam might try to steal cancer or something. She also has all sorts of exciting photosnotably a Budapest section with a Unicum subway museum. I tried Unicum precisely once, and it took a half hour to get the taste out of my mouth.
