M-word break

The winter break of the so-called millennium is fast approaching (aaargh, we mentioned it), and some of you have noticed and made some pretty wild plans. But only a few of you seem really worried about just another calendar date. Far more scary and far less airy is the prospect of final exams. Pass or die. And then go home and recover.

Since Im convinced the world is going to end, I talked some of my friends into going to Amsterdam and London with me over the break. Were arriving in London on the 31st just in time to join in the millennium madness in Trafalgar Square. Its kind of exciting to think that I will be experiencing 2000 before everyone here at least for a few hours.
