From a conversation Scott and I had slightly un-recently, speculating about how many people might come to a certain event.
[Scott] I expect it to be low, but I'm a pessimist
[me] But I'm a pessimist as well. 😉
[Scott] and this is but one reason why we are such good friends
If memory serves, this is the first communication I ever sent Scott outside of the notesfiles.

Hi, Scott. We've never personally met except on notesfiles, but I wanted
to ask you if you'd be willing to give me your impressions on living in
New York, seeing as how I'll be moving out there in a month. I gathered
from your ph that you live out in Queens; what's it like? I haven't
explored much of New York beyond Manhattan below 57th and The Bronx,
around Fordham. I'm thinking of getting an apartment after my freshman
year, and I'm wondering where's a good place to look--Manhattan is most
likely out of my price range, even with a roommate.
I'm just trying to get a feel for the place before The Big Move. Any
comments/advice/etc. would be helpful. Oh, and if you're wondering, I'll
be located on Third Ave. and 9th, in the Village.
