I have friends

The winner of the 2005/2006 2nd annual Race To Berkeley is Regan Yuen.

Hailing from rainy Vancouver, BC, the newly-minted UBC Computer Science graduate is taking three months to travel the globe before starting work at IBM. The first stop on her Regan 'Round the woRld tour is San Francisco, and free lodgings in the Fortress of Solitude here in Berkeley.

For the second straight year, the winner of the Race To Berkeley had to face adversity in the form of a delayed flight. She also had to deal with a mixup with transit here, stemming from the general less-good-ness of the light rail system here.

Also for the second straight year, Jowen Yeo jumped to an early lead in the Race, only to watch it disappear due to extenuating circumstances (first, a trip around the continent; then getting a job).

In celebration of her victory, we went to the Sizzler and learned, again, that the only thing worth getting at the Sizzler is the salad bar.

Congratulations to the winner, and to the rest of you, I hate you all so much.
