Thursday November 27, 2003. A day of waiting. It will probably be some time next week when I find out how careful I'll need to be in running my life. Tomorrow is when I'll probably take the test which will show whether I have diabetes. If I do: "If you can't be careful, be organized. If you can't be organized, be careful."

I made a list of the Hugo and Nebula winners which really interest me. I wanted to see what they have in common. I think I've found it, though I haven't defined it yet.

I'm curious about whether other people would see the same pattern. Here's the lists. There are fewer Nebula winners than Hugo winners; and not just because the Nebulas started more than a decade after the Hugos did.
