Boredom Alert! The info below is only for those lost souls who cling to ancient days because somehow the present and/or future just isn't exciting enough for them. I'm not one of those people, it goes without saying.

I know there may be some misguided soul out there who longs for the OLD days of yore, or something like that, and you may have been hunting for all your old friends. Until now I've ignored you and have stayed discreetly invisible on the Internet. That doesn't mean I haven't been active on it though. My several alias have been busy little bees. But never mind that. This is for you, because, dammit, if you actually remembered my name or where I lived or went to school or whatever, or just MUST find everyone who went to your high school (which sucked, btw) and were determined enough to hunt me down like this, then ... well here's your google fodder.
