I'm educational. Cool.
Pair Networks is such a good hosting company, aliens made them their own crop circle.
oldie but a goodie. This one never goes out of style.

The Bystander's Tale, my account of RLJA's birth and my second long essay posted this week. I think I've filled up my writing quota for a few months now.
