About Me

From time to time I attempt to write about myself so that whoever stubles upon my site can learn more about me more quickly than reading each of my entries. I usually find it a very tedious process, mostly because I don’t like writing about myself. There are so many more worthy topics, I assure you. You can find my last attempt, “Apollo In Silhouette” in the Year One Archives, but there’s a lot of overlap with this entry. Without further ado, here are some information and some scrawls about me.
