I love my brother colin, he's four years older than me.
Both my gramparents and uncle jim & aunt lori hail from nebraska, where there is a beautiful pond.
I have two half sisters, twnety some years older than I: lynn and chris who's married to peter, and between them my nephews and niece gid, eli, cassidy. George's son george jr. is rad.

I wanted to work at Wired, I did.
I collected predictions from the staff. I made a club wired appearance. I argued with Louis, the founder a bit.

I'm into painting as well.
