Okay, okay. Everyone keeps asking me in chat, so I'll tell you right now: YES That is me in my profile pic. It's actually a painting OF me by a friend in college. It's photo-perfect cause he's amazing. (good job, ANDY!)
I'm a pretty interesting person, actually. I mean, not to sound conceited or anything... but when I look at my life, I realize that I've really got it good. I have a group of amazing friends about 60 strong, 25 of which I can say I'm really close with. All of them are incredible, all of them talented in some way. I hang with musicians, artists, jugglers, blacksmiths, anthropologists... I myself am an artist of some skill and the lead singer/guitar player for a traditional Irish folk band. But that's normal for my group of friends.
