Hello. Some visitors to my homepage have requested to know some personal information about me, so here it is. I was born on December 4th, 1978. I originally lived in University Heights, Ohio, but moved to Solon when I turned six, partly because me father teaches there and partly because they have a better school system. I was always an "energetic" child. I was later diagnosed to have Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). ADD is always fun when mixed with asthma and many allergies ( :^> ).
When I was in fifth grade, a teacher played a song by "Weird Al" Yankovic for the class. I thought nothing of it. A few years later, I heard the song that it had parodied on the radio in the car. I went on a search to find the "Weird Al" version and have been hooked ever since. One night, I woke up in the middle of the night and heard the eternally famous "Who's On First" routine on the radio. A while after this instance, a friend told me about a comedy radio program that plays "Weird Al" music plus other funny songs. I later discovered that this was the same show. That's when I started listening to the Dr. Demento Show on a regular basis. I became a fan of the Chronicles of Narnia series of books by C.S. Lewis when I read my copy of "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" (the first book in the series) that I had received for a birthday. My interest in X-Files started with the first show of the series that I'd ever seen. I am currently taping every show in this series, but am missing 1. My interest in Magic: The Gathering started when a friend introduced my to the game in the middle of last the summer of '94. My friend, Ris Misner had been playing for a while and wanted to teach me the game. Though reluctant to try new things (food, games, etc.), I said "OK" and he proceded to teach me how to play until one of my parents made us aware of the fact that it was 4 a.m. and we stopped playing for the night soon afterwards. My interest in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy came about when I rented the movie twice in a row so that my free rentals at Blockbuster that came with my purchase of "Jurassic Park" would not end up lying around and collecting dust for the next however many years I live (I am a severe packrat). As far as my Star Treks interest is concerned, I liked the original series when I was young. I thought that the Next Generation was dull and helplessly complicated. One time when my family and I went camping, I brought along 2 books. One was an Indiana Jones novel and the other was the novel adaptation of the pilot to the Next Generation. I read the Next Generation book because it was shorter. When I read it, I got so excited that I could understand who everybody was and what was going on that I have love the series ever since. I even made sure that I was able to see the "Star Trek: Generations" preview the day before it officialy opened. I also like "Deep Space Nine" and "Voyager". I am currently recording every show of both of these series, though I'm missing about ten DS9 shows (out of all shows ever). Also, as a result to my being a fan of the "Trek"s, I got interested in Star Trek: The Next Generation Customizable Card Game. I am still learning how to play the game. Finally, I got interested in "Doom" and "Doom 2" when my mother bought the "5 ft. Ten Pack" of CD-Rom CDs that contained the first episode (Shareware). I first played "Doom" when I heard some friends praising it and I first got and played "Doom 2" as soon as I could.
Hope that that will satisfy you folks for a while.
