Apparently my birth was very traumatic. I seem to have repressed all memories of it.

Allegedly I was born in Taipei, Taiwan, where my father was stationed on the orders of the United States Air Force. I say allegedly because I haven't felt that I could trust my parents since the night I caught them trying to steal the money that the Tooth Fairy had left me.

Most of my childhood was spent in San Angelo, Texas; and in Northumberland County, Virginia. After high school I worked many different jobs, and goofed off on many more.

I met my wife, Maria, in Las Vegas, and have two wonderful daughters, Sasha and Samantha.

The current dream is to be able to make a living doing creative work of my own choosing. We'll see what happens.

I screamed in despair, shoved the papers away and ran into the fresh air outside of City Hall, where I was safe from the Bureaucraticon, for whom the direct sunlight was strange and hateful.(less)

Fiction: Shipwrecked

I was shipwrecked at sea once. I floated alone in a wooden rowboat for five days before I was picked up.

On my second day adrift, I sat on the edge of the boat to take a dump over the water, and four dolphins stuck their heads up out of the water. They chirped at me angrily in their strange, high-pitched language, and they gave me mean looks, so I moved away from the edge and I sphinctered on a clo Read more of this blog post »
