A list of things about me...

Okay, seeing how I do not want to study for Italian right away, I think I am going to do one of those lists/bio things that I should have done since I've had this diary since 2002. Well. Why not?

1. I have a tendencey to say ya'll.

So, quick thanks for the image from confusedvision, under the Creative Commons License 2.0. The inspiration came from Lacuna Coil, an awesome gothic metal band from Italy. This place on the web is fueled by diaryland, firefox, psp 9, caffeine in any form, books, slavic literature, and random bursts of ideas. With the exception of the image and lyrics, the design and code involved is mine. Graize.
