Introduction I'm an organizer at heart. I wear black with brown, but I do not wear gold with silver. I send Microsoft error reports, and that's gotta count for something. I'm always five years younger than I want to be. Whatever I feel, I feel very strongly. When I get another dog, its name is going to be Moby Bear.
