Greetings and hallucinations, web-goers!  I humbly welcome you to my fancy schmancy new website.  I haven’t had time to say much yet, but Monday I’m going to throw up an “About me” page, so you can know a little bit about who I am.  If you check out my Contact page, I’ve got an e-mail address up there.  You’re welcome to send me a message telling me what kind of content you’d like to see, or you can post a comment below.

If you know who I am, I hope you’ll check back often.  I hope to publish a variety of content, including special treats for subscribers only, so sign up while it’s free!
