As long as I can be "Andrew," I'm happy

Time for a little re-pluggage here, folkses.

After revamping the layout a little on my blog, I took time out of my busy schedule here at UGA to answer a few emails from some friends of mine. One individual in particular, a Mr. Eric Fritzius, had sent me quite a few missives. Personally, I don't consider this to be a problem in the least bit. No sirree. Eric n' me go way back.

In fact, I think he "blames" me in part for his construction of what is quite possibly one of the funniest blogs I have ever read: Tales from the Liberry. See, Eric works in a public library. Whereas I just deal with social reprobates, bohemians, and the dregs of society in college, Eric gets to see these same types of people all growed up and trying to function in society. We're kind of like a "one-two" punch with our commentary on the lives of the people we interact with.

However, Eric is a MUCH better writer than I am.

As Eric has stated before, there was an Evil Triumvirate of Co-Hosts for the late, lamented Four Colour Theatre (heard on WMSV in Starkville). Long before Joss Whedon came up with the idea of the Three Evil Nerds (for reference, see Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season Six, now available on DVD), Eric, Joe, and I were there. "O.N.'s," if you will.

Joss Whedon has just started writing a brand new X-Men comic book for Marvel Comics (Astonishing X-Men, the first X-Men book to have a REASON behind its title), and Eric emailed me to ask me if I'd read it. He also sent me an email showing me Joe's new puppies. Ergo, the nostalgia kick that started this entire somewhat free-form email. Ergo, the reference to the Three Evil Nerds. Ergo, the comment about me getting to be Andrew. Ergo, the --

Oh, shush. I've not had enough caffeine this morning. So what if this is rambling.

Now excuse me. I must go design RA Training.
