• I am basically a hobbit.
  • I never, not once, managed to save the princess in the original Mario brothers video game.
  • I have two cats : Tempest (We call her Kitty ‘Pest), and Captain Ninja Fish. We also have a new dog, Athena Vincent McBride Aman. Despite the dog being a female, my son thought the name Vincent “went well” with the rest of her name.
  • My brain can hold onto movie quotes forever, but I can’t remember actually useful things like geography or history. (Unless the history is weird or disgusting in some way. My mind is a sewer.)
