Well, I have to thank The Quill and The Lime and say that, coming from them, this essentially meaningless award takes on meaning.

Seven Facts:

  1. I am a fiction, therefore rendering the idea of fact a vague and questionable  concept.
  2. I am 5′-8″
  3. Dogs are my friends
  4. The name Repuesto de la Tabla has been verified by an actual Spanish-speaking person of Costa Rican ancestry.
  5. I am mostly male, but feel that testosterone has outlived its usefulness.
  6. Heideggar’s Principal
  7. Like every fabulous, intriguing country is in some way ruined by its inhabitants, Art is ruined by its Artists.
