Hello World!

I'm amazed at the amount of people who came up as Sam on the 'West Wing' personality test, including my esteemed co-editor Christian.

Don't get me wrong, I like Ainsley as a character, and Emily Procter is an excellent actress - I just don't particularly want to be her. But as someone did point out, I do have (fairly) blond hair. I guess I'll grab my Creme de Cacao and head off to the Steam Pipe Trunk Distribution Venue....
