I love how you start a thread specifically for your big announcement, but you don't actually have your avatar set.

Would it be insensitive for me to suggest your hospital photo? It's definitely a very arresting image.


In addition, I would like to assert the following opinions:
Ice skating is not very enjoyable.
Cake is great, but icing is not.
30 Rock is the funniest comedy series on TV right now.
There are too many holidays at the end of the year, they ought to be spread out more.
Not enough people wear orange clothing.

See, at this resolution it looks like you got terribly drunk and naked and your friends stuck you in a hospital gown and gave you a sharpie Hitler moustache and you are not quite sure where you left your house keys.
