Lovely ! Upon reading this I remarked to the boys "That's it...we're moving to Phoenix." (Dude vetoed it...says we can move to Tucson, but not Phoenix...sorry.
I'm the Nerdess - Science Geek, Sci-Fi Fan (books predominantly, generally Golden Age SF, I am a bibliophile - but I do make exceptions for some TV series like Firefly and Dark Angel), periodically addicted to my MMORG (temporarily on hiatus as this forum is my current online addiction). Agnostic, Libertarian. (I'm not as familiar with the "Humanist" philosophy - but I agree that bigotry is not tolerable to me.)
Welcome to the forums Josh!
PS. I'll take you up on the musical theatre - the boys aren't interested, but we all love good food (and excellent beer).
