On this date 24 years ago, the world was graced with my presence. Thank you to all friends and family that remembered and sent me messages and gifts. And thank you to everyone that wished me well two days early as a result of a Facebook reminder. Despite my entire profile being fictituous (Born in France? Horticulture major? Pagan?), I can see how you might have believed that my birthday was actually on April Fool's day. Next time you'll know better than to trust anything associated with my name.
