I'm English. I was married to but am now separated from an American girl. But a real one, not one of the American Girl dolls. That would be weird. I still live in America. I work in a cube farm at Medicaid in the great state of New Jersey. Between December 2003 and June 2011 I made a webcomic called Shit Happens. Between 2006 and 2009 my then-wife, Mary, wrote the series. /like many things we used to do together, we no longer make the comic. I watch a lot of movies and read a lot of comic books. Sometimes I make jokes. Sometimes they're even funny.
Like many users, I often go for long-ish spells without updating my journal. I comment often on other journals. I try to stick to debating, discussing and arguing without regressing to trolling or flaming; if you feel that I'm breaking this self-set rule, feel free to PM me. I'll either concede and retract any points of contention, clarify my position, or pull faces at you and then hide until you go away.

"Well, it is not a good world -- nobody can say that it is, save those who wilfully blind themselves to facts. How can a world be good in which Money is the moving power, and Self-interest the guiding star? The wonder is not that it is so bad, but that there should be any good left in it." -- Allan Quatermain, in 'Allan Quatermain' by H. Rider Haggard, 1887.
