This is not a "normal" post. Please bear with the author.
It's the beginning of the end for some and the end of the beginning for others. I think this is how I will categorize the majority of the people I'm going to talk about or type about in this first introductory post.
The question is who to start with, because in describing others I will be able to more accurately describe myself.
By decree we shall start with Steve. Steve is a very interesting person, I wouldn't say that we're on the best of terms, I can be a little overbearing, but on the other hand I am pretty sure I can count on this gimp. Speaking of gimp, Steve broke his leg/tore something in his knee playing soccer so send condolences to...um...tell me and I'll pass em on I guess. Steve is cool, even tempered unless his filming ability is insulted and all around a great guy, most of the time, but Steve and I are not best friends so we continue. Steve also goes by the name "Backpack Steve" which may or may not be explained later.
Again by decree, I think that the last person on the list will be the person decreeing these even though they don't know what they are doing, Shannon. Shannon's my littlest sis' who, well to put it frankly, annoys me a lot. I am pretty sure this is not her fault and I love her dearly, but man, we can go at each other pretty good and she's almost 8 years my younger, crazy. She's spunky, spontaneous, she wants her way and she's not afraid of anything.
I'm getting the feeling that this is going to take a while. Oh well.
Hopz. or Hoppers being plural. The crazy bunch of people I'm pretty sure I could call my second family. No idea why. The five of them; Carson, Nad or Daniel, Josh, with their parental units Jeff and Laura, live pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Too bad really. Surprisingly the decreer is not the last on this list, but the main man himself, Carson. Since this is an introduction to all the people I know, I've decided to stop writing so much about each person.
The Hoppers bring us to our next person, dear little Eleanor. Why? Well cause Carson and Ellie just happen to by dating at the moment. Who would have guessed my best friend and my very good friend would be going out, wonder how that went down. Ellie is short, committed and a little little. She recently became a WoW addict thanks to yours truly.
Kara, Kara, Kara. Some people are attuned for Kara, but this is not what I'm referring too. Kara is kind, very trusting, one of the "best" people I know. She wins at life. Everyone loves her.
Bingman. Kind of a weird name now that I look at it. No idea where it came from, his ancestor must have dropped a rock on a man's head and that head, being quite hollow, went *bing*. Bingman is eccentric and crazy but underneath his fun loving character I am sure he actually cares about something. First name Jonathan.
Kristen is my littler sis', but not the littlest. She hates conflict, is an amazing baby sitter so if you need someone...well...I can hook you up. She thrives on people, but almost refuses to step out of her comfort zone. I think that as we go we'll find that everyone is a walking ironic conundrum.
I wasn't going do bring this up quite yet, but what the heck it's the internet. Lindsey is the amazing girl who is going to Night of the Stars with me. Don't ask me how that happened, I'm pretty sure I got the better end of that deal, but more on all of that later.
Coleton and Sean just go together. They are very sarcastic sometimes, very funny, but when you need them the most they will be there for you.
Mary and Jenn, my two amazing editor's that I could not live without. I'm pretty sure I have accidently insulted them too many times to count and I am deeply sorry.
Andrew Biehler, saxophone and music extraordinaire. Also amazing friend, but no longer a bachelor, traitor.
We can't forget Claire, she's just so...clairy...google claire and the feather and you'll see what I mean.
My amazing parents will not yet be named because they deserve a post all to themselves. Also note that this is not a complete list, it is just who was mentioned to me during my writing and who I thought of. More people will be talked about, but these are the people that came to mind at the time.
