Author List: M - Z

Jan. 1, 2002 - ?. Posted 20 March 2006

Seeing as I recently had five people sign up for this site, I figured I should try and finish the author list, as it really seems to make more since if you're trying to poke around old entries, even though a lot of this stuff is chronological, particularly lately.

As it turns out, however, I found you can only make an entry so long before it breaks down and weeps. So I would enter it again, and it became petulant, leaving off the last two pages of html. So I'd enter it again and it would capitulate, but just a little, letting on an extra word at a time.

So you win, Diaryland. For now.

So, obviously, the author list is now divided up into two divisions. I think that if this proves anything, it's that if you want to be a writer, you're better off having a name that begins with the letter M. I noticed truth way back from working at the used bookstore. Aside from all the people named Miller, you have the drunken Irish with all the McNames, who have nothing else to do but write. Then there are the hillbillies who have the MacNames, who probably think that extra letter entitles them to preferential treatment.

My name begins with a C. Stupid parents with their homogenized Anglo-Saxon name.
