I describe myself as tall and handsome, with flowing blond hair, deep blue eyes, and an elfin facial structure. On the other hand, one of my brothers has described me as follows: "Billy is short, and he's really really short, and he has a long nose, and upon it there's a bump." So take your pick.
Aside from being a Computer Science/German undergraduate student at university, which takes up far too much of my time, I enjoy programming computer games, writing (decidedly flowery) poetry and prose, singing Barbershop, playing various board and card games, dying horribly in roguelikes, and, of course, drawing pictures in MS Powerpoint. In the few areas of the Internet I can frequent, I use the name "Vivificient," which means "alive," and which I acquired by flipping open the OED to a random page.
* This does not include strips submitted but yet to be entered into the database. It can take a week or more for strips to be entered into the buffer (or for Square Root of Minus Garfield, two or three months - yes the backlog is that big). Please don't e-mail us to ask why your "buffered strip" number hasn't increased unless a couple of weeks (months for SRoMG) have passed since you sent in a strip. Thanks.
