Well hi there and nice ta meetcha!

At least that's how spryte would greet you.

Spryte is the child of my imagination, created during my IRC days.  Sort of my alter-ego, you could say.  Imagine a small disheveled creature with the tenacity of a pit bull, the vocabulary of a scrabble addict...add some caffeine and then stand back! 

Children of family and friends were the source of my inspiration when giving spryte a personality.  She fidgets, she climbs up on to things, often speaks her mind without the social qualms that fetter adults, and I find her to be refreshing as hell. 

Beware the pockets of her dress, for they are deep and filled with many interesting objects...including her pet squirrel, Fluffy, who's been deceased for some time.

In comparison...I'm rather dull.  :)

    Astrology, is it a science or a bunch of hogwash? Perhaps you see it as just a vicarious thrill and there's no harm in reading your own horoscope on a daily basis. For me, astrology has always been somewhat of a...
