What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

I am a limeonaire, a millionaire of limes. how I got here.

I like cats on Macs. I also draw stuff sometimes.

I published a book of sky photos. I also designed these postcards.

I make pins and T-shirts. I also sing and play guitar.

The way Skylar says, "You're an idiot." It is the blight man was born for. She's not a thing that is being done to you.
