first i want to say im not usually a stalker, but one night a few months ago i found your blog via someone else i know, i dont even remember, and now i read your blog pretty much everyday, and finally worked up the courage to leave you a comment.

We have many mutual friends, the most mutual being Nate Earl and Mike Visser, so i am confident that if i ever met you we could be friends. However it will have to be over the internet via your blog.

Dont think im crazy, ok?
