semper reformanda

i used to read encyclopedias growing up. "A" and "S" were my favorite letters. i also liked the entries with maps. especially the kinds with the flimsy clear overlay for "before and after." now i read the wikipedia for fun. tonight i read about martin luther's marriage to katherine von bora. unfortunately, katy (as he affectionately called her) looked like a man.

happy reformation day.

You and Matt Limber could be soulmates.
The Limber personalized license plate reads, "S RF4MNDA."
Bunch of nerds.

Pro: you DO have lots of time on your hands.
Con: sadly, I don't think that this qualifies as a hobby.

Drop the "F" -- only 7 characters + a space are allowed in FL.

PS, I already found my soulmate. :-)

PPS, You're only a real nerd if you edit the Wikipedia (cf. "White & Nerdy").

To Matt:
Oops about the "F" inclusion.
ps.Yes, I know. I like her very much.

I know why you liked encyclopedias and maps... Carmen Sandiego is where it's at, baby.
