And now, I see that the nick he chose to use on NFZ has more meaning than my randomly calling him that when I didn't know if he was going to blog or not, but he'd made me a cool logo for use on the site. ;) This amuses me -- for nearly a year, I've been not catching this ref, and to find it now amuses me to no end.
So, when I find a job (yeah, I'm looking, preferably in the Bay Area, I've just got a nice shiny new Info Mgmt degree from Cal that I'm dying to use), I think I'll try to make a more regular effort to hit up the comics and gaming store a few blocks from my apartment. Damn you, Mal, you've given me a new obsession. ;)
[Edit 5/22/04 1:53 AM: Hmm, checking back on the NFZ has me quoted as actually saying this: "The fourth person...well, I'll introduce him when he decides he wants to make a post..." Guess it triggered random synapses, but I remember thinking my random commentary was why he requested the name he did. ...but now it all makes sense. ;)]
