Got a heads-up via mycowardice's late blog about this place. Lots of familiar handles here and lots of lebensraum, so here I am. The Readers Digest version of all things asgardshill: - I write stuff for a living. - I came within a case of the sniffles of getting a ride on the Space Shuttle Columbia back in the 80s. - I once woke a US President out of a sound sleep to tell him about an attack on US forces in the Middle East. - XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX , and it is my firm belief that XXXXXXXXXXXXXX as a prerequisite. - I drop out of sight from time to time because I have almost no attention span. That about covers it. So, here we go.
