I love Stephen Fry and *hate* Stephen Harper, which makes me pretty neutral overall on the subject of the name "Stephen". Wait, no, Stephen Colbert tips it into the good category. Not to mention Stephen Hawking! And Stephen Jay Gould! You can't destroy all Stephens, Harper, what do think of that? Hah! But I digress... Wait, Stephen Lewis! Awesome! Okay, I'm done.
I also like cats and dogs (especially Scottish Terriers--you may associate them with George W. Bush, but I'll have you know those Scotties were on a high level infiltration mission, and I salute them for their sacrifice). Oh! And turtles! They're kick-ass! Especially the Mutant Ninja variety. It's possible that I'm sort of a nerd.
