Hi. I'm Peter. I'm here way too much of the time. I used to have a really long, really cheesy blurb. Then I replaced it with a bunch of quotes. Neither of those make for especially good blurbs. I am, however, going to keep collecting out-of-context quotes because when you read them, you'll be confused, clearly indicating my superior intellect. Yeah, well, I'm more interesting than you. Deal with it.

I kid, I kid. You people take things too seriously sometimes, gawd. I suppose I do as well.

Am I supposed to tell you about myself? Reading and writing are probably the most important things (to me, anyway) that I do with my time. I imagine, though, that I will pretend to be a more effective writer and better read reader all my life. I hate the word pretentious because it seems like a cop-out insult to write off someone's behaviors and interests, but I probably just hate it because I'm afraid I am just that.

Psychotropic drug chemistry is perhaps one of my greatest interests. I am an idiot when it comes to the hard sciences, though, so I spend more time romanticizing certain concepts than actually researching or understanding them.

Gardens are the shit.
