I am a lawyer, born and reared in the Twin Cities. Family is everything to me. My mother I adore and my father I worship (my father is also a lawyer). I have two older brothers whom I love dearly: one, 39, is married and has a young son and daughter and works as a financial analyst; the other is 36 and single and works as a civil engineer. My brothers and I were dispersed for years while being schooled and while establishing careers (Boston, Palo Alto, London, New York; Ames, Fort Collins, Denver; Princeton, Vienna, Washington, D.C., Boston), but we are all home now—and, it is my hope, we are all home for good. The newest member of my family is Joshua, whom I met in Washington while I was in my last year of law school and while Josh was in his last year of undergraduate studies. We immediately became inseparable and have faced the world together practically from the day we met. We have recently returned to the Twin Cities from Boston, where Josh gained his Juris Doctor. We have many interests and participate in numerous and diverse activities, yet we are mostly homebodies, playing sports, reading history tomes (and passionately discussing them) and spending time with family.
Gosh! Who knew? I stumbled upon a blogger today who claimed that you claimed to claim Chicago as your home, while some other subomphalosian thinker confidently identified you as "really a woman" - AND,believe it or not, I found out this morning that I, Danen Rubbra, am not who I think I am but that I am actually YOU, Andrew!ReplyDelete
(And I had thought the Andrew Patner curse had long evanesced!)
Well then, I looked in the mirror and saw this man staring incredulously back.
So, the cat's out of the bag, Andrew: everyone knows now that you are really 60 years old!
Being 60 years old is quite a feat, given that my mother just turned 65 and my father just turned 67. How my older brothers managed to come into existence, God only knows.ReplyDelete
I believe you are referring to the weirdo from London, David Nice, as well as our stalker from Springfield, Oregon, Amy Adams. Did you follow the links on Josh’s blog, and see all the online comments Amy Adams has been entering under your name? Many, many more such links will be published in due course.
Of more recent provenance, Amy Adams, among other things, has been amending Wikipedia biographies, making defamatory statements about living persons—and listing me as the person that authored the defamatory entries.
