Yep, that's me.  (What a dork!)

Well, as some of you may know by now, my name is Richie. I am currently a Junior in High School, and I live here in Sturgis, South Dakota, the location of the annual Sturgis Bike Rally! It's not so bad down here (I refer to it as 'Down,' because previously, I Lived in North Dakota). The Black Hills here are beautiful, and perfect for hiking and just taking in the beauty of all of God's creation. The people are also very friendly, and they make you feel like you're family. During my Sophomore year, I got very involved with the choir and the drama club, and it's been a lot of fun. One of the first things that you notice when you join drama (or choir for that matter) is that drama (and choir) kids are something else. They are. It's kind of hard to explain really, but drama kids are the people who dress themselves up in plastic shopping bags for fun, and walk around in them in school for the entire day. They are also the people who, while you and everyone else are on stage rehearsing, the one person who isn't doing anything will make off with everyones' car keys (don't ask me why people keep leaving them on the edge of the stage) and park them on the other side of the building, so that everyone runs around in circles panicking once practice is over. Oh well. At least we all got our cars back. But when you're in drama, you're like one big family, and it's a great feeling to have. However, once you look at the drama kids more closely, you will notice that the drama kids, in fact, are really the choir kids, which is why the drama kids are the way they are! Anyway, if you aren't in drama, and/or you aren't in choir, you SHOULD be. especially if you're a guy! because guys that can carry a tune are in short supply, and a dying breed. If this continues, we may have to draft some of the guys from the wrestling team. You know who you are!

Things I Like
Computers, cheese, kitties, bunnies and other warm fuzzies (except for dogs), the word 'smite', reading, watching Star Trek, building models of starships from Star Trek, pretending the model starships are real and fly them all over the house, Star Trek, dressing up like a Starfleet officer and embarassing my friends (no, not really. I don't actually have a Starfleet uniform, but if I did, I would surely wear it), playing Star Trek computer games, speaking Klingonese (Qapla!), Vulcan (have YOU hugged a Vulcan today?), chocolate, pizza, pie (a must), green peas, breathing, riding my bike, playing frisbee, playing my various instruments (now including the Contra/Bass Clarinet), Dave Barry, explosions, thermonuclear reactions, computer programming (erm... calculator programming at least), a certain *ahem* female, shinies, going to church, Duct-Tape (man's best friend), hanging out with my friends, flaring my nostrils, playing raquetball, drama, choir, barbershop quartets, classical music, violins, bass clarinets, and the list goes on and on...

Things I Don't Like
Dogs (kitties are better), okra, asparagus, writing lots and lots and lots, emptying the dishwasher, being smoted (smitten? Smited?), mowing large lawns with bad lawnmowers, getting water in my eyes, getting anything in my eyes for that matter, watching TV all day, clogging the toilet, country music (it's somewhat of an oxymoron, really), people who think Star Wars is 'superior' to Star Trek, people who flare their nostrils at Star Trek, Wookies, being stapled to things, not breathing, getting duct-tape stuck in my hair, throwing up, and pounding off my fingernails between two large rocks.
