if you really want to go see it (i am embarrased!), it's located here. i created it when i was 12, and haven't updated it since around 2003, i guess (i was 19, if so). i have been a pretty huge beatles fan most of my life. when i was 14, it was the 3rd most popular fan-created beatles site on the internet. i was contacted by patrick cousins, julian lennon (john lennon's first son, if you didn't know)'s manager who congratulated me on my dedication and html knowledge at such a young age. unfortunately, that little site demonstrates the extent of my understanding of html; i have not bothered to keep up with the times or learn new things like css. however, i am proud of what i accomplished, and i'm going to leave that website there forever :p.
i have old japanese wall hangings and scrolls, figurines, plates, jewelry, chopsticks, and more. brandon and i have nurtured our collection with new additions every now and then, and we love each and every piece! many items came to me through the death of my beloved great-grandmother, who loved japanese culture so much that she always swore we had some japanese blood in us. i think i was the only one who embraced that side of her, but we lived so far apart (her in ohio, me in texas) that i am sad to say we did not really get to know each other and share our mutual fascination with all things japanese. when she died, my grandmother (her daughter) gave me most of her japanese items. i have taken excellent care of it all, and through those pieces, i fondly remember my great-grandmother.
