Happy Birthday, NtG
The acronymn NtG stands for the moniker "Nick the Geek". He chose this name for himself, so I am not being rude to call him that. NtG likes his anonymity. He is a Youth Pastor, techie, comedian, prankster, and fun person. But mostly, he is a Christian, in the very best sense of the word. He wouldn't be so dang good at forgiveness if he wasn't.
My first cyber exchange with NtG was a misunderstanding. Long story short, I gave him a hard time for something he didn't do, and refused to believe that he didn't do it. (How can this happen in cyber space with someone you never met in person. It's possible...especially when you share a blog with twenty other people :-) I only believed he didn't do it when I checked out his blog for the first time months later, only to find that he was every bit as adamant as me on the subject. He was telling the truth: he was challenging the pic, not posting it...(Sorry if this is overly vague, but if you were around for the early days of fottsp, you couldn't have missed my tantrum, and if you weren't, please let I was WRONG and he was right suffice...)
I apologized, and NtG readily forgave me. We became facebook friends, and followed each other on twitter immediately afterward. Since then, we have kidded each other a lot, but I have come to have the utmost respect for him.
It was Nick's recommendation a few months ago that I watch the movie, "The Princess Bride". I believe he said it was one of his favorite movies. Watch it I did, and I loved it. My fave character was that Enigo Montoya guy. Before checking out the video, I ought to warn you that Enigo calls someone an SOB, but doesn't use the initials. If you can bear that, this is one of my favorite scenes in the movie.
Oh, and Bun Bun Rabbit wanted to send his best as well...
(Be glad I couldn't find a singing monkey patooty)
