He also enjoys reading, going to the movies, long moon-lit walks on the beach, and occasionally stalking both Lauren Ambrose and Mike Binder (for entirely different reasons). He reviews all marriage proposals fairly and equitably, and plans to accept as many as possible.

    Bio
    Joe R had worked in some sort of library setting ever since he was sixteen, enmeshing himself in a blood feud with Joyce Carol Oates that every day threatened to evolve into Stockholm Syndrome. Joe grew up next to a Great Lake, so that flat "a" you heard is how he actually talks. His current ambitions include making more money and seeing the Buffalo Bills one day win the Super Bowl. The resulting loss of composure and dignity will no doubt be memorialized at Low Resolution, his charmingly inept attempt at a blog.

    Sep was born in a bustling bazaar just west of East Bangladesh, which I guess puts it somewhere in Central Bangladesh, on 131st Street and Main. Left to fend for herself, she got by on her wits, selling naughty hood ornaments whittled from old fence posts and stealing the odd plantain for breakfast. Enticed by the steel-blue eyes of a passing carnival barker, Sep hit the road, getting by on her wits and selling naughty hood ornaments whittled from petrified elephant dung and stealing the odd honeydew for lunch. Eventually her travels brought her to Austria, where in an effort to get the carnival top billing in the annual Strudel Parade she turned the Von Trapp children over to local authorities. Impressed, the German Intelligence Agency enlisted Sep's help in international espionage operations, until finally, on assignment in sunny California, where she was secretly getting by on her wits and selling naughty hood ornaments whittled from endangered redwoods and stealing the odd sushi roll for dinner, she decided to hang up her cloak and spork and live the recapper's life.

    Well we all have a face
    That we hide away forever
    And we take them out and
    Show ourselves
    When everyone has gone
    Some are satin some are steel
    Some are silk and some are leather
    They're the faces of the stranger
    But we love to try them on
    Well we all fall in love
    But we disregard the danger
    Though we share so many secrets
    There are some we never tell
    Why were you so surprised
    That you never saw the stranger
    Did you ever let your lover see
    The stranger in yourself?
    Don't be afraid to try again
    Everone goes south
    Every now and then
    You've done it, why can't
    Someone else?
    You should know by now
    You've been there yourself
    Once I used to believe
    I was such a great romancer
    Then I came home to a woman
    That I could not recognize
    When I pressed her for a reason
    She refused to even answer
    It was then I felt the stranger
    Kick me right between the eyes
    Well we all fall in love
    But we disregard the danger
    Though we share so many secrets
    There are some we never tell
    Why were you so surprised
    That you never saw the stranger
    Did you ever let your lover see
    The stranger in yourself?
    Don't be afraid to try again
    Everyone goes south
    Every now and then
    You've done it why can't
    Someone else?
    You should know by now
    You've been there yourself
    You may never understand
    How the stranger is inspired
    But he isn't always evil
    And he isn't always wrong
    Though you drown in good intentions
    You will never quench the fire
    You'll give in to your desire
    When the stranger comes along.
    I am Tubey.
    Please love me.
