I always thought he was cool, but he probably just thought I was annoying, cuz I was so obnoxious in high school. For the next several years, I would run into him everywhere I went. But I still always thought of him as "Brad tha Phunny Guy," a nickname I secretly gave him for whatever reason.
So I consider LJ a continuation of the "running into him everywhere I go" tradition. Some things are never gonna change.
