as of 06/28/04 ~ 7:00 p.m.
this list is designed to help you make sense of my rambles. the following people i will usually mention in this diary at least once a month, if not more. if you are looking for someone else that doesn't apear to be mentioned, proceed to my other cast page, which lists people i have either lost touch with or don't see on a regular basis.
