I went to two years of Spring Woods Senior High, then got myself transferred to the H.S. for Performing & Visual Arts (HSPVA, a.k.a. the High School for Perverted & Vulgar Acts, hehe...) Being way too mischievious, feisty & plain ornery*, I was too much trouble at Spring Woods: COUNSELOR (tired of seeing me): "We have somethin' good fer ya ... and good fer us, too... It's called HSPVA." And it was good for me. * I was in fights with jocks & rednecks nearly every other day; I skipped classes a lot - especially P.E. (Physical Education); I played ruthless pranks on students & teachers alike; vandalized property (i.e. setting flashpaper-bombs in lockers); smoked & gambled in the bathroom; smuggled booze into school in the form of oranges soaked overnight... ok, everything short of murder ::evil grin:: not that I didn't try... yep, the pen is mightier than the sword... it's more concealable ::BiG EViL GRiN::

Perhaps this upbringing in such an assbackwards area of Houston, TX predisposed us to linguistics & to conlanging. Nay! It's just coincidence ;) We have own reasons... right? czHANg, puzzling over the strange coincidences in his wacked-out life "... cunning, baffling and powerful." - phrase describing addiction
