Acknowledgements

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING LIST CONTAINS EXPLICIT THANK YOUs DEDICATED TO ONLY THE GREATEST PEOPLE TO WALK THIS PLANET. IT IS ABNORMALLY LONG AS WELL. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

1) Josh Gourlay - Dude, you rock. You are the one who follows The Chaos Theory and you're more than likely the only person who's going to make it clear to the acknowledgements. I love you lots, you're really cool to me. I just hope that we can stay friends, because word has it that people are lucky only when they've met you. Oh, and I guess I should also thank you for allowing me to experiment with Daniel Halifax (property of Josh's 'The Ties That Bind Us' and 'The Search for Truth' tales).

2) Aaron VanDerWege - Yeah, I know, what are the odds that you're going to make it to the end of this, right? You're my best friend, dude, and you're my brother. Not in the literal sense, of course, but it goes without further description that you are the closest person to me and I know we're going to be friends to the death. Stay real.

3) Scott Detmiere - Scott was my favorite person to hang-out with when I lived in Nebraska City. He was my first friend there and he and I started a band together called Chaotica. He was the lead guitarist, and I hate to think about it, but he was recently involved in an accident. It makes me cry knowing that right now he's in a coma and I can only hope for his sake and mine that he makes it out of there ok so that he and I can one day create another band. Scott, I know you may never read this, but if you die, my spirit will die with you. Please don't die on me, Scott, you mean too much for me.

4) Jade Lanswit - Ha, she's still laughing that I used her name as Leslie Card's alias. I did it for you, Jade, lol. Anyway, thank you for being an awesome cousin to me, Jade; you're second to Trent, lol. Thank you for your support all through the Chaotica experience (she was our roadie, lol), and thank you for writing a book about us; I'm excited!

5) Anters and Dragonofraven - You two are the goofiest, most messed up fudgers I've ever met, but it's in your cooperation that you two become normal again. Good luck with Encounters, and PLEASE don't kill Cedric! That's like killing one of the two of you! You can't do that! lol

6) Former members of Chaotica (Carrie, Scott, Trenton, Terry, Jarin, Karlynn, Aaron) - "Stay real. Be true. Hold on." I love you all, and I ask that while I am so far away from home that you all look over each other. I have a side request for all of you to please pray for Scott for me. I hate that Tom died a month ago, I don't want HIM to die too... none of us can bear that. Please pray for him, I know I am. P.S. Carrie, I am SO glad Danielle is ok. I worried so much about her.

7) Anyone I missed - I'll catch ya next time!
