JOHN ELROD II: CONTRIBUTING WRITER: John is currently untitled. This complete lack of definition would drive most into abject bitterness and utter despair, but not someone of John's virility. No, John is the picture of mental stability and emotional platitude. While not sailing his schooner, scaling a treacherous peak, or trekking the Serengeti; John can be found doing things he actually does, such as: assembling a sandwich, monitoring television broadcasts, or taming the wild frontier that is his lawn. John is also good at masking his feelings, exaggerating what qualities he has, and mindless babble.

She now resides in Los Angeles, incognito as a mild mannered customer care agent. Her plans for world domination are continuously hampered by hipsters moving into her neighborhood, distracting her by painting their homes horrible colors and blasting emo music. She’s currently considering moving from Los Angeles to Santa Monica which will change nothing but the cost in her rent.
LAEL GARDNER-STALNAKER: CONTRIBUTING WRITER: Lael Gardner-Stalnaker spent a number of years as a child care specialist.
