  I am a not-so-addicted but yet avid follower, and came across it one day when browsing under google for 'word games'. Yup, Potatoe.com's infamous worm nerd came up. My wife thought i was on some emo-wierd site when she came across it in my favorites list.

  I'm not addicted. Honest. I found the site by a friend typing in Potato.com, but spelling it wrong.

  Well, we quite literally grew up here if you look at some of our older postings. I'm good, thanks, Tommie. I've got myself a lady now, so I'm all calmed down. In theory. Really enjoying myself/ourselves actually, even if we're quite a way apart (about 200 miles, most of the time). 10 months its been. Wash is good as well, thanks. He's back in the country on Saturday (from Spain) and I'm sure I can persuade him to drop by. How are you and, if she's reading, Amelia?

  Well, that's pretty nice about the lady. 200 miles?Sometimes, Kid, a little geography can keep things sweet!

I see on Wash's blog that he's just been to the land of the Pharaohs. Is that Irene he's with? If so, they've been an item for a few years now. Just what are his intentions?!

I happen to know that Amelia's good; in fact, she's been hanging with a Pharaoh.

  The 'looking forward to seeing each other' part is nice, but the 'knowing we only have a weekend' each time is always depressing. 6 week holiday will be good; I'll be using it to further my job search.

It is still Irene he's with - and they seem to have been together for ages. His intentions? I'm not altogether sure, to be honest. He'll be here over the summer, so nothing will happen then for sure.

Amelia, with a Pharoah?

  Tommie! So glad to hear you still keep an eye on my blog, even though i've kinda become a stranger here. It is true that me n Kid have really grown up here...in fact its fair to say i've spent the best years of my life here.

Egypt was awesome, and yes, it is Irene in the photos. We've been on the go for 2½ years now. I'm back in the country, as Kid said with plans to...well.... check out what its like to live here and take it from there. I've lived abroad 4 out of the past 7 years, so it won't be easy, pero que será, será, as they say.

So what's the story, Amelia?

  Yikes, I wrote a big long post here and it got eaten. Phooey. Anyway, at the time posted, I was still getting along swimmingly with my personal pharoah, but after a year and a half of bliss, my Egyptian-born sweetie has left me to the curse of the mummy's tomb and my own general devices. I am still in New York, still working at Big Publishing Company. I am blogging more (and tiptoe39 is over there, too!) and have immersed myself in Harry Potter fandom as my most recent craze. To answer the original question, I came to potatoe.com because I went to high school with Tater way back when God was a boy. One day I Googled him, and lookie what I found? I think that was about 1999, and I have been popping in ever since. This site really was the first link in a crazy daisy chain that also led me to Three Way Action, a really fun web community where I have met tons of good friends and my general online hangout.
