I was Bhagwan Eva Marie St. Clyde the Second, at least that was
one of my names. Though I was the leader, the only Orthodox Nekimud was
someone else. And she gave it up after a while--it got too tedious
praying five times a day to the modernist concrete fountain in the center
of town. We had ritual greetings, a few customs, and some strange claims,
but mostly we had extremely silly names. They got stranger as we went, so
mine is one of the least silly.


Who discovered in high school that
1.) there were other people like her, and
2.) Douglas Hofstadter is cool.
Oh, yeah, and boys.
