Okay, this is sad and makes me sound utterly pathetic, but I just Googled myself. And I was sad not to find this little blog (or my now-dead lj) in the list. I did, however, find my father, the Meliorist and several academic papers I have edited. I also didn’t find the newsboard I administered. Plus, I learned that Google seems to think Gauthier is a better name than Gattiker, since it asked if that’s what I meant.

But I found a whole whack of people named Melanie and/or Gattiker. Who knew there were that many Gattikers in the world? Because, trust me, we have not been breeding like rabbits. Apparently they’re not liked in our clan.

I now feel appropriately humbled. Huh.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled pithiness.
