So you want to know something about the shadowy Melanie?
I created the entire Eclecticity web site from scratch. It's been around since 1994, at various URLs and in various states of disrepair. Most of the sections of the site contain fairly static information; the exceptions are the Babylon 5 site, which has been woefully neglected (e-mail me if you're interested in inheriting it), and the Take Our Word for It site, which now takes up most of my (and my husband Mike's) time, though we love every minute of it.
Speaking of my husband, we met via this web site! I had been running The Logical World of Etymology weekly column for about two years when we began corresponding via e-mail about etymology, Mike having come across the site. Our pen-palship escalated, and we arranged to meet (we were half a continent apart). The rest happened in fairy-tale fashion, and here we are, collaborating on the web site that brought us together.
Mike is working on getting his own web page posted, and once he does I'll add a link here. Meantime, see his biographical information.
I have a degree in meteorology and a rich liberal arts background. I've studied language, etymology and related topics for years, along with history (especially of the British Isles and American Indians/Native Americans) and literature, not to mention music. A more detailed biography is here. Mike and I are also proud cat custodians. See my cat blog, The Ivan and Boo Chronicles.
I think the links listed to the left will tell you a lot more about me than I could, so have a browse.
I do have a couple of claims to fame, however, which are so absurd that I figured I'd mention them:
Well, that's probably enough. I don't want you falling asleep and incurring a huge Internet connect bill or anything.
According to this turnstile, you are visitor number since December 10, 1995.
