Contouche's Laws


Murphy is an old aquaintance of mine. I met him early on in my childhood, on the schoolyard. I didn't like him much, but he seemed to take to me like a cat to cream: He has followed me around ever since and keeps jumping out at me when I least expect it. Through this long exposure to Murphy's laws I have become sensitive towards the workings of the more sinister forces of life, the universe, and everything.
I've met other people who've known Murphy for a long time the world over. One of them is Black Emeralds, who inspired this page. Thanks, Ems! <hugs> If this sounds familiar - join the club!
