I know what you're thinking...

And yes, it is true... I _am_ evil. :devilish:

Okay, here's my official bio (or at least, the latest version of it):

I was reincarnated on 30 August 1965 at 12:25 a.m. in Greenock, Scotland. I moved to the Pacific Northwest 20+ years ago and picked up my first Tarot deck around the same time. Since then, I have been entertaining people by revealing the hidden influences in their lives.

I was the producer of the Internet broadcast show "Astrology Talk with Laura Gerking" on Talkspot.com, but now do private home parties and corporate events, both as a magician and a fortune-teller.

I am the founder of "The Lunatic Fringe," a group of seriously-disturbed minds residing in the Seattle area that meets during the darkness of the New Moon.

I also publish "OORT: A Newsletter for the Professional Cold-Reader."

Tremble and despair, ye mortals... :stare:

Uh, Ok, well Welcome anyway!

But you aren't so scarey - you gotta remember we have all been exposed to Ichazod for some time now :goof:

So, like what do you do out there on those dark new moon nights? Do you sing "By the light of the Moon?" I can almost hear the chorus now "yada, yada ... of the silvery moooooon... "

But where does the name come from? Seems to me I read that name somewhere... Oh yes - The Bible! A Whole book of the Bible is called Philemon. Cool!

Hey friend glad you stopped in. I look forward to hearing what you have to say.

I saw that you were browsing earlier, and wondered about you. And now I know!

Welcome!

BroDavid

[i]Welcome[/i] to [b]The Magic Cafe[/b] Philemon, I'm sure you will enjoy your time here. Besides, now Ichazod will have someone to talk with that isn't always screaming and running away. :rotf: :stout:

Ichazod? That young upstart!? I was summoning demons the same time he was still cowering from the ones under his bed! :shucks:

Not likely. When the moon is new, there's no 'silver' to be found. :)

Just don't ask what we do during a "Blood Moon" (Lunar Eclipse).

(There are some things that mortals were never met to know...)

Dearest Martin, Ichazod, Peter, Steve, Tora & Merlyn,

Thank you kindly for the warm welcome.

I'll make sure you all have an even _warmer_ welcome when you finally visit my domain. :angry:

The only thing under my bed when I was young was my older brother, being that we didn't have bunk beds, it's a little hard to explain. Needless to say, I was not the one who was cowering. :arg:


Welcome again Philemon, it's nice to have you among us.

:sun: Hi Philemon! :sun:

Welcome to the "Magic Cafe"

It's so nice that you decided to come visit!
And that's a big step too! :nod:
We're sooo proud of you for making the decision to come here to get help and get involved in our "program". :yippee:

Now don't feel so bad about your past life, :no:
we've all made mistakes before, and I know we can help you. :smiletear:

It may take some time, but before you know,
you'll be working kiddie show's with the best of them. :dancing:

Why just look at how we helped Ichazod, :lover:
he's so much nicer/tammer now then he used to be,
(when we found him at the "home") :cyclops: why he's even moderating. :bg:

So you just be patient, come here often and before you know, you'll be a new person. :bigdance: :bwink:

You'll be sooooo happy. :rotf: :goof: :rotf: :goof: :rotf:

Mya :cuteangel:

If it's hard to explain, can you at least send pictures? :devilish:

Believe it or not, I already do 'kiddie shows.'

After all, I believe in recruiting and corrupting them as soon as possible!

Philamon, Nice to see you here,
My "Ring of Fire" Brother!
See you soon :)

Greetings Telemus!

Of course, what I want to know is:

How come there are three medieval-style magicians that I know of in the Seattle area.

But _I_ was the one doing magic at the recent Lord of the Rings convention in Gig Harbor...?
