Please be advised that as of today, Tuesday, July 3, 2007, my beloved, swivel-headed girlfriend Brianna Marie Johnson will be referred to as “Bri Monster” within these pages. The nickname is a reference to one of the main characters in the musical Avenue Q, a big-hearted puppet with a weakness for mix tapes who dreams of one day opening her very own school for monsters. The similarities between Bri and Kate Monster are uncanny; they even look alike. Also be advised that Bri approves of this nickname, and that the poster you see to your right is on the Johnson bedroom floor waiting to be framed.
