"How can we forget the first time we had lunch together at Walker Beach. All afraid and trying to connect with someone, so that we wouldn't feel so alone. Everyone sharing their summer experience, but deep within wishing and hoping to find a friend soon..."
Trip to L.A. with Phoebe, Christine, and Justin
Frank food fights

I guess I would like to say a few words before I end this little project and start distributing the copies. First, the disclaimers:
The views and ideas expressed herein in no way, shape, or form necessarily represent the views, beliefs, or values of the editor of this wonderful book. It's not my responsibility if certain things contained within this book are found to be offensive or distasteful to some people - you are reading this at your own peril.
Next, I would like to thank all the people who made this all possible by contributing (either willingly or not) various things, such as quotes, the Hey You! forms, etc. I would especially like to thank Ashley and Leena for some of the photos, and Ben and Jacob, who wrote almost all of the Dark and Stormy Night... selections.
While I tried to represent everyone equally in this book, it is also true that the more you put into something, the more you get out of it, and as a result, the people who contributed the most, will probably have their names mentioned the most within this book.
I have tried to give credit where credit is due, and please forgive any errors, deletions, and unnecessary changes I might have made. Most of the humor lists were considered to be public domain. Everything else remains the property of the author.
With all that said, I hope everyone enjoys Front Hall Fame: The Formative Year as much as I did when I was putting it together.
