    I think that originally my parents were going to call me Aaron but a few weeks before I was born a neighbor had a kid and they called him Aaron so my parents went for Craig instead. I thank the heavens as for some reason any Aaron I've met in life has been a tosser.

    Just want to reinforce that stereotype by saying F*** You!!! :p

    I was named Aaron because my mother wouldn't let my dad call me Elvis. Thanks Mam.
