Where AM I?! Oneders? Anyone?

I’m not precisely sure how I tumbled into what is an increasingly surreal current existence, but yes: That IS me, Amy Courts…with my two idols-if-I’m-allowed-to-have-idols, Jennifer Knapp and Derek Webb, and Isaac & Taylor Hanson of Hanson (think ‘MmmBop’) fameage. Where AM I?

Lenny: “How did we get here!?”
Guy: “I led you here. For I am Spartacus.”
