My Nickname: I was called Critter even before being born. Mom didn't know whether I would be a boy or girl, so she kept calling me 'it.' Grandma finally got really upset with her one day, because grandma knew I was more than just an 'it.' Well, in response to this, mom said "well the Critter then," and has called me Critter since. It stuck and even today most of my family still calls me Critter. While trying to gain my independence and establish my identity during my adolescent years, I tried getting out of being called Critter because I thought it was an embarrassing child's name. Since then, I have received Jesus as my Savior, and He said, "Verily I say unto you, unless you receive the Kingdom of God in the likeness of a little child, you will never enter it." I decided the name Critter is not all that bad after all, and besides I needed a handle to use on the internet!

777: This part came about because of the date I was baptized - July 7, 1996. Explanation: July is the 7th month of the year, and of course the day 7 is evident. But how did I get 7 from 1996? EASY!!! 1 + 9 + 9 + 6 = 25. That is still not 7, so how did I get it? HA!!! Take the answer 25 and go 2 + 5 = 7!!! So, there is the third 7 :) July 7, 1996 = 777.

Baptism - July 7, 1996 - Hungtington Beach, California
July 7, 1996 - Huntington Beach, California

There is a funny thing about my baptism. Just before the pastor plunged me in the water, he said "I now baptize 'Mark' in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit." That was the first time I was called 'Mark.' There have been at least three other people call me 'Mark' since that time. I have been told by a certain individual that she keeps wanting to call me 'Mark.' Talk about strange... now THAT is strange!!!
