My first edit under this username was the creation of the article for the Canadian trampolinist Jason Burnett in January 2007, a page which has since blossomed beautifully from its humble beginnings. My main areas of interest, and the categories under which most of my edits have been logged, include:

This account was originally named "Dindon" (the French word for "turkey"). In 2015, it was forcibly renamed to "Dindon~enwiki" during the transition to a system of unique usernames across Wikimedia projects. In January 2019, it was renamed to "Colin M", at my request.

If life ever gets me down, I like to just remember that American opssum in baby grand piano.jpg is a thing that exists (and is even currently included in the article Virginia opossum!). I love to ponder the circumstances that led to the creation of this photo, and just be thankful that c:User:Jkatsis2 was moved to not just take it, but upload it to Wikimedia Commons (under such a delightfully literal, precise filename), where it could bring joy, mirth, and wonder to so many.

I truly believe this is one of the greatest things I have ever seen on the internet. How are we to read this facial expression? Somehow it seems to signify surprise, hostility, merriment, misanthropy, and bemusement all at once. Truly the Mona Lisa of oppossums.
