A Quick Note About Other Adeles

No, I am not the talented and famous singer Adele Adkins, who is known for the very lovely song Rolling In The Deep.

(And no, I am not Adele Dazeem, aka the talented and famous singer Idina Menzel.)

I am a more geeky Adele, and I am surrounded by many wonderful geeky people, because that’s just how I roll.
