I have recently made this journal mostly friends only. To much has been going on in my life, and I don't want or need random strangers giving unwanted advice.

Okay, put on your Dream-O-Specs, and try to imagine this.

Six foot five inch ex-bouncer with granny specs and a (now greying) red goatee, lurking in the used and rare book shops, holding debates about anything and everything. Okay? Good. Now add a dash of geek, a touch of romantic, a few tablespoons of religion (the more flavours the better!), stir for 45 minutes, and serve with rare steak and single malt scotch. That'll do.

In the less metaphorical department, I'm a computer geek, working for the University of Michigan.

He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.
-- Dr. Johnson

"O! It is excellent To have a giant's strength, but it is tyrannous to use it like a giant." (Measure For Measure, Act 2 Scene 2)
William Shakespeare

"The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so
certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts."
-- Bertrand Russell

"I have recently been examining all the known superstitions of the world,
and do not find in our particular superstition (Christianity) one redeeming
feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"For of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: 'It might have been!'"
--John Greenleaf Whittier

"Per angusta ad augusta."
Through trial to triumph. Unknown
