People!? Ffft, who needs 'em?

"If I'm working very hard, which is seldom, the last thing i want to do in order to relax is to be with people and babbling away and so forth.

So I go to the movies or read a book or watch any of my thousands of tapes upstairs...

Social events - foof. You know."

- Edward Gorey, Edward Gorey and the Tao of Nonsense, 1992

I value my time alone with a four-legged companion. I'm in transition for the first time in nearly 20 years and anxious to have that type of company again. People, not so much.
