<door opens, spotato flies in, slapping the wall and falls pathetically to the floor> on which are written the words;

I have dwelt ever in realms apart from the visible world; spending my youth and adolescence in ancient and little-known books, and in roaming the fields and groves of the region near my ancestral home. I do not think that what I read in these books or saw in these fields and groves was exactly what other boys read and saw there; but of this I must say little, since detailed speech would but confirm those cruel slanders upon my intellect which I sometimes overhear from the whispers of the stealthy attendants around me.

(It was a very BIG spotato, and the words were written in very small copperplate.)

Quiet cackling is heard from without the confines of the room.

(small aside : Aeryenne, photoshop the ear, it despoils the curve of an otherwise exquisitely constructed avatar)

*muted whisper* Mr. Angus, you just said exactly what I was thinking. I was sitting here looking at it going "Summat's off 'ere...", if you'll excuse the terrible pun. Thank you kindly!

Please understand I mean no offence. Your contrast & saturation work are divine, if I may be so bold.

But if I might explain my some what brash motives;
We communicate in a hyper real, relatively virtual world unrestrained by the conventions of physical reality. Our imaginations define us. Hey, I'm green lightning under glass.

Apparently... (psychologists would have a field day, but I digress). I do not wish to dent anyones personal view. Here, more that other places, we are ourselves. Still its the small things that draw the eye and shape the perceptions of others. It is a pity, but then we are all only human.

Ladies and gentlemen I do apologise for the interruption. but this kind of behaviour cannot be allowed to proliferate:

Naughty, NAUGHTY Picaroon. The punishment room is 2 doors down on your left. Please go there immediately. You will find on the wall 4 buttons: labelled thus: Sisters of correction, Brothers of force, lady subservience and man-slave. Press as your ID requires and they will be along presently to administer your punishment or draw from you your wrath. I will be along shortly (hour, hour and a half tops) with soothing after pain absinthes.  

Once again I deeply apologise for the vocal interruption. I hope I haven't terminally interrupted your silent musing.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.
