Wile E. Coyote: The God For A Time When Nothing WorksTM

I work as a freelance copy-editor/proofreader. I live with my spouse nellorat and my cohusband womzilla; we've been living together for 22 years, and it keeps getting better. I am cissexed. I am blessed with no children, but we have many pet rats. I am definitely on the introversion spectrum, but probably not as far as Asperger's. Perhaps I am an ODDball. I was forcibly graduated from Swarthmore in 1964. Politically, I am a liberal with libertarian tendencies. Religiously, I am a Jewish Discordian Gnostic heretic who worships a cartoon character (Wile E. Coyote). I am also a mathematical mystic, who thinks that our ability to comprehend the infinite, even in part, is a connection with the Divine. I will stop being a human exceptionalist when an animal writes a sonnet or proves a theorem. The two books that Made Me What I Am Today are Stranger in a Strange Land and Illuminatus! I am an epigram geek. Ceci n'est pas un Pepys.
