I am Colin, a classic literature nut, general bibliophile, fiend for classic films, and introvert extraordinaire.

The story of The Man Who Laughs/ L'homme qui rit is also near-and-dear to me and the blog has become somewhat of a fandom space for it (although there doesn't seem to be many of us, sadly). I will occasionally post personal things too.

Feel free to message me and check out my blogspot site (link below) where I post longer musings and lengthy analyses on various topics.

"John, look at me. Am I not monstrous? It is the truth of my every waking moment. And yet..despite all, I feel joy. I do! I do! I hear the church bells beyond my window…the chatter of the nurses…"

I got up. I made breakfast. I vacuumed. I went out and did the grocery shopping. I took a frantic phone call from one of the students I tutor to calm him down about an exam he is having today. I read another chapter of Fools Are Everywhere. I think I’m ready for a nap. 

I am so tired. I think I am just going to head off to bed tonight. I’ll probably be around tomorrow. I know that you’ve all forgotten me though. I can’t blame you. I have been elusive of late.
