is only ten letters long, but with practice and diligence, it can be coaxed to

expand to the length of a whole book, the proportions of an entire biography.

i am over six feet and go everywhere
i don't get e.nough
I am a nice, warm, congenial sort of person, and if you saw me walking in the street you would probably want to take me home with you in a cage where you could keep me safe and sound from the dangers of the modern world and cuddle with me at will.
I find letters from God dropt in the street
I hate purity, I hate goodness! I don't want any virtue to exist anywhere. I want everyone to be corrupt to the bones.
I am an intelligent, unsociable but adapatable person. I would like to dispel any untrue rumors about me. I am not edible. I cannot fly. I cannot use telekinesis. My brain is not large enough to destroy the entire world when unfolded. I did not teach my long-haired guinea pig Chronos to eat everything in sight (that is the nature of the long-haired guinea pig).
I am the guardian of gates... the junction of your destruction... the laser lighting the way to your doom... the planner of your obsolecence... the furnace that fires your demise... I am the number you cannot compute.
I used to could write.
I have more interests than God.
I am not a heliotrope. I do not sympathize with bent plants.
Also, when I am angry, my eyes flash fire, whether I growl or not.
