Strix the harbinger
guards the exit gate, quizzing all
Who will pass this night?

Frankenstein

Aldo Ross posted this along some other Frankenstein quotes on Facebook. This is for Margadant, Westrum, Hurst, Mary, Kurt, L.P. and all you others. You know who you are.
"The companions of our childhood always possess a certain power over our minds which hardly any later friend can obtain. They know our infantine dispositions, which, however they may be afterwards modified, are never eradicated." (from Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley)

Oh, and by the way, Lorna and Linda were over to visit Aunt Dorothy this afternoon. I won't say how old Dorothy is, but she was born in '24. She still stays on top of things. Among other things, they discussed 1410 Oakwood, and dial-up versus high-speed hookup. Dorothy, get with the program. Get Jason over there as soon as you get home so you can listen to Beau Jocque sing Cornbread. You take care, sweetheart.

What does this say about my relationship with you, Westrum, Grinley, and Hurst?

M.
I've known you since Cub Scouts. How much further do I have to go back?.
