Frequently Un-Asked Questions
Q: Are you a man?
A: Not the last time I checked.
Q: Is Sid your real name?
A: No. My real name is far too unique and special to share with the unwashed internet masses.
Q: What the hell does "Nasty, Brute-ish and Short" refer to anyway?
A: Some seriously deep shit.
It's a reference to a Thomas Hobbes quote about life and the human condition. Though, it's not meant to be a reflection of how I really feel about those things. I'm still working that out.
It's also a reference to a favourite children's book "The Little Brute Family" by Russell and Lilian Hoban. A book that reminded me (somewhat uncomfortably) of my own family when I was growing up.
Q: You know "brute-ish" is actually spelled "brutish" right?
A: Does anal-retentive have a hyphen?
