    my dear Mole, some automaton (or close facsimile of) has seen fit to "housekeep" our conversation to some oblivion, where our correspondence "will be lost in time, like tears ... in ... rain". How tedious.

    my dear Mole, motherwell continues, interleved with somewhat lighter moments from galapagos (vonnegut), the dying animal (roth), the unnatural history of the sea (roberts), oxford figures (fauvel), the last ape standing (walter) ... and you?

    Yes, Mr St-t-toat, I have been approached by a founder and moderator of Typology Central, named Jennifer, who has asking me if you are a dupe of me. In other words am I egregiously breaking the rules by having two accounts on Typology Central?

    I have denied the imputation and given Jennifer some small information about you, and suggested Jennifer contact you for confirmation.
    There is NOTHING--absolute nothing--half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing.

    Yes, I spent a little time in our beautiful National Gallery by the lake and noticed that Motherwell is on display. So I have made a date with myself to go back and see Motherwell's work in the flesh, so to speak.

    As you are a prodigious reader, Mr St-t-toat, I feel you have much to offer us.

    You might guide our reading into interesting byways. You might even give us your opinion of certain books. And indeed, having read so much, you might give us a comparative opinion of literature. At your discretion of course.

    a st-t-oat a dupe OF a ... Mole, as in ... duplicate? or ...

    a st-t-oat FOR a ... Mole, as in, well, ... a sucker, a stooge, a sitting duck, a fall guy, perhaps even ... a pigeon, a patsy, or even a ...a schlemiel?

    either way, one's mind quite simply ... boggles!

    i shall try my dear Mole but i fear you should be disappointed; most comes from curiosity and a love of books than from scholarship; and you understand, dear Mole, st-t-toats abhor comparisons - we suffer them so very often!

    galapagos (vonnegut) - the ultimate genetic bottleneck and the book darwin wished he had written and in some v close parallel universe may well have done so?
