Polidari Wormwood - wanderer of time, and finder of lost socks

Hola! Namaste!

After recent sojourns across the face of the globe (India, Mexico, and Dublin) Polidari now finds himself permanently attached to his desk again (and he's not too happy about it!). Mexico included the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, and the wedding of a friend to a Mexican girl in a cathedral - reception started at 21:30 and went on to 4:00...

Polidari had only just returned from a brief sojourn in India (well - February), where he discovered religion, didn't like it, so put it back again and backed slowly away.

Born in 1846 to unknown parents and left for ritual sacrifice at a reknowned stone circle, my life has been a struggle against adversity from the start.

From these distressed beginnings I have striven to make good of my life, and despite the hideous physical deformities and lack of knees, I continue to strive to this day. If you're interested in my appearance just consider an old gaunt man with a pronounced stoop and a black fedora.

And big meaty thighs. Probably due to the lack of knees.

Time holds no barriers to me and I find myself able to commute across centuries in the blink of an eye. The only problem with this is that even though time is no barrier, I don't get around too easy, so it's not worth going anywhen.

Odd socksIn the sock collection at the moment are one ankle length brown one, and a knee length school girl one (which I might well keep). If you are the owner of the brown one then please let me know...

Also, if you should come across any lost socks lying about the place, let me know, and I'll add them into the ever-growing collection. Presently waiting (patiently) for my socks smiley.

Here are some recommendations for your delectation :

Favourite Films : Duck Soup (Groucho!), Seven Samurai, Metropolis.

Favourite Books : A Prayer For Owen Meany, Catch 22, Watership Down, Ghost Story, Pride and Prejudice.

I think this probably confirms that I ought to get out more.

Thank Bob for Factorials! 180 - 9 - 5! - 9 = 42
