Ugly is in the idea of the beholder. To us lagooners I am considered a

real hunk.

If that is ugly, I would enjoy being ugly

I do too. When I walk around I wear a big cloak so as to not scare the kids.

Yes, the kiddies stare at me for some reason. Children find me fascinating. It must be my honest expression. See post #249.

Hmmm... By now I have enough evidence to "accuse" you of being a Time Lord.

A Time Lord. It seems you're not a fan of British TV shows.

Monty Python's Flying Circus?

Isn't it the show from where the name of the Programming language "Python"'s name has been derived?

Is it still running?

Hi;

Monty Python's Flying Circus is still being shown but I do not think it is still running.

I do not know whether they used that to derive the name for python.

I didn't go shopping. Just did not feel like it. Too many people in the store probably.

Did you go the store and just come back?

No, I never went. People here tend to shop on Saturday so I go any other day.

Hmm..

I got that number theory book.

It is surely a great "Recreation", but would it help?

Very good, you are a clever fellow.

Do not be fooled by the term recreational. Those are very serious problems.

Take a look at it, if you do not like it I will try to find another.
