Why a toad? Because I like toads; they always manage to look permanently miffed about life. Why this toad? It's a Boreal toad, Boreal being linked to Boreas which is the Greek version of Aquilo (extra l intended). There: and you thought there'd be no tenuous links.

About me: I come from Porlock to interrupt your NIGHTMARES! No, wait. That's wrong...


And that's my profile sorted. If you're here because I reviewed, I really, really hope I haven't offended you somehow. Anything that I said was meant as constructive criticism rather than as a bait. I don't flame: I can't see the point.
