At Home He's a Tourist

He fills his head with culture/ He gives himself an ulcer.

The Old Curmudgeon continues to annoy and fascinate simultaneously. Recently he wandering into technical services with a videotape in hand. He wanted to use our TV/VCR to watch a few minutes of the cassette to make sure it was playable before depositing it in a time capsule. It turned out to be a recording of an old "Arthur C Clarke's Mysterious World" episode about explorers looking for rumored extant dinosaurs in the jungles of Africa. One of the featured explorers was none other than Old Curmudgeon himself, some 25 years younger but still wearing his infamous Beatles mop wig. "When I had money I could afford to take the time and explore the world," he said. "Now I live in poverty."

Some other stories about O.C.:

--He got banned from a church for pulling out a knife and cursing in the middle of a sermon.

--He has used our library phone to call local bars "private clubs" to verify happy hour specials.

--He shares an address with someone who's been banned from our library for viewing porn.
