Good afternoon! I am Alan. I drink a lot of tea. In my spare time I enjoy walking, computing, and, occasionally, playing around with words and punctuation. This website is one of the few publicly accessible (though not well-advertised) fruits of the latter two pastimes. See the Colophon for some notes on the computational and typographical aspects of this website's construction. The Preface, for its part, contains a few remarks on the nature of this website's content. As with all things on the internet, the whole is yours to explore.
