After reviewing the comments I received in my previous post, I have decided to keep Abelard as my new blog persona, at least until I decide I need a new persona.
Although, I hardly feel worthy of such a noble moniker. Abelard was a great philosopher, and I am just a lowly dunderhead. Abelard was a passionate lover, and I am still just a lowly dunderhead. Abelard was castrated, and I'm --- not.
BTW, does anyone know how you're supposed to pronounce Abelard? I've been using A-beh-lard, but maybe it's supposed to be a -BEE-lard or Abe-lard or ???
