Well, I think anyone of us would probably be viewed as eccentric. I
have six cats, a room full of old computers (some under construction),
and a collection of restored (by me) mercury barometers. I am an
attorney, but don't practice, instead I have a small furniture factory.

The trick, as others have pointed out, is not going to such an extreme
that all connection with rationality is lost. If you were married,
however, I guarantee you would be a lot better at throwing things out

I have to add, however, if you haven't heard it enough, that you are a
true treasure to this group. The petty arguments that go on here are
typical of any close group, please don't take them too seriously.
