HENRY!!!

Hello!
This is my introduction:
Ahem, hello. I joined because I think Thoreau is hypocritical, annoying, sneaky, girly, boring, matronly, overly sensitive and wordy. Basically a very nice guy. I can understand his wanting to observe nature continuously (though why for 2 years 2 months and 2 days?) but WHY WRITE A BOOK ABOUT IT? No one else wants to read about how he plays hide-and-seek with birds and observes ants! And I guess he slept through Emerson's self-reliance lectures-his mother brought him cookies when he was at Walden! I can just see this little old lady waddling through the woods, "Henry Shnookums, mamma brought you some cookies!" Breathe. Breathe. Anyway, I just needed a place to rant about this. ;)
