<SNORT> I've seen you refer to this book several times, Dinah - I went ahead and ordered it. I'm also reminded of someone I knew in England whose husband was a bit of a reckless driver. He referred to her behavior in the passenger seat as a "scrabbly rabbit" as she would jump nervously as each close call.

Thanks for the reminder about the title - I think it will help me feel a bit better about myself and my reactions in general. I've always treasured my alone time - silence and a lack of stimuli in general bring me a lot of joy, and I've always thought myself odd for wanting to shut myself off like that.
