30 Days of Paganism meme: Intro

It might not be thirty consecutive days, and I barely use the word Pagan on myself, but I'm taking on the 30 Days Of Paganism meme. Because I like telling everyone what I think about things, in the rather conceited assumption that what I think is universally both interesting and valid by virtue of my INCREDIBLE BRAIN being SO FANTASTICALLY HUGE. A friend once told me that in this respect I reminded him of Aleister Crowley. I suppose that's not an offensive or inapt comparison to make. I am indeed a fucking arrogant know-it-all, just like Aleister Crowley. I suspect I may be smarter than he was though.

The questions, which I will answer as and when I please, are:

You're also butcher than Anton LaVey, but when you consider that man was a closet interior designer, I guess you don't &really* have that far to fall to be off his fey tree.
