In which I find my True Calling in Life

I wonder if anyone has an opening for an irascible Victorian-Edwardian scholarly recluse? With indoor plumbing, please. Although I guess if you've spent some time running around India or fighting the Boers, you're well adjusted to pooping in outdoor troughs and bushes.

I could become an expert on something obscure like the past pluperfect of Sanskrit and act rude to my housekeeper and have grudges to the death with other linguists and brandish my cane at people I didn't like. And in my spare time I could write swell kiddie stories about talking chipmunks.
