Blackouts and Cross Country
So Holy Shit like the world stopped and nothing bad happened. Kudos to America for not being what they normally are. I couldn't be prouder from overseas. As a matter of fact I was bragging about it last night in the bar with these F'n! Canadians (who have a weird holier than thou arrogance) pointing and going, "See! See! See that's goodness." I think at one point I even stood and clapped, you know straight Irish guy style with a cigarette hanging out of my mouth muffling, "Beautiful, just buteeeeeful. I'm all for it". (That's a quote from the Isle of Wright video from this old woman being asked about the kids running naked...it always sticks with me...She's all like in this granny voice with naked kids smoking hash running around saying "Beautiful, nice, life. I'm all for it! Beauteeeeeeeeeeeful") Anyway I was looking at images and they just seemed wonderful. I mean one of a kind totally wonderful. The kind of thing that I so envy. From what I understand there was no major looting or anything. God, just fucking Bravo! Man if any of you have any stories besides Tim's recanting of his day
, which I want some more craziness in there actually but it gives me a good beat on what went on...and well shit if I read like CBS news or something I get all bored because I can't really put a face with the news you know...so if you were there (eh hem Craig, Dan other people) I want to hear about it damnit!
So on a different foot. Tim and Doug
apparently seem to be planning a little (well shit...big) cross country trip. That's so awesome and something that I am doing with my Mom when I get home. Well it's not like all hipppied out and adventurous as I'm sure these two are planning but it will be awesome none-the-less. My Mom is moving out to Nevada to start her new life and I get to totally Columbus it over there with her and my baby girl Hunter in a black jeep. I mean it will be mostly driving and seeing Kansas but my Mom is so fun that I will be able to drag her to all the cheesy shit that I can now appreciate a little more after this strange jaunt. And then when I go to turn around I was thinking of having Craig fly out (because he and I have been wanting to take this trip for quite some time) and then just cruising back to the east. That may not happen and I may just end up cruising back solo. My mom will want to get me a plane but if I go back I'm going back train and I'm going back slow baby! So yeah Tim and Doug before you Lewis and Clark it (or from now on Atwell and Boucher it...or Boucher and Atwell it...nah I like it the other way ) I can so totally be Sakajaweeah (sp?) and give you an idea of the lay of the land and things to see or whatever...I just sort of wanted to contribute to your possible magic journey in some way. Blah Blah Blah. Man 16 days. 16 glorious days! It's gonna be so much fun my last 2 weeks here...I have my birthday next week and then going away party and club night in Hyundai oh hellz yeah...!
