I had to bow out of the road trip in favor of being present for any contingencies in the process of declaring bankruptcy. I'd have had to return too quickly to make this road trip a responsible choice for me.

I'm glad I got to (hopefully) help denshi gain enough momentum to reach Austin escape velocity. At least, I hope I helped more than I hindered. Maybe 60-40?

Today I'm at the PPP doing paperwork, and a more thorough inventory of my worldly possessions. In fact I am possessed with a zest to divest of the rest. Or at least, divest of more of them. It all fits in the back of the truck now, completely, with no scraps needing to be housed elsewhere. Many of the things I truly value can be completely converted into ones and zeroes and stored in ever-shrinking devices. (I'll bet there exists a Hello Kitty laptop that could outcompute the Space Shuttle's aging equipment.)[1] The rest I can keep in the memories of others, much like Stephen Wright's seashell collection.[2]

[1] Hello Kitty Space Shuttle!

[2] Perhaps you've seen it? He keeps it scattered across the beaches of the world.

Yay! Matthews!

No, I don't have a point, just yay Matthews!

I love that Stephen Wright joke. I also like his (possibly borrowed) "You can't have everything. After all, where would you keep it?"

I sort of extrapolated on those ideas one drunked night and explained to some assembled victims that I was, in fact, the ruler of the planet. I wasn't going to "take over" the planet, I already was in charge. I just have this real "hands off" management style. I try not to micromanage individual countries and economies. Add to that the fact that I'm basically a lazy and bad ruler, and you have the world in the state that it is today. Sorry, but I just don't care enough to really exercise my global authority.

Just popping through and you go and say something like that. Now my mind is off in various tangents,largely a continuation on a conversation I had yesterday about the concept and history of slavery, and I'm due at a casting session too soon to particularly expound on any of them. So I guess instead I'll just say hello and that I hope to see you freaks in December.

Wa!

This was just the proto-roadtrip. I was to join denshi for the Boulder-Portland-San Francisco leg of his travels, but only for about a week. That prospective week just got too small. I'll see what the lawyers need after the next appointment on the 25th; I'm hoping to make a good trip happen right after that if there's room in the bankruptcy schedule.

OXOOXXO,
Trip

Plus I've given up on urgency. I'll be in Boulder until mid Saturday.
