ID: Here it is
Thanks again for letting me attend the fantastic event on Saturday –– the cheesesteak I ate afterward was made tolerable because I was still on a bit of a high from hearing Charles speak!  Anyway, as I said (and as I wrote to Dan earlier this –– my –– morning) I will begin, if it’s okay, pitching this to a bunch of mainstream media.  I think it’s about as close to a sure thing as they come, though we live in a strange world, and publishing as a microcosm is in almost complete chaos, so perhaps it will fizzle, but it’s absolutely worth a shot.  As for me, I may look like Alice in Wonderland, but I’ve hunted pythons in the Everglades, so I think the Siberian tundra will be no match for me :).
ID:  long story
that i can’t do justice to right now
but it involves maybe me participating in a motorcycle race across siberia
IS:  oh wow
I wish I could make that my status
I’m writing a movie in my head about it as I type
a countercultural “Eat Pray Love” if you will
ID:  ahhahaha
instead of luxuriating myself into a new me
i’ll just beat the living shit out of myself
IS:  I just laughed out loud
