i can't fit everything i do and see into the e-mail updates. well i guess i can but no one would read them since they'd be too damn long. thus i occasionally send out another e-mail called random thoughts which contain many of my funny stories, strange experiences, or thoughts from the road. i try to make these interesting; see if i succeeded below.
