I can't believe it either. That I left my phone, that is. As for Holy Ship!--come on E, you know how much I like the high seas. And it's not like I'm hanging out on retiree cruise with a bunch of whitefolk...but man I hope these folks are nice to me.
I'm at the Bahia and it is bizarre to not see a bunch of people who know each other laughing and hugging. Aslan just left, she is the responsible one to drive home before too many vodka & Red Bulls. Yeah, that's right bitches. AB and Aslan are in fact friends and are in fact hanging out in real life. And I'm even having some vodka. You wish you had a photo so we could both autograph it.
Actually I am a little surprised that I am on Holy Ship! as well, but I committed to it early in hopes of taking a (then)special lady on a luxurious freaky vacation. I soon realized that that was a bad idea. But I was committed (to the boat) and couldn't back out. So I'm going solo. The desire to be more important than Jam Cruise was once expressed to me by a female companion and I decided at that moment that nothing, really, could be more important than being in a place where you feel more like yourself than you ever do anywhere else. That, my friends, is where it's at. So here I am. And I miss you fuckers but to tell you the truth, I look forward to a NEW experience. My five days with you and Karl and Annabel and Skerik and Toast and actual live music being played on instruments is the absolute best portion of my year every year, but it will be pretty rad to not be abgar for a couple days and still get to hang out on the boat. Those of you that understand that understand that, the rest will probably think I'm an arrogant fuck, but there you go. Welcome to my brain.
So here I sit before 9pm in a hotel room all to myself in slightly chilly Fort Lauderdale, waiting to get on the Maiden Voyage of Holy Ship! I look forward to laughing with a bunch of folks who REALLY like to dance and will very soon REALLY like to be on a huge boat filled with freaks. Most of them probably don't know what is getting ready to happen to their souls, but by Sunday they will be new people. Then I get to slip into my normal surreality with you motherfuckers, and I can't wait for that. The really great news is that I DON'T HAVE TO PACK before the last night of Holy Ship! since I'm in the same room for both cruises...seems like great news now, ask me again how I feel about 5am on the last night of Jam Cruise.
Life: when you think you're doing enough crazy shit all the time, push the envelope. All out is a pace.
