(a person, not a tool.)
i've been reading what little there is about this historical character lately - no one really knows who he was, except apparently he spoke french, wore one suit of diy leather clothes all the time, and spent decades in the latter 19th century walking a loop between the connecticut and hudson rivers. people seem to have liked him and he survives in folklore and the locations of caves he's known to have stayed in along his route. i have half an idea to try and retrace his route this summer.

Goocho only follows me! Lol.
The canaries are a catastrophic area since yesterday, global warming ain't gonna pass tommorow, i'm scared of the fucking ocean in general, let alone fucking tsunamis and shit, and even if i'd stay off the beaches, the rains are so heavy that the trip seems pointless, someone kick me while i'm down
Fuck this shit, 3 months of preparing for a trip to the Canaries just went down the drain, my guitaritst bailed out of the idea to start a job and a "steady life", my bestie is getting all weird and i don't think she wants to go.
i was already preparing for going solo when suddenly life (fucking Shell and coal miners!!!) was all like "nooo of course you don't want to go"

You ever just look at a word and it freaks you out because it's spelled right but you start thinking on some meta shit how does this noise mean this concept? 'Smooth' freaks me out right now.
