'wipe that smile off your face'

but i feel the gravel move beneath my feet
the smell of the gasoline mixed in with the trees
when my faith is strong i know my strength
the threats will be screamed when the vultures feel threatened

to-day i am getting a passport. new picture too. i even shaved, first time in two weeks. not that anyone could tell. i am the worst facial hair growing irishman i know. yesterday i was pouring through old photographs to see if any of them could be used for my passport, and i noticed two things: in most of the photos i am smiling, and i look exactly the same as my last year in high-school.

however, since the photographs with burnt in images of me show myself smiling, i need a new picture. england does not accept anymore passports with smiling faces. either does canada. sourpusses. something about biometric scanning and photo doctoring- neither of which i have, i am as healthy as a bow legged ox. but i tell you what i do have: a new pair of socks. i should use a picture of those new bad boys for my secondary picture.

customs: name...
me: socks, socks mckinstry. i know, i know- it is a bad picture, i tried really hard not to smile.

but my flight will be to england- under $300, then i go up north and take the ferry across. or just take another plane, i have not made up my mind. therefore i need a passport without my pearly whites. and why is it pearly? why not eggshell, or off-white, or ultrawhite, or even dingy, stained, discoloured white? maybe the perly reminds them of the ocean. so then i cannot show off my salty-whites.

I ferried across. Actually from France to England, then from Wales to Ireland. I got a little seasick, mainly from my friends and I leaping into the 100 mph crosswind at the precise moment the ferry dipped off the crest of a wave, making it seem like we could jump 10 feet in the air and 20 feet backward with ease. I effectively overcame the sick feeling by taking a nap.

i read that there is a large ferry that goes to norway from sweeden, i might do that. and to cure sea-sickness, i will probably use my normal cure-all remedy: guinness.

get your passport? you are leaving in april, right?

as the plan goes. passport in a bit, then i wait for the visa

  • where capital letters have been executed! let's see... i really dislike sunny days. i love precipitation of all kinds. snow is my favorite. i wish that it could be no more than fifty degrees fahrenheit, and clouds covering the sky. i enjoy friends and beer- in that order. i dislike wearing shirts. my random thoughts and unanswerable questions keep me up at night. when i sleep i have dreams; long epic dreams. i believe that it is important to be fit in mental, physical, and emotional capacities. any food worth eating should be as organic as possible, without additives that have letters p, k, x, c, h in close proximity without vowels. save a cow- eat a vegetarian.
