Subject: So why do I do what I do

I don't do these things because they're good, or because I think that they'll be good. I do these things because they're interesting. Which is a poor excuse, because what I really mean by that is that I do these things only because they're interesting (to me), which is really an incredibly self-absorbed way to go through life, but still. And sure I hope that they'll be interesting to you, but ultimately, will that drive me? I don't know. Really, if I've told myself a good story, in the end I go home and respect myself. Will any of this improve the world or feed the kids in Afghanistan or make public transportation available to low income travelers or end the war on terror?


But still. It can't really hurt, can it?

Not that that's an explanation.

As for the other, sure, I'll take your place.
